Assuming absolutely anything with the name Unger on it must be absolutely hilarious, local man Mr. Falk decided he’d pick up a copy of that Bible dictionary he’d seen kicking around.
“I’ve been reading Herman comics for years? You know Jim Unger? Plus, there’s that Daily Bonnet guy. I think he’s an Unger, too. He’s in the Unger book anyway,” said Mr. Falk. “But, man, this Merrill F. Unger is one serious dude. There’s not a single joke in this entire thing.”
Instead of hilarious commentary about Mennonite life today, Falk found a book full of English meanings of Greek and Hebrew words.
“Wow, so apparently there are four different words for Hell: Sheol, Hades, Gehanna, Tartarus,” said Falk. “Fascinting stuff, but hardly what I’d expect from an Unger.”
Falk was also disappointed that this Unger’s Bible Dictionary didn’t include a single Plautdietsch word, not even “waut de schissjat” or “jauma lied.”
