2. The act of parping. This involves an elaborate and thoroughly unnecessary process that starts with the parper demanding in a high-pitched Prussian accent that the parpee kneel. The would-be executioner then gives a contemptuous snort and removes his pistol, cocks it with another contemptuous snort, twirls the pistol like a cowboy, before bringing the weapon to bear on the victim's head via a windmill type motion. The deed being done, the parper will give yet another snort of contempt, twirl the pistol up to his nose, inhale the smoke, and then cock the pistol again, ejecting a perfectly serviceable round before returning the weapon to his holster with one final contemptuous snort. It must be noted that this process must be repeated for each victim. Typically those who carry out these executions are members of the SS.
