I like these ones better!
Check out the "customer reviews"! :-)

Heute wollte ich einen scheinbar harmlosen Aufklärungsbeitrag der Onlineausgabe des Spiegels über korrektes Formulieren von E-Mails lesen und was springt einem da ins Auge? Subversiver Antiamerikanismus vom Feinsten.

https://www.spiegel.de/kultur/zwiebelfisch/0,1518,347956,00.html :
"Wir leben nicht in den intellektuell unterentwickelten USA, wir brauchen diese penetrante Form der Dauer-Belehrung nicht."

Wer belehrt denn hier wen?

Glückwunsch, S|Z, sie haben es abgeändert, jetzt steht dort nur noch

"Wir leben nicht in den USA, wir brauchen diese penetrante Form der Dauer-Belehrung nicht."

Dunno, the "68er" looks a bit like the great mastering engineer Steve Hoffman.

haw haw comedy gold.

better than german "scheisse porn"

"Glückwunsch, S|Z, sie haben es abgeändert, jetzt steht dort nur noch"

Yeah, but the meaning of the idiotic statement hasn't changed much. I think this is the 3rd time this month that SPON has been influenced to make changes in their articles because of anti-american comments. Thanks, of course, to "Medienkritik" and their readers.

Perhaps it's SPON that needs a "penetrante Form der Dauer-Belehrung"--like lots of "no more anti-american propaganda" e-mails!

Very funny post. I really enjoyed it especially the one with socks. As an American who lived in Germany for 8 years (in the Army) and still visit my German wifes family, I always wondered what style represents a typical German. I have a hobby of people watching and I pride my self on being able to determine someone's nationality based on the style of clothes. The dark socks with sandals and shorts is always a dead give-away that the person is German. I live in Arizona now and I can spot them from a mile away at the tourist spots.

One of us two forgot the irony tags, I guess. :-)
