„Allt/dagsironien nicht nur im Waschsalon / nich bloot in de Waschstuuv“ (Every days irony - not just in the washing saloon) has been reviewed by the press as well. The text is written in High and Low German. The Low German bit was written by Spiekerbaas Rita Kropp.
Ironizied are topics like holidays, shopping, diet, sports. For the special athmosphere the storys are sometimes set at a washing saloon, where Erika and Libseth, the two protagonists do anything, but washing.
