ranking fruit names (german)

selected fruits (bc they have the more german-german names, u know, not a… basically generic name like kiwi etc):
Apfel, Birne, Pfirsich, Banane, Erdbeere, Johannisbeere, Pflaume, Dattel, Himbeere, Ananas, Trauben, Limette, Zitrone, Orange/Apfelsine

i rank the name not the taste! 

Apfel (apple): very basic name, not at all fancy but the “pf” is a nice touch. i give it…. a 3.8/10

Birne (pear): a good name! used in various phrases as well, eg: “sich die Birne anschlagen” (to hit ya head), “Glühbirne” (lightbulb), i give it 5.9/10, a good name for a pear shaped fruit

Pfirsich (peach): Pfirsich, or as the southern would call it: Pfirschig. quite tricky with the “s” and the “ch”, gives the whole name an air of fanciness. 7.5/10

Banane (banana): BORING! 1/10

Erdbeere (strawberry): an earth berry? no thankx, eat ya own dirt, 1.2/10

Johannisbeere (currant): whomst is this Johannis and how do i meet him? 6/10

Pflaume (plum): the most wholesome name!!!!! tbh!!!! Pflaume sound so round. so juicy. 10/10. famous namebearers: Kai Pflaume

Dattel (date): i do not like the name of this fruit :/ Dattel…. not a good name. not a good name. at most a 2/10

Himbeere (raspberry): who is HE, who is HIM? anti feminist icon Himbeere 0/10

Ananas (pineapple): a nice name. has produced this 1 iconic joke: 
Was wird aus Anna im Regen? (What becometh of Anna in the Raineth?)
–> Ananas aka Anna nass (Anna wet)
iconic, 10/10

Trauben (grapes): 1 grape is not 1 Traube. 1 grape is 1 Weinbeere. 1 Traube is 1 whole buncha grapes. but the word Trauben? i like it, 7.7/10

Limette (lime): a good fucking name! fancy! i give Limette a wholesome 10/10 and on the fancy scala a 6/10

Zitrone (lemon): those yellow fuckers. theyre like bananas but evil. the name is nice tho, i really enjoy the “Z” because it makes it fancy. a wholesome 8/10

Orange/Apfelsine (orange): technically, a basic name. Orange. but Apfelsine? which basically (is dutch i think????? dont quote) means Apfel aus China (apple from china) and that gives the thing a whole other dimension tbh, 7.9/10

puppy jihoon getting friendly with the eel but mostly just with jonghyun

bonus:

about nu’est

after pd101 is finished i want nu’est to get an instant and enduring all-kill with their comeback album—and the album after that, and after that, and so on forever. i want these boys to be emotional when they get their 1st place trophies, remembering all the thorns it took to reach their roses. i want these kids to get endorsement deals and shoot embarrassing chicken CFs and have hallways full of doors burst open for them.

i want minhyun to sing osts and feature in a bunch of songs and go out on king of masked singer, have his voice praised

and i want minki to be a new force in variety shows and have endearing sns interactions with jo kwon and also halfway across the globe i want lady gaga to see his fanboy videos and blush

and i want dongho to be a guest idol on law of the jungle so we can get scenes depicting him as a tiger like he’s king of the wild just before it cuts to him cringing away from smaller-than-life insects that catch him off guard

and jonghyun. fuck i want so much for this kid. i want him to be able to breathe easy like that old weight is finally off his chest. i want him to feel like he exceeded in everything he promised as a leader. i want pledis to treat him with all the respect and seniority and loyalty he deserves because he’s been with them since the beginning when they didn’t even have enough money to feed him decent meals so how dare they use sales numbers now as a justification to threaten his dreams to an end. whether with nu’est as a whole or by himself via at least a solo digital single i want jonghyun to release more hip hop/rap material and through that experience, if he’s willing to, i want him to revisit that dark, gritty, painfully scarred and lonely place inside of himself that we only saw a glimpse of in his fear/겁 performance. let his lyrics be cathartic. let him get it all out and let him be overwhelmingly consoled.

simply put, i really want this team to do well.
