Trouser bugles.

I wonder if there will ever come a time when I am so blase about staying in hotels that I am no longer delighted by: i) the existence of the trouserpress; ii) the first and last panels in the series of pictures illustrating the use of the trouserpress:

  


...or iii) the fact that the German for trouserpress is apparently 'Hosenb├╝gler'?

I think not.

Nice that the bulky trouser press seems to fold down to fit in your briefcase..... for use about town maybe.

The day I stop being excited by seeing a trouser press in a hotel will be a very sad day indeed... R

It's the mini kettle that gets me.

I have considered buying a mini kettle of my own, but I'm afraid that will take the shine off of hotel stays for me. Some luxuries need to remain luxurious.

As an additional service I notice form the illustration they rotate your trouser ninety degrees clockwise. Very discreet.

Thanks for teaching me a new word of my mother tongue as English has taken over most of my brain in recent years ;-)

This does make me wonder what the word for "hamburger press" is.

Diese ist warum Deutsch ist der beste Sprache in der Welt.

Ross, unfortunately the translation of "hamburger press" is just "Hamburger Presse" - personally, I think "Hamb├╝gler" would be better purely for the weak pun.

Oh, I haven't even been aware of such thing! But I am a poor student after all, sleeping at friend's places and not having any bugles on my trousers ;)

Can't believe you haven't seen Bill Bailey's second Kraftwerk tribute song, featuring Der Hosenbugler. It was on Tinselworm. In fact it is on Youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Mdi69xNXAM&feature=player_detailpage#t=144s
