thought for the day

Do kids in the US play with little plastic colored beads that can be fused together into elaborate shapes with a common household clothes iron? Do you know the German for "common household clothes iron?" It is "bügeleisen." Now you know how I'm spending my Saturday with my girls.

I wonder if Captain Beefheart knew this. Then he could have changed the words to one of his songs every time he played Dusseldorf: "I'm gonna bügeleisen ya, baby!"
