Oktoberfest and E in Lederhosen

Oktoberfest started September 19th and runs through October 4th this year in Munich Germany and many biergartens around the world. When one hears "Oktoberfest"

one instantly recalls the multitude of buxom and beautiful dirndl clad young women

serving massive mugs of ice cold frothy golden brew.

Well, at least this one does.

Some Bonez readers may instead prefer to think of the massive amounts of German food one can consume under the auspices of Oktoberfest partying. Just think of the mounds of traditional delicacies like Hendl, Schweinsbraten, Haxn, Steckerlfisch,

Würstel or warm Brezeln, Knödeln, Käsespätzle, Reiberdatschi, and Sauerkraut. Or for the more adventurous appetite how about a little Obatzda or Weisswurst? Oh, and yes, I think there is a lot of beer available, too.

We at Bonez realize that not all of our faithful readers and visitors are as into the long held traditions such as dirndl wearing beer toting smiling young barmaids and limitless delicious steaming fish on a stick that so defines Oktoberfest for most of us. That is why we took special care to find someone who was willing to impersonate E and dress in the dreaded yet extremely traditional lederhosen. It wasn't easy but we were able to coerce ... er ... I mean, bribe ... no, persuade one such E lookalike to suck it up and take one for the team since the team was not willing to do it themselves. Thus, for the Bonezian ladies out there we are proud to present our Mr. Not E in traditional German lederhosen for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy and don't worry about thanking or sending us money because we know how much you sincerely appreciate our valiant efforts without you having to humble yourself in print in our comments section. Consider it our Oktoberfest gift in these trying financial times.


UPDATE: Since Herr E was not happy with his body double stand-in for this illustrious Oktoberfest Bonez post a management decision was made for a redo of the photo session with E standing in for himself wearing his custom tailored sauerkraut-filled lederhosen. It was a scramble to get the staff photographer with such short notice. He had just finished upchucking his half digested breakfast of greasy Hardee's sausage biscuits and Jack Daniels spiked coffee when he walked into the Bonez studios and saw E standing there waiting for his camera time. Once the then half crocked elderly gentleman picked himself off the floor where he had rolled in uncontrolled laughter for several embarrassing minutes ... and then reattached his ass that had been inadvertently laughed off ... things finally got rolling. The amazing results are ... well, amazing. The following Bonez exclusive photograph was snapped for all humanity to cherish under the most adverse of photography conditions. E's professionalism, stage presence and uncanny calm under public pressure is ... well, amazing, also. So without further ado about nothing, Bonez is once again proud to present to the adoring and finicky public the amazing E in his amazing sauerkraut stuffed lederhosen. I think I sense history being made just like when Farrah Fawcett did that red swimsuit shot with her obviously hardened ... er ... you all remember it, right?

Wow ... just wow ... work it, E!

I'm not certain why an impersonator is necessary. I'm wearing lederhosen stuffed with saurkraut right now, in fact. Hope the smell isn't bothering you.

E ~ You know how much I love sauerkraut ... well, at least I love it when it isn't stuffed in some dude's lederhosen. But with that minor point aside, I thought your normal demure and shy personality would not allow you to expose your bizarre sauerkraut stuffed lederhosen fetish to the beloved Bonez community. Now that I know (why didn't you speak up at the last Bonez Crew board meeting?) I will arrange an update to this post with the Real E in his sauerkraut stuffed lederhosen. Happy now?

You know ... it is beginning to smell a tad strange in here ... and I am craving mustard. Weird.

E said...

Damnit. Now I'm craving a sausage biscuit and the closest Hardee's is about 15 miles away.

E ~ It has been a coon's age since I had a Hardee's sausage biscuit! Man, that brings back some memories. I was introduced to them way back in '81 or '82 by one of my fellow police officers ... well, actually we were federal agents but most folks wouldn't know what that was or care. But Hardee's sausage biscuits were one of my rewards after all night stake outs. Those were the days of my ignorant carnivore youth so please don't hold it against me.
