Oktober Fest

25 September 2012, 12:50

OKTOBER FEST

The October fest is a fest or celebration of October by the German contingent in Windhoek and Germany. The main grease that keeps its wheels turning is the consumption of beer. And only certain brands. The beer is loaded into huge beer mugs and sold as such - It is well worthwhile to note that Germans can consume beer in volumes which boggle the mind yet they come unscathed from this libative orgy the next morning: Proclaiming; “War ist der Bier?” Hangovers were never a part of German evolution hence the copious amounts of beer could spill  (wrong word) over an edge and never see the bottom. The drunker the jollier.  This description is only valid up to October 1969 when a gang of  apprentices carried out the massacre of the century at the Oktober fest. These mad buggers bought and brought brandy into the precincts of the Fest and undermined the traditions of centuries. Mind you, brandy is helpful if you mix it with beer and end up with a traditional  Kleine-kleine.  Kleine-Kleine is a horrid mixture of beer and brandy in one glass. The immediate reaction is to anesthetise the user.    

Drunkenness is proportional to time:  Simply stated it says: The longer you drink the more pis… drunk you will get. Unfortunately this level of maths never reached the realms of apprenticeships:     

First of all a visit was made to a vendor selling a automobile gimmick to enhance the spark, ( we know about that) The appies had a long stretched out battle with the seller who eventually packed up his tent and left. Runners were employed to keep the appies in continual supply: this was the era of demand then supply. And the German guys were saying “Donner und Wetter”    

There eventually came a point of saturation where more and more beer could not soak in and left our appies dribbling instead of drinking.  Due to some unforeseeable reason the appies became comatose and laid around just where they went. Eventually they went nowhere most of the time.    

The chief appy must have been a good Samaritan in his time because he went to fetch a Volksie beetle. The appies were unceremoniously  loaded into the Beetle and returned from whence they came. The Railway hostel.    

Over indulging of the vine and bottle may cause problems in the abdomen and vomiting copiously which our appy brigade did very well indeed.  They were unloaded, still comatose at the hostel and dumped into a bath filled with water.. Two at a time. Then the real vomiting started. It was said that the vomit actually like a blanket floating on the water. Any remaining Samaritans left the room.- to pee I suppose.  Appies tend to hate the month of October. Wonder why?.
