Well it's supposed to be humourous!

It's supposed to make the germans laugh not cringe.

tell her
Entschuldigen! or is it Gesundheit?

Nochmal Eins! that's a good one.

And tell her my fave word in all of Germany is.......... Zapfenstreich! Love it!

Nowthen - Ich Brauche Eine Pauser!!!!!!

But to be serious - Here is my favourite piece of german Poetry.

Des Menschen Seele
Gleicht dem Wasser:
Vom Himmel kommt es,
Zum Himmel steigt es,
Und wieder nieder
Zur Erde muß es.
Ewig wechselnd.

Strömt von der hohen,
Steilen Felsenwand
Der reine Strahl,
Dann stäubt er lieblich
In Wolkenwellen
Zum glatten Fels,

Und, leicht empfangen,
Wallt er verschleiernd,
Leisrauschend
Zur Tiefe nieder.
Ragen Klippen
Dem Sturz entgegen,
Schäumt er unmutig
Stufenweise
Zum Abgrund.

Im flachen Bette
Schleicht er das Wiesental hin,
Und in dem glatten See
Weiden ihr Antlitz
Alle Gestirne.

Wind ist der Welle
Lieblicher Buhler;
Wind rauscht von Grund aus
Schäumende Wogen.

Seele des Menschen
Wie gleichst du dem Wasser!
Schicksal des Menschen,
Wie gleichst du dem Wind!

I'd like the first verse as my epitaph.

And here was I thinking PD knew what he was talking about...! :rofl:

I got "U" for my German O-level. :oops: You can only imagine how humiliating the oral exam was - my most frequent reply to the examiner's questions was, "Wie, bitte?" :roll:

Still, being brought up on Warlord comic and Commando books, I've got a few good stock phrases in hand.

It's a pity you didn't cover those in your German classes. With hindsight those are the only phrases that have been any use to you in future life, you really should have got that O level.

Possibly shouting, "Achtung! Spitfire!!" was the defining moment of the oral exam...
