The 3 "***" in the novel´s title are due to the fact that the word "aß" (engl.: "ate") equals the other word for one´s "bottom" in English if spelled with double "s" (a_s_s_). GEH parental advisory bot marked it out, but it´s completely harmless. :-)

If you would have used the correct title ("Wer einmal aus dem Blechnapf frißt"*), no *** would appear ;)

*Same meaning....

Verdammt! Da will man schon bißchen intellel rüberkommen und dann DAS! Du hast vollkommen recht.

In English: He´s absolutely right. From now on I will quote the title correctly (especially since I visit that prison 2-3 times a week...)
This is what happens in the heat of the battle (e.g. "rapidly creating .kmz" with this wonderful program for this excellent site)
