I was minding my own business, preparing my expense report when I took a look at one of my receipts. Apparently when you order the Lobster Bisque, the translation makes you wonder if the good chef decided to make an extra special soup for ya...

Item 119 on the attached. :(

I used to expense beer with a meal. Couldn't expense a bar tab, though - not unless it was for an official team meeting.

Be careful when ordering food without preservatives...

"Preservative" in German is conservierungstoffe

Preservativen is "Condoms"...

That would be the calamari rings, if memory serves.

And to answer Joe's question, the scnitzel smmich was OK, but I prefer the Jagerschnitzel, which is a pork cutlet, dipped in egg, then battered, fired and served with a thick gravy heavy with mushrooms, served with spaetzel - potato noodles.

I have chosen not to start my New Year's weight loss program until after I finished up my business trips.

Looking forward to seeing Big Daddy & L'il Momma in a couple more weeks.

Same here, my boss didn't care what I ate or drank as long as I didn't go over the 47.50 a day I was allocated for meals.

If you want to expense booze, you get a recept that doesn't say what you had just what it cost. Thats what i use to do.

Just me but I get nervous ordering Lobster Bisque some where that isn't surrounded by (salt) water.

Nah. It doesn't work. Zipper "tenderloin" just doesn't make much sense.

Tell your German neighbor girl "Ich will auf dir besteigen."

Translated literally it means "I want to mount you." but it's sure to get you some puzzled looks.

Du kannst mein hund fincken yenst.

Am I close?

Of course, that's a MALE dog.

For a female dog, it would be

I told someone the other day (gochiefs maybe?) to tell the German FES "Ich bin heiss."

Translated literally it means "I am hot." However, if you wish to say that you are hot, as in the condition of it being hot outside and it's making you sweat, you say Ich bin warm. "Ich bin heiss" is basically "I'm a homo".

Speaking of your expense account:
How much did that kobe beef run you in Japan?

Actually...

Ich Bin Heiss is "I'm horny"
Ich Bin Warm is I'm a homo"
...and...
Mir ist heiss is "I'm hot"

When my friend came over from Wiesbaden (she should be coming back for most of March or April!) I decided to brush up on my German(which is crap).. but instead I just looked up a bunch of dirty phrases

MY ALL TIME FAVORITE GERMAN WORD IS...

Brustwarzen.. which is great for two reasons... #1 it means nipples and #2 the LITERAL translation is BREAST-WARTS... ahh those Uber-Romantic Germans!

That's the thing I love about German...utter disdain for the "romanticism" of the Latin languages.

German is functional.

Yeah, those crazy Germans. What were they thinking about when they built the Bismark and all those U-boats?

I have never ate escargot. Now that I know what it is I think I'll have to pass if I ever have the chance.
