Day In Day Out

German breakfast Frühstück is bread, cheese, butter, meat. German lunch is usually hot, but if you pack a lunch it's bread, cheese, butter and meat. German dinner Abendbrot is bread, butter, cheese and meat.

  1. Hey, I've noticed that you embed alt text into your images. The reason I've only noticed now is that Firefox does not display the alt-text when you hover over the image. That is because apparently you are supposed to use the title tag instead of the alt tag to show tooltip text.

    I've checked the, ahem, *other* comic that is known for embedded text and it uses the title tag on the image too (and this works in Firefox).

    You might want to check that out.

    1. Yeah I just use the alt text for google searchability, I don't intend for people to actually read it. In what browser does the alt text show up when you hover over an image?

    2. The text there seems to be a mixture of what should go into an alt text (ideally a literal transcript, so if I remembered a fragment of the previous comic, a search for `"german at daycare" "lucky you"` sould find it), and a text that further explains the comic (which occasionally would be useful as a title text, or just as plain text under it).

  5. This may explain my deep love for potatoes. It's not because I'm part Irish, it's because I'm also part German!

    1. I was gonna say, I thought potatoes were the Irish stereotype, as it's not at all something I would think of for Germans. But then, maybe I know too much about Germany and have lost the stereotype there... or don't actually know as much as I think. Dundundunnnn.

    2. You'd be surprized how many nations got stereotyped as potato eaters. Belarussians folk (and not very polite) name across ex-USSR is "bulbash", from Belarussian bulba = potato. Most of the jokes about them are around potato growing and eating.

  6. Of course the difference is in what bread you use! You can eat a different one for every meal and still not repeat yourself after a year!

    If you ask Germans working somewhere else what they miss the most it is always: real BREEEAAADDD!!
