Wiener of Love



Sing-a-long!  Kicking off your Friday with a little light-hearted Dachshund humor, it's Wiener of Love by youtuber dartycolthwain who notes: This is a silly a capella song that I made about my dachshund. It's a song with a double entendre that's actually very nice when you're just thinking about dogs, but if your mind's in the gutter it's dirty as hell.

Have an awesome Friday.

From Dictionary.com...

Like most rules for English spelling, there are exceptions, and weiner and weird display this. In school, you heard: Write i before e except after c or when it sounds like an a as in neighbor and weigh. Exceptions include: beige, codeine, conscience, counterfeit, deify, deity, eight, either, feign, feint, foreign, forfeit, heifer, height, heir, heist, leisure, neither, rein, science, seize, society, sovereign, species, sufficient, surfeit, weight, weiner, weird. (And the list goes on!) Why? The rule only applies to digraphs, so words like deity and science do not count. The rule only applies to digraphs that have the /i:/ (ee) pronunciation, as in "piece." The rule does not apply to words that are recent imports from foreign languages, such as gneiss, dreidel, and enceinte. As far as weiner/wiener, "wiener" is the original spelling (c. 1889, from wiener schnitzel) and weiner is an (erroneous) spelling variant (c. 1961), mainly used in North America.

The rule does not apply to foreign words like "Wiener" which is German for Viennese. "Wien" is the German word for Vienna. "Wiener schnitzel" is German for Viennese schnitzel, a delicious dish.

So we Americans should band together and fight the use of the erroneous spelling variant. Our dachshunds are WIENERS!! Long live the Schnitzels in our lives!!!

Danke schön.

Woof, woof and woof!!! These comments are funnier than the song. Wiener vs Weiner!!! Am I a Wiener or am I a Weiner. Bark to ya all later. From LollyPop, Shilo, Sass and Maggie the 4 wieners, err, ops or is it weiners from Quebec. PS Here people refer to us as Sausages.
