Wanna hear a funny story?
It is said that Beethoven always wanted 10 eggs to his breadsoup on fastday. And when served the raw eggs for his soup he made a fuss and was checking them vigorously. Holding them up against the sun, smelling them, looking for cracks - and if he didn't like them - well - listen to the video :)
Did you know that Beethoven sometimes looked so scruffy that one time he was mistaken for a vagabond and taken into custody by the police? :)
