Perhaps he is friends with Fanny Chmelar ?

Why should he?  It's a common name in Germany and has no rude connotations

It's not an uncommon surname in Germany:


there is indeed - A level physics to revise his measurement of the speed of conduction of sound. It involves a long tube ( C's tube) with lycopodium powder ( finest pollen apparently)

Talking about laughable words,(yeh little things) my Spanish nephew embarrassed his mum 1st time she took him to London zoo! As soon as saw a seal, he shouted at the top of his voice mammy mammy " f???, f???" You can look up the word in Google translate. His mum wasn't very pleased.

In Flemish, there's Kunst and it means Arts. There's a stop on their Brussels metro system near the Aveue Louise and the Chausée Wavre called 'Wet Kunst' - wet meaning place....massive sniggers for one mother and sister when they visited me - and for other hordes of English speakers.

i would imagine it's pronounced kooooonts

In Flemish or Dutch, K-euu-nts
