If I had not read the Pinkwater books I never would have understood the true meaning of the word “Nettlehorst.”

Daniel replies:

Is it Nettlehorst, or Nettelhorst? Can _you_ hum a few bars, (of the song, ""Nettelhorst, my Nettelhorst)? Is it a mistake to nettle horsts in midstream? Have you ever passed a bar? Had you not had early experiences of Nettlehorst, do you think you would have been a more or less serious person? Explain why. Explain Nettelhorst.
