The Bakicarus

Sell your Soul to the Baker
  [vote for,

The Bakicarus (1435) gives the earliest if not the most complete description of what happens when making a Pact with the Baker. Supplied with friends who have already forsworn woiking, the applicant arrives at the 'bakery on a Monday morning very early and renounces Woik and the One, Stifling, and Demanding Boss. S/he pays homage to the Baker, drinks the blood of sacrificed children 'bakers, and subscribes to the rules of the 'baked, which cover many things from diet to surfing and googling. S/he expresses the desire to trade his soul for one or more favors from The Baking One, often croissants or custard for a specified number of years.
(_!_): "ß" is pronounced "ss". Use it wisparingly, or you'll have to cover your aß later, like my elf.

       Yeah, but that isn't German enough.

       I used to have a German shepherd. Everybody stared when he raised a hind leg: "ßßßßßßßßßßßßßßßßßß"
