Panic Course

"Panisch Kurs" means "Panic Course".
I saw this poster in a pub in Nuremberg. Actually it was an advertisement for a Spanish training (=Spanisch Kurs). The first letter of "Spanisch" was covered by an other poster and it changed the meaning completely into a “Panic Course”.

How would a panic course look like?

"Hello, I'm Udo, your panic instructor."
"Today and during the next few sessions you will learn how to panic. I don't mean that whiny-help-murmuring kind of panic but the screaming, howling, jumping-for-salvation kind of rush-of-blood-to-the-head-panic."
"You are newbies regarding panic. You have no idea yet how hysterical you can be. I will enlighten you".
"Today we will discuss the nature of panic. By the end of today's session you will be able to perform a very convincing oh-my-god-there-is-a-spider-beside-my-bed panic."
"Next week we will concentrate on I-don't-have-anything-to-dress-and-today-is-the-date-of-my-life-panic".
"Future lessons will be about Titanic-life-boat-fighting-panic and iphone-big-sale-panic".
"And now I want to hear you moan! Are you ready for the panic of your life? Damn, I can't hear you. Are you ready?"

Oh, by the way: Don't panic, it's only my imagination.


This was my post number 500. A long way since the beginning of 2006. Many many words, a huge pile of photos and a lot more of my inside that I imagined. No idea where this leads to but it's still fun doing this blogging thing.
