My friend N.M. says that, whenever she hears anybody speaking German, no matter what they’re actually saying, she thinks they’re saying, “Jews, get on the train.”
After a depressing day nothing peps me up like your blog, Faustus! Even the one liners are way too cool.
Ich habe ein Kopfschmertz.
Sounds like any one of a number of my family members.
Maybe she should learn German.
I always think George Bush is saying, “Fags, get on the train,” even when he’s talking about something else.
One of the only phrases I know in German, even after my father tried to beat it into me…um, is: “An wo sind alle meine Hunde?” Ghetto fab translation: “Where all my dogs at?”But even that sounds like “Jews. get on the train”.
Ich liebe dich, mein Schatz!
Kinda when people look at me, I felt I just came out of a sweat shop.
Thank you 🙁
These simple things make me laugh.
That sounds like a song from the worst musical ever.

Get on the train! (Epstein, Morstein, Weistein, Einstein)Get on the train! (Liebowitz, Malawitz, Sebowitz, Malcovich)You don’t need a ticketCos you don’t get a seatto get on this train!
Er. Maybe that’s why you’re the talented songwriter, and I’m just the reader.
Sadly, yeah, I know how it is. I spent some time in Germany and really enjoyed it- the food, the land, the people were all terrific. But yes. Yes. Standing in the train station, waiting, all I could think of was all the WW2 movies I’ve ever seen. In the airport, too.
