Mein Vater ist supertoll!

Recently, trying to promote a little Vater-Tochter bonding, I decided that I was going to attempt to write my pops an e-mail auf Deutsch. My skillz ain't that great, so this was a chore, and I cringed to think of poor Karl-Heinz (ja, er heißt Karl-Heinz. Natürlich!) struggling through my terrible grammar and shaking his Germanic head in despair.

Days passed. Then today I opened my e-mail inbox and found this:

My father, earnest and hardworking German that he is, printed out my e-mail, corrected it, scanned it, and sent it back to me as a pdf file!

On a somewhat related note, this is awesome:
