Selected Articles from The Reading Room


April means April Fool’s! The primary “fool” known to stein collectors is Till Eulenspiegel. Webster’s Deluxe Unabridged Dictionary identifies Till Eulenspiegel as a 14th Century Brunswick peasant whose pranks and drollness were the subject of widespread tales. Read about his exploits in Till Eulenspiegel, Merry Prankster.

Till makes another appearance on HR stein #436 in the Featured Stein article of Octoer 2005.

Two other pranksters, Max and Moritz were written about in the Featured Stein article of May 2001.

Moritz made a solo appearance as the E. Bohne Sohne character stein in the Featured Stein article of April 2004.

Continuing in a light vein for April, you might enjoy reading a tongue-in-cheek Humorous Look at Terminology.

These articles, and more, can be found in the READING area or in the archives of Featured Stein articles.
