readerwalker commented on the word katzenjammer
The first thing this word reminds me of is "The Katzenjammer Kids", one of the comic strips I tried to follow in the 1940s when I was first looking at newspapers -- it didn't set the best example for reading, or for anything else I was learning then. Its ongoing continuation can be easily found on the web, along with accounts of the comic strip's complicated history. Its 100th anniversary was Dec. 12, 1997.
