Well? Can you say it, my little Eichhörnchen?
(FULL DISCLOSURE: No, I can’t pronounce “eichhörnchen”. That’s not the point!)
Try “Oachkatzl”. Or even better: Oachkatzlschwoaf.
Then again, you there living in the US of A cannot even speak English anyway. Let alone spell it correctly.
Let alone names and places that are not in English.
You’re too kind. I’m from the rural South, so I can’t even speak proper American. Stellllllah!
