My Favorite Leonard Nimoy Story

Once, on meeting Leonard Nimoy and his wife, I was gratified to find literate they are. He advised me on the pronunciation of some words in the expression Alle Kunst ist umsunst Wenn ein Engel auf das Zundloch brunzt (which covers a multitude of sins and means something like: all skill is in vain if an angel pisses down the touch-hole of your musket).
