Karl Tellenbach, called "Dällebach Kari", was one of Bern's legendary characters at the beginning of the 20th century. Born with a strong hare lip which left him disfigured and gave his voice a peculiar nasal tone, he devoted his entire life trying to get people to laugh with him instead of at him. Ultimately, his despairing at ever becoming accepted as a fellow man coupled with unrequited love made his life tragic, culminating in his suicide at age 54. His jokes are still well known today.Several cinema movies remember him.Melody:"Dällebach Kari" by Mani Matter.Theatre pieces (Lake of Thun)and in Berne.
He died 31 July 1931(suicide)in Berne and wished his friends at the funeral should sing "Wie die Blümlein leise zittern", his beloved song.
