Sprechen Sie Dirty Deutsch?
If you think German is all brat and no wurst, you need to think again. German is sexier?and dirtier?than you might imagine. (Think Hamburg ) From hearts and violins to pigs and dogs, Goethe's native tongue is ripe?and rank?with creative obscenities, including:
Kuck mal diese geile Schnitte
Look at that sexy chick
Literal translation: Look at that sexy slice
Alle wissen dass Klaus sehr gut geigt
.Everyone knows Klaus f**ks well.
Literal translation: Everyone knows Klaus plays the violin well.
Markus, du bist ein verdammter Schweinehund.
Markus, you?re a f**king moron.
Literal translation: Markus, you are a damned pig dog.
In this book, you receive a basic introduction into the netherworlds (and nether regions) of the true Jargon. Whether seducing a M?dchen in M?nchen or a Kerl in K?ln, this gritty linguistic guide is all you need to know to talk dirty the German way.
