Ok, this post is mainly directed at Leah, but as I am immensely generous today, all others may also read and even comment! *lol* Oh my, I am so generous!
I do not really know how I found this, but the following lines are German comedy and jokes translated into English.
Yes, there are not many examples as most of it gets lost in translation, but I thought I'd rather share only a few than none.
So, enjoy the following examples:
1) "Fritzchen and his grandma walk along the pavement. Fritzchen finds a 10 Pfennig coin, but his grandma intervenes: "No, don't pick up anything lying on the ground!" Soon afterwards Fritzchen finds a 10 Mark note, but again his grandma says "No, don't pick up anything lying on the ground!" Soon there is a banana lying on the pavement, grandma steps on it and slips over. "Help me, Fritzchen!", she cries, but Fritzchen says: "No, don't pick up anything lying on the ground!""
2) "The United Nations initiated a poll with the request, "Please tell us your honest opinion about the lack of food in the rest of the world." The poll was a total failure. The Russians did not understand "Please". The Italians did not know the word "honest". The Chinese did not know what an "opinion" was. The French did not know "lack", while the Africans did not know "food". Finally, the Americans didn't know anything about the "rest of the world"."
3) How many Frisians does it take to screw in a light bulb? Five! One to hold the bulb and four to turn the table he's standing on.
4) At night it's colder than outside
[Yes, that is it!]
Thanks to Wikipedia for not having ME to translate all this *lol*
