provides enough insults and swear words to offend every person in Germany without even mentioning that the Japanese make better cars as well as explicit sex terminology graphic enough to embarrass the women of Hamburg's infamous red light district. Also included is a section on native banter that can help readers make friends over a pitcher of beer and convince the local bratwurst vendor that they actually like sauerkraut.
