Why Americans should not travel post?

What happened? This was a somewhat entertaining post and got yanked pretty fast. What's up?

i thought it was funny, too.
Where I live, the state issues car tags with trigraphy prefixes on the numbers.
Some obvious combinations are supressed, but FAT and APE got through.

One guy I know had two tags: one FATxxx and the other APExxx, where xxx are 3 digits i don't recall.

I told the one where the German radio guy was interviewing people on the streets and asking them, in German, "Who wrote Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusic?"
Was it (A) Brahms, (B) Beethoven or (C) Haydn. The looks and answers were screams.

Let's see if this one gets pulled!!

During college I worked as a tour guide at Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park. We kept a book of the stupid questions we were asked; here are a couple of the questions:

"Why did they build the cave so far from the interstate? It's very inconvenient."

"How much of the cave is undiscovered?" To which most of guides would reply, "Exactly half of the cave is undiscovered."

Ok,my story.

I was around 11 years old when my parents took me and my three little brothers to Germany to visit family.

After landing at the airport, the 6 of us plus our luggage got on a train for the 3-hour journey to grandma's house out in the rural suburbs. we were tired.

After a few hours, an elderly German woman boarded the train and was staring at us. She saw we were clearly foreign and eventually asked where we were from.

My father replied "We are visiting from the USA, not far from New York."

The old woman then asked "Oh, did you come the whole way by train?"

true.

Evidently the Friday R&R got yanked too. Hasn't Fodor's been fun this week? Guess we are just suppose to read the advertisments.
