Cracks in the Surface

IMG_1797

And speaking of University kids (from yesterday’s post) lets now talk about where the hang out.  Max & Moritz is a popular dance club in Munich, and these are just a sampling of the creative “eye catching” ads they are running around Munich.  Ironically, the name of the club is developed from a popular children’s story in Germany about two mischievous kids who go about playing pranks on just about everyone they know.  You have the gun powder in the teacher’s pipe, the beetles in the uncle’s bed, or the stealing of the chickens and blaming the dogs.  All ends well I suppose, as the two kids are eventually caught in their own hoaxes.  In one tail the two kids sneak into a closed bakery and fall into a vat of dough at the bakery and are thoroughly baked, or another version tells of them slitting some grain sacks, only to be stuffed inside, taken to the mill, and ground to bits for the nearby ducks.  I suppose the moral of the story is careful which path you choose.
