Understanding German – Ausfahrt


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.


1. Garage Exit
2. Highway Exit Ramp
Now of course we Americans giggle like little school girls when we try to say it because invariably it always comes out “Ass Fart”   Again I claim it still works as the gas is exiting from your system through your ass.

    Oh that just fit doesn’t it. I laughed out loud.

    Have a fabulous day. 🙂

    The most important German word is schokolade.

  3. jynksie says:

    It may be pronounced assfart…. but all exits lead to out. [smirk]

  4. Tony McGurk says:

    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?”

  5. Tony McGurk says:

    Love your Bearman in Liederhausens toon. They look a bit tight so beware of an assfart

    “Ass Fart! Just brushing up on my German.”
    Say that at the dinner table. 😉

  7. I 100% didn’t giggle.

    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.

    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.
