Puscht Comes To Shove

From Beer Hall Putsch to Push Ball Champions

Putsch Ball is the amazing story of how the inmates of Landesberg Prison captured the Push Ball Championship in 1924. Most of the team were involved in Hitler’s failed Beerhall Putsch in 1923. Little did they know they would be playing for their lives in the 1924 Push Ball World Championship.

From Politicus Interruptus

Ask El Gorto

Dear El Gorto,

My husband is driving me up the wall with all of his political angst and it’s ruining our love life. What should I do? 

– Politicus Interruptus

Dear Politicus,

Let me give it to you straight, I never get into politics simply because I can’t be sure who is listening? Do I want to upset my mechanic? Piss off my bookie? Offend my dentist? No thank you!

You know that punk down the street? Someday he might be a brownshirt or even a Gauleiter. So best to keep the trap shut. 

I’ll confess, I always believed an element of truth must be mixed into every lie, but today you can just say whatever. Odds are, they’ll believe you. 

I really feel for those press secretaries and so-called pundits. I see them struggling like Benny Hill to keep a straight face while they’re broadcasting. 

So just tell your husband to get a hobby, maybe something like a model railroad he can tinker with in the basement. Trust me, the passion will return.

From Sorry Sucker

Ask El Gorto
Dear El Gorto,
 
The boys at the gym keep calling me “Sorry Sucker.” What’s a guy to do?
 
— Sorry Sucker
 
Dear Sucker,
 
My gut feeling is you should join another gym, but I bet the fellas there might call you something else, Maybe something worse?

First things first, send me their names and tell me where they live. Sounds like an attitude adjustment is needed.

Secondly, and I know this goes against the grain of my philosophy, but take it down a thousand. If you got to be a sucker, then why not be a sorry one? At least you know you got a problem.
