Ernst sein

Every friday the austrian newspaper ‘Der Standard‘ has an insert called 'Rondo'. This friday there was a very nice article about our friend Ernst.
For those of you who don't speak german the headline 'Ernst sein' has two meanings.
It can mean 'to be Ernst' or it means 'not to be funny' and that in fact isn't the strength of Mr. Bernsteiner.
