Just like Wicked French but this one teaches you how to be rude in German. Everything sounds meaner in German. :)

Hundreds of phrases a traveller might use in Deutschland, e.g:

"We seek a golden ring/ your head on a platter/ a couple of cold beers." (translation to the right)

"I requested an automobile, not a golf cart."

"I'll have your hazelnuts in a vise, my friend".

"Yes, I am/an anarchist/the Antichrist/an American".


A precious vade mecum for shirt pocket.

A very funny book.

Nothing truly obscene; just obnoxious wisecracks for all occasions. Given the differences between German and American temperaments, though, I wouldn't recommend "field testing" the material -- unless you're a *very* competent brawler.

This teaches you all the important German phrases, like "Ja, ich wurde dir gerne in der Dammerung die Nase abschneiden." (Yes, I would be happy to cut off your nose at dawn.)
