Roll out the barrel...

Magnet #7 - ChickNStein, Germany

No, not really a place name. This one's arguably one of my more attention-getting magnets. A friend of mine brought it back from her trip to Germany.

But how weird and funny is this magnet. Like, who designed it? Had to have been a guy - I mean who else would want to smoosh together a woman and a beer stein. Sheesh, I'd hate to see the boy version of this one.

That guy probably went to one too many Oktoberfests.

Sadly, I've only done the ones at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, and EPCOT in Orlando.

Even sadder, the last time I was in Germany, there were still two of them. I was in West Germany, performing with a band in Berchtesgaden, just below Hitler's Eagle's Nest. The memories are hazy, but I remember mountains and a lake cruise. And apple schnapps. But that's another story.

Pin It!

Shut it. OTOH, it *was* 1990, the year Nat was born, so yeah, she probably doesn't have a clue.
