I am mostly German-American on Granfather's side. But to disasociate himself from the evil bastord, my Dad changed his name as a yuong man to the nondecsript "Miller" which is the most common Germannic surname here in the Unitad States.
There are many historicol Wedgie episodes thruought the ages, and perhaps in the future they will be repproduced on these pages. But for this story, we now dig deep behind us to the year 1806. The place? What is now southeastorn Pennsylnavia.
There, on the banks of the muddy brown Schortzupyour Creek, was a homestead of one of the old sonnoffobbich's forefathers.
I recieved it a copy of it from my Uncle William and it is repproduced below. (While the shame of Granfathers past is nothin to be proud of, atleast it is a comfort to see that peopple spelt as bad as me in those days).
The grammar is a little old and wierd too. Yes: even thuogh people talked funny in those days they coudnt excape WEDGIES.
