Playing Wismar last week, we ran into an old 'Legend of the European Streets'.
Jacques Monoet.

https://flic.kr/ps/oNU28

77 years young.
"Cut his first shillouette, before he cut his first tooth.",... that's a quote.
(i believe it.)
Started in Paris, Montmarte,.. Rue de St. Denis,... Brussels, Amsterdamm, London,.
hit the 'big time' in Dusseldorf, Germany.
The Guinees Book of World Records listed him, for cutting 'the most recognizible shillouettes in one hour',... 151.
He cut the German Chancellors' Willi Brandt, Helmut Schmitt,.. then... the 'big time' hit him.
Chancellor Kohl,.. or should I say "god"?, . 1986. Bonn.
On the Streets,..
"Monsieur Kohl, your Portraaait,.. please!"
"Begger,..."
Jacques Monoet, snipped out a large ,... ***,..(middle leg),..... and held it up,.. for all to see,..
including a newpaper journalist.
The next day,.. every news stand in Germany,...
Jacques was chased out of just about everywhere in western Europe.
Cities would shut him down for "creating litter",.. his snippets.
He ended up in a little village in north-eastern Germany,.. Wiren.
He cuts today,.. passionatly,.. telling stories,.. joking,.. complaining,.. and lovingly.
,a good guy.
,giving it easily,
