Once a year the collectors of antique tents in Meinz, Germany get together for a rally. Last year, the organizers decided to hold it in Meinz.
Unfortunately, the local burghers took a dim view of so great an influx of tourists ruining their turf with tent pegs…
The citizens organized themselves in opposition to the rally so thoroughly that they even wrote an anthem for their cause. The anthem began with the following line:
“Let Old and Quaint Tents Be Forgot and Never Brought to Meinz!”
