Best Construct of the day: "Mutter Blamage und ihre Schinder"

The best phrase I read today comes from Daniel Haas of the German magazine, Spiegel.

When reviewing Britney Spears' upcoming album, Blackout, Haas implemented the catchy title:

"Mutter Blamage und ihre Schinder."

A clever spin on Brecht's Mutter Courage und Ihre Kinder, I thought.

Ja. Definitely, a future high-frequency phrase. Laughed over it today too.
