Those three are wise alas I am not Jan 6, 2006

Mamie, would you care to explain "que son 5: Melchor, Gaspar; Basaltar, Secayó y Selevantó" for the benefit of those with a limited grasp of Spanish? One fell down and one got up? Balthasar turns to basalt? What?

Frohes Dreikönigsfest,
Ricki

Basaltar... Jan 6, 2006

Basaltar is a play on words which sounds like "va saltar" literally meaning "he's going to jump" in English. Then consequently "se cayó" i.e "he fell" and "se levantó" he got up.

Aaah :) Jan 6, 2006

now I get it
BTW there is a German radio play about "der vierte Dreikönig" (the fourth threeking), which shows that "threekings" (or "threewisemen") is so much perceived as one single noun that a fourth threeking is imaginable.
