"True to Munster's love of modern art, light bulbs now hang in the cages..."

"... as a symbol that ideas cannot be bound by bars."

Munster of course being just south of Appleton and a casual bikeride away..

Kidding aside can a reader ask what chain of events brought this to light today? (no pun intended)

@HD I was reading an old case called People v. Philips (about the priest-penitent privilege). Class prep. Munster's mentioned.

I hope they're incandescent bulbs and not CFLs.

Such a famous münster that they named the whole town for it. I lived near the beautiful Ulmer Münster for a couple years. A peaceable change to Protestantism through referendum there. The Schwabians are much more laid back.

I can't see the cages.

Where are the cages? I don't see cages.

I had to Google for images of cages and closeup

"I can't see the cages.

You chose the blue pill.

lemondog said...

Another image but no light bulbs.

Shouldn't those cages have rotting corpses? It's a European thing.

Synova said...

Thanks. Now I can see them. Now that I know where to look.

Well, at least skulls and some bones clanking around.

Would have been more dramatic to have cages swinging from the protruding gargoyles or whatever

And I thought it was going to be a story about Fred Gwynn and Yvonne Dicarlo.

lucid said...

Just like some Islamists, except that it happened 500 years ago.

But what is the story on Munster cheese?

Ann Althouse said...

Suddenly, Munster cheese seems so much less appetizing.

lucid said...

Yeah, but Munster cheese melted over a toasted English muffin is still one of the best and most soothing late night half-dinners. I'll just think of Munster Cheese as coming from Kraft, USA.

lucid said...

hunh. Munster and Muenster are two different cheeses. Who knew?
