Hamburg, Frankfurt, Vienna: Teaching CW Nevius, At Long Last, How to Spell District 8 Supervisor Scott Wiener’s Name

Monday, December 26th, 2011

All right, this one is easy, CW Nevius. Leave us begin.

Exhibit A:

Now, just as the word “hamburger” came from Hamburg, Germany (I guess, I don’t know, but work with me here, people), and the word “frankfurter” came from Frankfurt, Germany, the word “wiener” came from Vienna, Austria.

I’m srsly.

So, Chuckles, when you think of Scott Wiener, just imagine him in a Mozart wig or something. That way you’ll think of Vienna and then you’ll never misspell Wiener’s name again.

(Please note that this critique completely ignores the oppressively maudlin tone of Neviusese’s entire end-of-the-year holiday bit. For some reason, Neve’s writings are 80% Republican and 20% maudlin.)

This concludes yet another public spanking of CW Nevius.

Merry Christmas!
