It all began a couple of weeks ago. It seemed that umlauts just kept popping up.
For example, a friend on Facebook shared this blog: Unnecessary Umlaut, which is full of umlauts. (And some cool Photoshopped album covers, too.)
As we were driving in Central Illinois on the way to my sister’s wedding, I saw several billboards for this: Süd’s Motor Car Company, Inc.
There was even an umlaut on the comics page last week:
What’s with all the umlauts?
Last Friday, Ed even surprised me with a six-pack of German beer. (I know! He’s so romantic.) He brought me something new to try from Trader Joe’s: Dunkelweizen. But there’s no umlaut over the u. How disappointing! (But delicious, nonetheless!)
