This week, one of Germany’s greatest humorists has died. The man on the beach is reading the most disreputable German boulevard newspaper ‘Bild’ (my keyboard cringed when I typed the word ‘newspaper’ in this connotation), which is famous for its large-letter black and red titlepage, with the sad news shouted at the reader.
And I am sure they managed to show some naked woman accompanying the news.
Nevertheless is the photo very poignant in its contrasts – the quiet scene with the air mattress versus the shouting newspaper headlines.
Martina, as we all know people need to be tittytained (¢ Z. Brzezinski, in BILD context the first part is to be understood in the genuine slang meaning).
It’s probably an image for us Germans, with all those national implications…
This newspaper is probably like The National Enquirer, which could hardly be called a newspaper!
