Great stuff, iconomy!

I haf palbidations by de heardt every time I see your name on the front page. And I wasn't disappointed - as with all your posts, this is both entertaining and edifying. In terms of educational value, for instance, from this page I have learned that back in the early days of photography, animals enjoyed taking photos of each other much more frequently than today.

"I vould haf palbidations by de heardt if you vould let me take your picture." - Don't believe him! Two weeks from now those pictures will be all over those "wives and girlfriends" web sites!

Well, that's probably true, but that doesn't mean the original comment is false. I think it probably goes like this:

1. you vould let me take your picture
2. I begen plazirink self from picture
3. I vould haf palbidations by de heardt
4. ???
5. Profidt!

(where "???" signifies contacting all the "wives and girlfriends" web sites)
