   Er nun wieder!
   Von Vegesack bis Titisee
   Auch das noch!

   Da bleibt kein Auge trocken
   Gnadenlos witzig

   Das pralle Leben

Other Information[edit]

Oliver Kalkofe and Fips Asmussen maintain a humorous/eristic rivalry.

Asmussen has accused the entertainer and comedian Dieter Hallervorden several times of using various gags without his consent, such as the famous "bottle of French fries" skit ("Palim-Palim"), which Hallervorden bought for his program from the entertainer Heinz Quermann. This controversy was eventually parodied by Harald Schmidt and Oliver Pocher in the show "Schmidt & Pocher".[2]
