Which is worse?
A "fat bastard" who is not nominated for an Oscar this year or a "retarded idiot" who is nominated for the golden rasberry? [/cheap shot]

Hey CO, what's the opposite to "lesson"?
I could take Sean Connery in a fight... I could definitely take him.

"Wrong side of the river Elbe" – we know where that is. It's in the area around Hamburg and east, west, south and north of that. Could be Canada.

Well, when talking about the "original" Hamburg - the one where all the Krauts live - "wrong side of the river Elbe" usually refers to folks who live south of the river, which can be considered the "wrong" side for various reasons. Everyone who's been to/lived in HH will know ...

Oh boy, I'm so confused ...

Hey badidea I was looking at your photogalleries and saw you were in Paris pretty much at the exact same time as I was - may 31st 2004 - I stopped there for a few coffees and smokes on my way to Spain.

Your cover is blown you can stop following me now

I live on the right (right) side of the river Elbe but work on the wrong (left) side (the AIRBUS factory)! Yes, that's not Canada!

... and for a second there I thought Señor Obvious was just being his usual prejudiced self when in fact he was being his usual ignorant, prejudiced self. Tsk, tsk, tsk. Btw, calling the Presnit a "retarded idiot" is not right! My parents taught me that it's not appropriate to pick on the handicapped!

Fischkopf!

Oh, I know, that's why I posted it in quotation marks (just like "fat bastard") to show how wrong those kind of threads are...(it is satire)!

Hey brain trust.....http://www.halifaxlive.com

If I had been speaking in the singular it would have been "Stupid Canadian" the noun I used was plural denoting a reference to more than one person: such as a group of people or an organization.

Do you take the ferry across the Elbe. (I nearly typed 'Mersey' there)

I used to live in HH many moons ago. Now I live in Canada. So, maybe there is a connection.

Yeah, I take the ferry every day which is especially nice on a sunny morning with the sun rising behind the large cargo cranes in the harbour!
The only connection to "Canada" () I know of, is a company in Montreal I used to work with!

Nice one. I used to live in Blankenese and drive past the ferry terminal several times a week. It always looked like a really nice way to travel.
Hamburg is a beautiful city, I enjoyed my stay there. The only thing that sucked royally was the weather. Grey, damp, cold winters and grey, damp, cold summers.

Statistically I am also a lot more German than I am American - yet I still love the word "Kraut".

Last time I checked there weren't any Bavarians in my house (maybe I should check the the basement and the closets again?). Not too sure about Schwaben though - word has it that they're sneaky bastards and kinda hard to find (as long as they're not talking, that is.)

Es is kaa Stadt uff der weite Welt, die so merr wie mei Frankfort gefällt,
un es will merr net in mein Kopp enei, wie kann nor e Mensch net von Frankfort sei!

Un wär´sch e Engel un Sonnekalb, e Fremder is immer von außerhalb!
Der beste Mensch is e Ärjerniß, wann er net aach von Frankfort is.

Was is des Ofebach for e Stadt! Die hawe´s ganz in der Näh gehat
un hawe´s verbaßt von Aabeginn, daß se net aach von Frankfort sin.

Die Bockemer hawe weiter geblickt, die hawe mit uns zusammegerickt;
die Bernemer awer warn aach net dumm, die gawe sogar e Milljon dadrum!

E Mädche von hie, deß en Fremde nimmt, deß hat en for was Höher´sch bestimmt;
es mecht en von Hie, un er waaß net wie, e Eigeplackter is immer von hie.

E Mädche von drauß, wann noch so fei, dut immer doch net von Frankfort sei!
Doch nimmt se en hiesige Berjerschsoh, so hat se aach noch die Ehr derrvo.

Des Berjerrecht in den letzte Jahrn is freilich ebbes billiger warn;
der Wohlstadt awwer erhält sich doch, dann alles anner is deuer noch.

So steuern merr frehlich uff´s Tornerfest! Bald komme se aa von Ost und West,
von Nord un Sid un iwwer die Meern: Gut Heil! als ob se von Frankfort wärn.

Un wann se bei uns sich amesiern, dann werrd se der Abschied doppelt rihrn
un gewe merr recht un stimme mit ei: wie kann nor e Mensch net von Frankfort sei!

P.S. shouldn't "doppelt" in Hessisch be "dobbelt" as in "Äbbelwoi"?

While I would say "Ebblwoi" I would have said "doppelt" in this context as well. Don't ask me why. I think the lack of hard consonants is more typical for Saxony (my father was from Saxony and when he was spelling words with P he was always saying "mit haddem B" und we were laughing our butts off *) ).

no offence intended, he was a great man.

Or the classic:

Was war das meistgesprochene Wort der Deutsch-Deutschen-Grenze?

Gänsefleisch.

"Genn' Se 'fleisch ma'n Gofferraum aufmach'n?"


(an acoustic joke – loses when written down)

Ah, isn't that great? As Swabian and Hessian we detest each other, but if we can talk about Saxony we can drink wine together again!

I'm taking German in high school this year. We had to memorize poems for some regional German poetry contest (which I won, of course). So to insult all of you losers:

Du bist wie eine Blume
So hold und schön un rein
Ich schaue dich an und wehmut
Schleicht mir ins herz hinein.

Mir ist als ob ich die Hände
Aufs haupt dir legen sollt
Betend, das Gott dich erhalte
So rein, und schön un hold.

Eat that, **** heads.
