    Otto! Situation report.
    No sign of her, captain.
    Finally. Set a course for Minsk.
    Damn.

    Otto! Situation report!
    No trace of her.
    Finally! Set a course for (Minst)
    Verdammt! (Shouldn’t need translation)

    I’m not sure what “Minst” is. Westminster, perhaps?

    Remember: Mit Romney? Nein! Ohne Romney!

    “Minst” is actually Minsk. The last letter is a “k”, which looks a lot like a “t” in the Fraktur font.

    Thanks, runar!
    Say… we should let these U-boaters go. They might pop up in the fabled NW Passage!

    @wilburpan

    Thanks for that.

    I have a friend in Minsk,
    Who has a friend in Pinsk,
    Whose friend in Omsk
    Has friend in Tomsk
    With friend in Akmolinsk.
    His friend in Alexandrovsk
    Has friend in Petropavlovsk,
    Whose friend somehow
    Is solving now
    The problem in Dnepropetrovsk.

    And when his work is done -
    Ha ha! – begins the fun.
    From Dnepropetrovsk
    To Petropavlovsk,
    By way of Iliysk,
    And Novorossiysk,
    To Alexandrovsk to Akmolinsk
    To Tomsk to Omsk
    To Pinsk to Minsk
    To me the news will run,
    Yes, to me the news will run!

    — Tom Lehrer, Nicolai Ivanovich Lobachevsky

    To Minsk, or not to Minsk: That is the question.

    It’ll be hard to get to Minsk, which is about 300 miles from the Baltic Sea.

    But they managed to get their U-Boat into lemonade pitcher in Windsor, so . . .

    I was going to say all that, but it looks like you published first.

    So happy to know that I am not the only person on earth who remembers Tom Lehrer with gratitude and glee.

    I’ve still got all of his records on vinyl. Along with digitized versions, of course.
