The Chronicle of fools we show you the Uninteressanteste and Unaktuellste: the face of our time in the distorting mirror of Carnival... of specifically German carnival, if you's right is.
"We To want to be funny, be happy, be completely left out - so let us laugh wholeheartedly."
The peoples of Germania by a mysterious happiness be taken year after year, which manifests itself in particular on public streets and squares using a special type of movement. The Rhinelander is called such German drinking songs.
Under the motto ' a people and. a movement ' millions a month limited happiness deliver themselves. Is infected by the confetti as a visible virus and under the impression of the Narrenfreiheit confronts the man in the mirror of his soul, and something is partially out of nowhere.
This phenomenon is still unexplored scientific. Even the "great"Brockhaus gropes in the dark. "Carnival - origin uncertain, about from mittellateinisch ' carne vale' 'Flesh, farewell!'"
That this goodbye when parting is meant, is provided on numerous Studio and other parties very clearly in question. Acts as undressing, what was originally intended as a disguise.
Secret wishes To find in the costume to the reality at least. A geknechteter accountant suddenly sees himself as Lord Nelson, and the man who sold newspapers on your corner, is a smaller Emperor in his reality.
There used to be people who moved their beds to get money in the Carnival, now in the West German economic miracle life everyone seems to so well that he can certainly afford some exuberance.
The General Narrenfreiheit, used by every generation best endeavours, at least as alibi against the accusation of abandon.
And which masked children by adults, now, not just the most joyous impression. But we strive to make the whole thing too seriously. After all, we are in the Carnival.
The Chronicle of the week: New Mexico: why Carnival? This monkey here is bitter Ernst. He is the subject of the American space Institute in New Mexico, which prepared the flight of a manned rocket into space.
In a Jet carriage the chimpanzee is exposed to physical strain of rocket launches.
What is the monkey, the Americans the French rat. White rats as space pilots are trained in the French experimental stations. But asked whether tailored suits take the discomfort from them, no tail.
Someday, the experiences of this rat certainly benefit the people; in our particular case the American marine Lieutenant John Glenn, who started his training in New Mexico, and the Americans hope that he will be the first man in space. Paris: As for the costume, it is only a short step from space in the Carnival. Are no limits in the Carnival of the imagination, although we assure you honour that these hair paintings have nothing to do with the Carnival. Rather, they are the rage of the French Le nozze di Figaro.
The Chronicle of fools "today are sharecroppers folk festival and General merriment in Germany they are widely spread especially known in Cologne and Mainz". Golden Mainz undoubtedly to the strongholds of the humour, and also in that year reached the stupid driving with the arrival of the Mainz Carnival Club its first highlights
"... You must not bring Mainz in mood, they are's already are's already..."
And as we now already have ruined it with all fools, the memory of a speech by Carlo Schmid is allowed us, that he has kept three years ago. "I think the humor for the salt of the policy, and what means salt, the white manbesonders is, if the doctor has forbidden to eat something salted."
The Carnival is the politician should be commitment. The popular handmade speakers but seem to live diet strictly on the humor.
"... Rome I was present, had the blessing of medal in gold, silver and bronze, the Michel took his chance and catering was famos, tomatoes and. Spaghetti Soß..."
Sometimes there are also funny ideas - such as for example the hit of "three Mosterts".
"Remains of the old you could rely on it, he did until now and do have some year, I let no one else put me, the old remains, that is clear..."
The Chronicle of the week Bern: This noise gets us into reality. It is the musical accompaniment to the works of the Swiss sculptor Tinguely, which has collected scrap metal to art and professional art critics called art genius. If we follow their opinion, we have it here with great art to do instead of a Carnival joke.
The Chronicle of fools scarcely less artfully proceed in establishing the essential order of imagination. After the order, the Carnival every year the German drang beats a wide breach.
For those industries that the Carnival is forcing to profits increased, the toys industry is undoubtedly one of. This is the emphasis of less on the word joke than on the industry.
The närrischsten of fools Carnival not so Very much is a manifestation of natural serenity as a rather stalwart service, namely to the humor.
With the sales of the beverage industry could be proved finally that not only the war but also the spirits trade is one of the fathers of Shant. "The festive parades with noise, dance, mask and another covering served ward off evil spirits and the expulsion of the winter, probably originally with especially the reversal of human roles and the transformation played a big role."
Generally the Kadam maintain noisy Customs is committed to. But whether in the city or on the Bavarian first Alm - almost always stupid driving ends with the ice-cold Kneipp Spa of disillusionment.
Grindelwald: we can carry us from the heights of the atmosphere rather on the wintry heights of Switzerland in the Grindelwald! With the lift, it is the starting place for the traditional downhill on the women's. The race goes beyond a total of 1,300 meters and the competitors have to deal with a difference in altitude of over 600 meters.
Heidi Biebl, the Allgäu Olympic gold medalist from Squaw Valley, showed that she is still in top form. 2: 24.8 minutes she secured the first place...... a friendly tail wagging and a kiss.
Wengen: Hunting the international men's elite to seconds over snow and slopes also led in the Switzerland, to Wengen. The Lauberhorn race became one of the most difficult competitions ever carried out. The runners reached speeds up to 100 kilometers per hour.
The 21-year-old Frenchman Guy Perillat was the outstanding winner. On his metal skis, he scored new record by a margin of 4.5 seconds.
