German Culture

I missed the second portion of my test in German IV on "The Adventures of Munchhausen Fairytales." I asked my good friend Krystle to sum the stories up for me and I said to myself, "Wow, these people almost conquered the world? God, would we be fucked." Here is a taste of the summaries she gave me.

there was this count dude who had respect for munchhausen so he gave him
one of
his horses. so this horse was all wild and muchhausen tamed it and
paraded it
around like a little lamb (haha). so then one day day they were
doing something
(i forget what) and they stopped to let the horse get a
drink. so the horse
keeps drinking and drinking and munchhausen is like
"what the hell! why's this
thing drinking so much fuckin water?!" he
goes to pat the horse's butt and
there's nothing there. so he freaks out and
realizes that the gate cut the horse
in half and that the other half is out
in the field grazing with the other
horses. so the groom comes and he brings
the other half and puts the horse back
together with Laurel sprouts. so a
few days later they notice that an arbor is
growing on the horse's back and
Munchhausen rode in shade from then on.

What a fucked up culture. What ever happened to a classic Prince Charming tale?

Yeah, I noodled for one hour tonight. Not good.
