    I don't know why I can't edit anything now. I guess I'll bump:

    The jury, made up of linguists and language experts, defined the vital word as a “public outcry, primarily on the Internet, in which arguments mix with threats and insults to reach a critical mass, forcing a reaction.”

    WOW! Long time ago I read that old german WCs were different from the french standar. In the french style WC, shit does a free fall dive into the water.

    In the german style, you have a more close relation with your shit

    German doctors said it is a good habit take a look to your own shit, in order to detect possible illness.

    I read all this crap in a book called -Fear to fly- (american author, sociology... )......The author tries to correlate german WCs with the Nazi Germany's plan called -The Final Solution-.

    Obviously if you are talking about foreigners that suck, the French are way worse than the Germans...

    As Neologisms go I like shitstorm, though my fave from the last 2 years has been 'Clusterfuck.' Great word, and I suspect American in origin..

    Clusterfuck is American military slang. NATO abbreviation: Charlie Foxtrot.

    Actually I love the Germans and the wording of the topic is solely meant to spoof similarly titled threads. I can't get enough bratwurst inside me, and during winter, I wear a dirty old KMFDM everywhere I go. And y'know what, the French ain't so bad neither; that hat is a tuque. I fucking love the Europes and I look to her peoples in Beijing for examples of behavior which--if I am ever beckoned home--I might mimic in order to upset the rednecks. GOOD TIMES HARMONIOUS CULTURAL EXCHANGE

    Too much love for an early morning.

    Baguette sure can be irritating, but we match it with a berret and a moustache and that make us incredibly sexy.

    Gheng try to be nice to us and I'm sure you'll learn a way to enjoy our baguette.

    And he was nervous about this happening to him in public so he awkwardly put his hands in his pockets which happened to be full of spaghetti and just hastily got on the bus, and then when he got to school it was (surprise) anus inspection day. He says "NO" but the nurse pulls his pants down and the poopy baguette slides out of his butt and the spaghetti falls out of his pocket and the smells of old bolognese sauce and shit and croutons and everybody vomits everywhere and the nurse slips on the vomit and vomit gets all over her vagina and nine months later she gives birth to puppies with Cheng's face.
