Legion Of The ‘Hog

Würzburg - Igel.jpg (195 KB)

Picture from the Schloss in Würzburg.
Either all of the Heraldric animals were already taken and this poor bastard got stuck with the hedgehog
or
This sucker purchased a shield with an eagle and the German vendor gave him “Ein Igel”.

    5. Aw man, ack has been to all the fine places. I fucking love Würzburg.

      And even though it’s been a while since I’ve been there, I’m pretty sure I heard someone mention that Würzburg is known for having many Igels.

      Igels in Würzburg… its more likely than I thought.

      This could be true though. I live 100k from Würzburg, and we do have a lot of hedgehogs here. None of them are particularly fast, however…

    7. I kicked an Igel *one time* while in Freiburg, and I still get crap about it to this day. I’m sure it’s from this guy’s family.

      Kicked an Igel? Damn, brother. That is low.

      I heard that John Wayne Gacy and Ted Bundy kicked hedgehogs and that’s why they was so evil.

      Aha! See? I was right. Yeah the area there is especially lovely. Perfect for Igels.

      Igels aren’t fast? Have you never seen Sonic in action! Oh snap.

    11. What do you mean by “Schloss”?
      “Residenz” or “Festung Marienberg”?
      I’ve been born there, but never seen this statue

    12. I want to go to Europe and check out statues.

      Festung Marienberg. There is museum on the western side. This statue is located at the entrance to the hall of classic nut crackers.

      For those not into Germanic fetishes – I shit you not – there is a whole section of the museum dedicated to “nut crackers through the ages”.

      @Puulaahi:
      Just hit the Louvre, best collection I have ever seen. Or let me know when you hit German dirt and I will drag you on a pub crawl through Nürnberg or Stuttgart.

    16. @ack: Nürnberg? You’re kidding me, I’m living there. Perhaps I even know you ^^.My god, how many Germans are here at MCS? We all should meet someday. And drink good German beer for poor tiki.

      Nicht genug, aber wir haben auch eine hübsche Östereicherin.

      I used to live in Nürnberg Südstadt, just off of Gibitzenhof. Now I live 100k away and return as often as I can. It’s an awesome city to live in and I wish that I was back there.

    18. The world is incredibly small, even the world of the internets. I bet someday in the past we met in the subway. Nuremberg really is beautiful, and it is a pity that many of the medieval buildings were destroyed in WW II.
      Außerdem sind Lebkuchen einfach toll. 🙂
