but one thing that I enjoyed ever more about the city, was Hamburg's sense of humor. I don't know if you've caught this yet, but I love puns. Like in a completely ridiculously, how do I still have friends kind of way. And I do not discriminate based on language. So when we ran across some Hamburg trash cans with little pithy catch phrases, I knew it was love (with the city, not the trash).
For those non-German speakers out there - a little explanation: Trash in German is Müll and millionaire is Millionär. The sentence "Ich wär so gerne Millionär" means "I'd like to be a millionaire." Except this trash can changed "millionär" to "Müllionär." Get it, Müll - Müllionär. It's a trash can and wants to be a trash-ionaire! Ok... if I have to keep explaining it's probably never going to make sense.
