The Good Soldier Švejk NOW IN FACEBOOK

Having the funny mark over the "S" in my name, Švejk, means that people who are looking for "Svejk" or "Schweik", or some other mongrel mutant of my name won't find my page in Facebook. That way, I won't be bothered by journalists, who otherwise would be begging me for an interview, as you know. And, there is always some war - hot war, cold war, trade war, turf war, war of words, or some other kind war going on and I've done my bit for the Lord Emperor a few times already, pulling the chestnuts out of the fire for him. I dutifully report, I have to go now, but, should you run into my old buddy Vodička, tell him I've been sitting at the pub since six o'clock after the war, as originally promised, not since six thirty, as we agreed, but he hasn't shown up yet.

P.S.: If you can't keep this page a secret, make sure you keep it at least away from Colonel Bedřich Kraus von Zillergut. It is really amazing that such an idiot was able to advance relatively quickly. He had very influential people behind him. His sponsor, a commanding general, always kept his fingers crossed because he knew of von Zillergut’s total military incompetence.
