On his first date, he noticed on her shelf

  • On his first date, he noticed on her shelf a first edition copy of 'The Trail'. Then and there, he decided to devote his life to Kafka. Unaware, it was her roommate's book.
  • 'The Trail of the Lonesome Pine' by Kafka is set in tbe Appalachian Mountains in Bohemia. Geologist Josef K is a stranger in town. He meets the beautiful Fraulein Tolliver in a tin
  • mine, the most romantic spot that Josef K, geologist, can imagine. Fraulein Tolliver detests the cold and uncomfortable mine almost as much as she loves her darling Josef and his
  • earnestness. The picnic on the floor of the mine did not look appetizing to Frl. Tolliver. Josef K patted the blanket enticingly, kicking up dust. "I have pickles, meine Leibchen
  • Suddenly interested but still playing it coy she says, "If you say you have mustard I might believe you and sit down with you Josef K. Only to enjoy the pickles & mustard though."
  • She may have been coy, but she was a sucker for a nice pastrami. Surprisingly, Josef K. wasn't after her body. He just needed to share his discovery with someone in a Jewish deli.
  • Even though she was in a pickle, she appreciated the rye look on Josef K.'s face. She could tell that he could cut the mustard. And the cheese, into thin slices, like waxed paper
  • in a publisher's workshop. Josef smiled wryly, his muslces flexing and bulging underneath his thin Deli Apron. "You think I became an expert Deli craftsman by sitting on my ass?"
  • Josef threw baumkuchen at the chief editor. "All you do is laze about! It's time for you limp lettuce publishers to get ripped... with the help of GERMAN DELICACIES!!"
  • "But Josef, no one has to get ripped. That's just some muscle-mag meme." Josef was too disciplined to be infuriated but he did say, "Oh, ja? What about cetacean currywurst?"
