Helau is the word used for greeting people in Düsseldorf during die fünfte Jahreszeit. Cheery and slur-proof, people love to sing it out, arms raised in the direction of their exhortation. As a bonus, it is even easy to remember... although maybe that is because there's a few hundred years of practice behind the only slightly vowel-modified... Hallo.

willie wonka wants you to have this beer

candy may be dandy, but liquor sure is quicker

watch out for willie's cane

and the lord's best intentions...

that's me in the middle, the beneficiary of willie's beer
