I do occasionally look at the German forum to see how much I can understand. The answer is; not enough!

It's a constant source of shame that most Europeans speak enough English to hold a conversation, but I can hardly string three words together in any other language.

You must be kidding! I like the English a LOT, but no, that's not beer you guys are drinking.

There's no accounting for taste, eh?

Absolutely

Here's a relevant quote from Robert Rankin's Retromancer:

Quote:
‘What is this?’ I so enquired, as I viewed the plate before me. The gas-ring goddess smiled down at my person between her bounteous bosoms.
And said the word, ‘Bratwurst.’

‘Bratwurst?’ I queried.

‘Bratwurst,’ she confirmed. ‘The very Führer of the sausage world. Pork and veal, with salt and pepper, nutmeg, parsley, marjoram, celery seed and ginger.’

‘That sounds appalling,’ was my opinion. ‘Whatever happened to the usual bacon and eggs? And English sausages? And black pudding? And the fried slice? And—’


Ok, I'll go back on topic now, don't shout!

Go Germany! Go England! Go Korea! Go Portugal!

That has to do with our traditional MR polls...

I could modify it to WD40! If you wish?

let's just agree that the Greek have great wine and Gyros!

BTW, I'm a bit disappointed. I would have exected a bit more from the French team. Game against Uruguay ended 0:0.

AHA! Finally, here he is again, our referee from Canada. Still supporting the wrong teams though, tsk, tsk What did you think of France - Uruguay?

Terrible. Scrappy. Unsurprising. Totally un-French.

Uruguy impressed me though. Good marking and defending. Needed a little more power forward...

That covers it, unfortunately. I want Monsieur Zidane back (even though he had his weird moments).

USA - although it more of a hope than sort assurance.

If I didn't suck at photo shop I'd dress Marvin in the appropriate gear.

I'm still undecided, but with this tricolour hair-do the groomer gave me I might not have a choice.
