33 Summary and Conclusions

34 Ode an das Akronym

35 Summary and Conclusions Ode an das Akronym Wie herrlich ist es, ein Projekt zu planen, sodann zu leiten auf kühne Bahnen,

36 Summary and Conclusions Ode an das Akronym Wie herrlich ist es, ein Projekt zu planen, sodann zu leiten auf kühne Bahnen, sich nie zu kümmern um Budget und Zahlen, stattdessen visionär voranzustrahlen.

37 Summary and Conclusions Ode an das Akronym Wie herrlich ist es, ein Projekt zu planen, sodann zu leiten auf kühne Bahnen, sich nie zu kümmern um Budget und Zahlen, stattdessen visionär voranzustrahlen. O Kohle mio, du kommst daher von ganz alleine und ohn‘ Beschwer; o Kohle, o Kohle mio, nur Akronyme, es braucht nicht mehr.

38 BACCARDI, CHIANTI, WISQY, CAIPIRINA, und auch CAMPARI brachten viel Gewinn, ja!

39 BACCARDI, CHIANTI, WISQY, CAIPIRINA, und auch CAMPARI brachten viel Gewinn, ja! MARIUANA…? Man muss nicht viel wagen, um umso mehr Budget davonzutragen.

40 BACCARDI, CHIANTI, WISQY, CAIPIRINA, und auch CAMPARI brachten viel Gewinn, ja! MARIUANA…? Man muss nicht viel wagen, um umso mehr Budget davonzutragen. O Kohle mio, vorbei der Stress der Antragsstellung: wie man bemess‘ die Kohle für das Projekt, das man so mühsam da ausgeheckt.

41 BACCARDI, CHIANTI, WISQY, CAIPIRINA, und auch CAMPARI brachten viel Gewinn, ja! MARIUANA…? Man muss nicht viel wagen, um umso mehr Budget davonzutragen. O Kohle mio, vorbei der Stress der Antragsstellung: wie man bemess‘ die Kohle für das Projekt, das man so mühsam da ausgeheckt. O Kohle mio, du kommst daher von ganz alleine, ’s ist nicht so schwer; o Kohle, o Kohle mio: die Akronyme, die helfen sehr.
