Comments: The Nashville Gas Shortage

You can watch without sound and it will give you subtitles (not quite the same effect, I'll grant you). Still, hilarious.

How does a city run out of gas? And if Nashville, why not the rest of the country? We seem to be getting our supplies just fine (although the price went up to $4.29 for a few days, I've seen $3.69 recently).

Actually, the subtitles are what's filled with the foul language. The sound is in German and I didn't actually catch any swear words in that, although the actor does do a good job of capturing Hitler's incomprehensibility, so it's hard to say for sure.

We are out of gas here in the Atlanta area, too, and if you do find someone with gas--as we found out yesterday--you can only buy a minimal amount for over $4 a gallon. I was allowed $20. I don't use too much gas, so hopefully that will do me until some sense of normalcy returns. It is so bizarre.

There seems to be a ton of these parodies on YouTube. The first one I saw had him mad because the Cowboys lost to the Giants in the playoffs. He was frothing about the point spread.

I feel better about understanding so wenig myself now! We actually watched that whole movie thanks to Netflix. I don't remember how much of the rest of it I understood or even whether the whole thing was in German. I never will forget the horrifying scene with Frau Goebbels, though. NEVER.
