I'm shocked and surprised that Kar didn't share the German word for breasts and it's exact translation.


Also, AG, word to the wise, take with a grain of salt any German greetings Kar tries to impart. He once tried to get me to say to my mechanic, "Hans, du alte luftpumpe, wie geht's es heute?"

Translation, "Hans you old airpump, how goes it today?"


Goudron Jr. was in Germany at a homestay, and his homestay buddy taught him to say "I have no idea" in German. Goudron Jr. knew a little German, but not enough to know he was saying "I have no balls" whenever he couldn't follow the conversation. The English language teacher let him in on the joke.

PS. Rammstein, like the mullet, is timeless.

I learned the German phrase as "Ich habe keine Idee."

Never knew what I was saying, I guess...

Damn American German teachers and their lack of colloquialisms.
