----brought to you by Beebopareebop Pflaumen Cake

GK: Just when you think you have everything under control, you get a call from your boss saying, Why don't you take a few days off, we're reorganizing your division, don't worry about a thing, and by the way, what are all these e-mails from someone named Boopsie? And your doctor calls and says maybe you should come in for those tests ---- in fact, how about you come in today? And then your tax accountant calls and says, I made a little mistake in my calculations and it looks like you owe the government some money. In fact, about $18,000. And it was due last October. I'm getting you a lawyer. But if the police should come to your door, go with them. We'll meet you at the jail. And then your daughter calls and says she's fallen in love with a musician. He's going to move into her apartment and she's going to sell her car so she can buy him a guitar.

 

Wouldn't this be a good time for a piece of Pflaumen Cake? Yes, nothing gets the taste of defeat and humiliation out of your mouth like Beebopareebop Pflaumen Cake.
Hast Kummer? Brauchst nicht weiter suchen.
Hast doch Mutterns Pflaumenkuchen.
Du kannst ihn kalt oder warm versuchen.
Kannst wenigstens den Erfolg verbuchen.

 

Mama's little baby loves Pflaumen, Pflaumen
