When you are really angry, there is nothing like swearing in German

Filed under: Germany, Language — furtherglory @ 11:59 am

Go to this website to learn to swear in German:

When you are swearing in Germany, it is O.K. to have some spit coming out of your mouth that lands on the face of your enemy.


  1. It’s missing some classics like:

    Hat dir jemand ins Gehirn geschissen?
    Hat man dir ins Gehirn geschissen?

    Some variations of it are there though.

    Didn’t look at it all but if they don’t have this it’s a shame too:

    Herr, wirf Hirn vom Himmel oder Steine Hauptsache Er trifft!

    ..not translating these, anyone who wants to know can do so themselves if they don’t know. I have other things I need to do.

  2. You seem to forget, Eichmann did an interview with fellow Nazi William Sassen in Argentina in 1957.
    In the interview, Eichmann admits to the Final Solution ordered by Hitler, the gas chambers, the mass deportations, and the mass murders of Jews.
    You cant use the British forced Eichmann to say this like the Holocaust deniers try to do with Rudolf Hoess.
    Life magazine got a copy of the Eichmann interview in Argentina and published it in 1960.
    Good article about this.

  3. “Okay to spit on person you’re cussing at “. I guess ,”say it,don’t spray it” has become defunct.

        Off the topic:
        I came across hermie’s visit to Berlin in 2017 and his method of explaining the German Unlaut System.

        As usual the Armchair Professor of history seldom gets anything swldom correct:
        Basically the noun UMLaUT means – change of sound in German. Anyone who wants to use the appropriate letter can do the following;

        Windows PCs

        On Windows PCs, enable “Num Lock.” Hold down the “Alt” key while typing the appropriate number code on the numeric keypad to create characters with umlaut marks.

        If you do not have a numeric keypad on the right side of your keyboard, these numeric codes will not work. The row of numbers at the top of the keyboard, above the alphabet, will not work for numeric codes.

        Numeric codes for upper-case letters with an Umlaut

        Ä= Alt + 0196
        Ë= Alt + 0203 (foreign language)
        Ï= Alt + 0207 (foreign language)
        Ö= Alt + 0214
        Ü= Alt + 0220
        Ÿ= Alt + 0159 (foreign language)

        Numeric codes for lower-case letters with an Umlaut:

        ä= Alt + 0235

        ö= Alt + 0246
        ü= Alt + 0252

        The two dots used in other languages
        ë= Alt + 0235
        ï= Alt + 0239
        ÿ= Alt + 0255
        As a by note sound changes also apply when speaking Germain in nouns with; ai -eu – äu.
        Umlaut is a noun thus written with a capital letter -trust this is helpful.

          Too bad you patently do not even intend to explain how I was wrong about the Umlaut.

          Almost a real argument this time. That was so close. Don’t lose faith, Shiksa Boy…
