Since I've received a not politely accepting the shipment:

( I dare you to read this aloud to someone *v*)

Oberst Pfennighalter: a man of great, compounded interests, usually organizes improved
militia units into reserve units, has accompanied the shipment of Frankszonian barrels and kegs (which were NOT, btw, empty when they set out) to act as initial diplomatic contact.
He prepares his peroration

“Princes and Premiers and your pulchritudinous ladies;
Frankszonia is proud to present these presents as appropriate for producers of products similar to ours. The production of premium potables is a principle part of the prosperity of Deutschland.
Our purpose here is to permeate our relationship with fellowship that we may join in mutual prohibition of the production putrid, poorly compacted products such as was rumored to pervade Frankszonian bratwurst recently. The prevarications of pernicious people aside, those inferior products were but a pimple in our program and were prepared by petty criminals posing as great entrepreneurs. We spit upon them, and proudly present these more perfect specimens of our craft.
Just as those profligate poseurs have been exposed and proscribed, we sincerely hope that these proffered gifts will be planks to bridge our two free states into profitable partnership. “
