Thanks for joining — with a rhyme, no less. Let’s invite a limerick to the party:

It’s that time of year
When people drink lots of beer
And when you’re really spent
You can sleep in a tent
And emerge when your head is more clear

It’s Oktoberfest!
So drink to your heart’s content,
But don’t be a pest!

It’s Oktoberfest
Go get the Beer-a-bago
And sleep in a tent

That is not correct, but, because all the counties surrounding it were (are?) dry, Addison wound up with tons of restaurants and bars. I’m not surprised that they’re having their own Oktoberfest. Besides, everything is bigger in Texas (dirndl and mug jokes aside), so it’s also not surprising that Addison’s Oktoberfest is the third largest in the world.*

*These statements are not eductional. They are an excuse for me to hark back to my days in Dallas many years ago.

And with a helping or two of beer mugs (excuse the pun), speaking altogether would become useless.

One’s got to love Germany…

Sadly, this has proved to be ineffective.
