I found all these postcard images on
this Wikipedia page. I had to run the descriptions – which were in German – through Google Translate, which explains the choppy translation. Regardless, the images and stories behind them are still hilarious.
Once Munchausen rode in deep winter night inland , was tired and tied his horse to a pointed stick. After a deep sleep , he woke up in the bright morning in the middle of the cemetery , while his horse was tethered at the Steeple. In the evening the village was in fact been snowed in and melted together on the night of snow . The tree Plug , whom he believed to tie his horse had been the weathercock . Then he took out his gun , shot through the halter of the horse and was able to continue his journey at a gallop .
Munchausen Master Reinicke looked at a tree trunk on a fox hunt . He pulled his ball out of the shotgun and invited a board nail , fired and hit the tail of the fox . He nailed the animal firmly on the tree . He made the fox is a section through the face , whipped up to him , and this jumped out of his fur .
On a stag hunt Munchausen were once run out of bullets and was already the most beautiful deer in front of him . Then he took a handful of cherry stones , and shot them to the animal on his forehead . Two years later he met on the hunt a capital deer who carried between its antlers a cherry tree with beautiful red berries . With one shot he felled him and so had venison and Kirschtunke.
In a battle with the Turks Munchausen had fought at the forefront and pursued the enemy to the market square of a small town . His horse rushed to the well, and drank an inordinate amount . As he looked around , he noticed that his animals in combat throughout the buttock was cut off , and the water ran out the back again . Outside the city , however , he found the other half of the wonder horse and a Kurschmied pinned the animal back together .
On another expedition Munchausen wanted to ride on a swamp , but got so deep into it that he would have perished . Through the strength of his own arm he retired on Bunches and the animal , wedged between his knees , out of the morass out .
At the siege of a city , one should inquire what was going on in the fortress . Munchausen stood next to a cannon and jumped on the plane fired bullet . From the air out he looked at the fortress and jumped , as just a ball of the fortress was shot and flew past him on this over . So he got safely back to the camp of his people .
As Munchausen was in Turkish captivity , he came again with bears in battle . He flung his silver ax after them . But she flew into the air and fell on the moon . And immediately he planted a Turkish bean up grew rapidly until they entwined on a horn of the moon . Munchausen climbed to the moon and brought his ax . Since the sun had dried up but the bean , he had repeatedly cut off a piece of the slipping and tie down .
During his Turkish captivity Munchausen had to maintain the bees . The Bears sought but after the honey . He therefore bestricht the pole of a wagon with honey . During the night a bear came and began to lick , until the whole tiller went through throat , stomach and abdomen . When she looked back , Munchausen put a large nail through the bar and had caught the bear . Dre Grand Sultan had to laugh almost to death about it .
In a severe Russian winter of Postillon von Munchausen could not signal to blow on his horn . As they sat on the kitchen fire , it sounded at once : Tereng ! tereng ! teng ! teng ! The sounds were outside in the Horn frozen , and now came the thaw splendidly heard. Entire songs and marches sounded from the horn.
On a sea voyage Munchausen came to the island of Ceylon . Set on the banks of a raging river , he was surprised by a huge lion . When he tried to escape , he saw before him a crocodile which unlocked its jaws to devour him . Fright he fell stunned to the ground . When he looked up again , was the lion that losstürzte on Munchausen , jumped into the jaws of the monster . Now Munchausen could both succumbed .
On another occasion, fortified Munchausen to catch a piece of bacon on his leash ducks . Soon a duck swallowed the fat lumps together a leash . This was very soon out undigested back and already grabbed another duck afterwards . Finally Munchausen had a dozen on his leash . This he tied around his waist . When the animals flapped their wings , they wore Munchausen over the city . He expressed a duck after another his head and landed up the chimney in his house .
