Summer time is airshow time! So we thought we’d dig out this classic strip for you. By the way, is it “airshow” or “air show”? Or can you say both? As a native German speaker, I tend to form long combinations of words, while in English the tendency goes towards putting words in a row but keeping them separate. It’s probably a common mistake of mine. I think the German way makes it easier to identify which words actually belong together and form a term. But on the other hand, in extreme cases it can lead to words like “Rind­fleisch­eti­ket­tie­rungs­über­wa­chungs­auf­ga­ben­über­tra­gungs­ge­setz” (which is officially the longest German word) or “Donaudampfschifffahrtsgesellschaftskapitän”.

Anyway, hope you’re having a nice and sunny summer day like I do! And I hope you don’t have to spend it painting your garden fence, like I do.
