Having never been exposed to much German except for a few bars of Wayne Newton’s Danke Schoen (thanks Ferris Bueller – you are a righteous dude), I was pleasantly surprised at all the words I found funny traveling the last few weeks in Europe. So today I give you the first German word that might need translation for those of us not so up on our Germanic languages.
Oh that just fit doesn’t it. I laughed out loud.
Have a fabulous day. 🙂
Thanks Sandee…you too
The most important German word is schokolade.
Probably means something I don’t like
Und Wine Gums. It’s the same in both languages.
It may be pronounced assfart…. but all exits lead to out. [smirk]
ASSFART sounds good to me. I can imagine being lost in a huge shopping mall car park/parking lot & saying to someone “Where’s the assfart?”
Better than being an asshole I guess
Love your Bearman in Liederhausens toon. They look a bit tight so beware of an assfart
I got the body to pull it off
That helps. Not long after I posted my comment there was an ad on TV saying to dust off your Liederhausens for Octoberfest in a couple of months. How did they know I commented about Liederhausens??? eerie stuff…
We are watching you
“Ass Fart! Just brushing up on my German.”
Say that at the dinner table. 😉
Say it? I just do it.
I 100% didn’t giggle.
Then you must be German
Aus sounds like ous and fahrt sounds more like fot… so when I see it all I hear is OUS FOT.
I remember when I was first in language class, we were taking turns in a row and I swear I always got the word fahrt in my sentence. I felt so embarrassed.
Another word you won’t see much but will hear is “damit” and nope it’s not cussing but sure as light sounds like it.
Oh, and then there is the word “hell” it means light.
So if you need someone to go to the light you say “Go to Hell”?
Go straight to hell! Then take a left.
I always go right
I took German in high school but don’t remember much. I like flughafen.
I read that Irish Mist had to be relabeled in Germany because “mist” sounded like their word for shit.
its shit no matter how you say it.
