Jessica is Funny

Jessica just called from New York, with Liz in the background, and asks me (out of the blue, but I can guess why) to put “leni riefenstal” into Google. 599 results. She wants to know if she has the spelling right, a sort of bet from Liz that has to be settled right now. She didn’t. 599 for “leni riefenstal”, 78,000 for “leni reifenstahl”. Jessica now owes Liz a kiss, instead of vice versa.

As an addendum, there’s also the fact that if you misspell it “leni reifenstahl”, you get 1,830. It wasn’t even the popular misspelling.
