Intentional Genius

Tool’s second album Ænema has a track titled Die Eier Von Satan (Balls Of Satan) that sounds like Nazi propaganda to the ignorant but is just a recipe for hash cookies. Check out the lyrics and video below.

GERMAN

Die Eier Von Satan

Eine halbe Tasse Staubzucker

Ein Viertel Teelöffel Salz

Eine Messerspitze türkisches Haschisch

Ein halbes Pfund Butter

Ein Teelöffel Vanillenzucker

Ein halbes Pfund Mehl

Einhundertfünfzig Gramm gemahlene Nüsse

Ein wenig extra Staubzucker

… und keine Eier

 

In eine Schüssel geben

Butter einrühren

Gemahlene Nüsse zugeben und

Den Teig verkneten

 

Augenballgroße Stücke vom Teig formen

Im Staubzucker walzen und

Sagt die Zauberwörter

Simsalbimbamba Saladu Saladim

 

Auf ein gefettetes Backblech legen und

Bei zweihundert Grad für fünfzehn Minuten backen und

KEINE EIER
