Das ist Blunderbar !

Where's Mel Brooks when you need him ?
This article from Reuters says it's like if 'The Producers'
had opened an eatery.....

MUMBAI (Reuters) - A new restaurant in India's financial hub,
named after Adolf Hitler and promoted with posters
showing the German leader and Nazi swastikas, has
infuriated the country's small Jewish community.

'Hitler's Cross'**, which opened last week, serves up a wide
range of continental fare and a big helping of controversy,
thanks to a name the owners say they chose to stand out
among hundreds of Mumbai eateries.

"We wanted to be different. This is one name that will stay
in people's minds," owner Punit Shablok told Reuters.

**I don't think Hitler's cross. In fact I think he may be saying
to himself, " It's a gas! "

Nerd, Geek or Dork ?

On occasion, I come across an
Ask Yahoo question worth sharing........

Dear Yahoo!:
What's the difference between a nerd, a geek, and a dork?
- Josh
, Michigan

Dear Josh:
We've been called all three, and to be honest,
we always assumed they meant the same thing. However,
according to the cool kids, there are differences.

Official definitions for nerd, geek, and dork each use the
words "inept" and "foolish."

Nerds have the added distinction of being "unattractive." Ouch.
While it's hard to argue with the dictionary, we sought out
definitions from the Internet at large.

According to, nerds are people of above-average
intelligence who place little importance on their appearance.
Nerds are often aware of their status, but they don't mind.
In fact, many take pride in the putdown, as it means they're
smart and not wrapped up in superficial worries.
Geek is a more
specific term. Back in the day, geeks worked at carnivals, and
(according to the dictionary) "bit the heads off live chickens."
Thankfully, the term now has a different connotation.
Like nerds, geeks are smart, but they tend to focus more on
technology. As Urban Dictionary explains, these are the
people you make fun of in high school and later work for as an adult.

Being called a "dork" is the biggest insult of the three. There's no
way you can spin it into something positive. After all, even the
dictionary writes that dorks are "stupid" people. And to make
matters worse, dorks assume they're cool. Oh, and they smell, too.

So, to sum things up, if someone calls you a geek or a nerd,
thank them. If someone calls you a dork, consider going back to
school and investing in some new deodorant.
