Nonetheless, I'm still convinced the English team around Peter Gabriel can create something better 2006 then they did for the Millennium Dome project.

Oh - be nice to the English. They're a lovely people. Such aversion to soccer riots, such distaste for beer, such ambivalence toward the game of soccer (excuse me: football).

Go easy on them eh?

As old as it may be it is still a JOKE, and going by the article the people of Germany will see it as 'dry British wit' and nothing more.


When in doubt give it a clout

A great weekend result by the Welsh. Let's hope their road back to being a real force in world rugby continues!

I'm afraid, all that article can talk about is TWO comedies that are old, dead and gone. (As great as they were in their hay day).

What about more recent comedies such as Little Britain, The Fast Show, Bremner Bird and Fortune, Drop The Dead Donkey, Father Ted.

(Granted even some of Those comedies are a little long in the tooth)

Germans understanding British Humour? I dont think so... I think that they need to understand their OWN humour before they start to call the british "pathetic loosers"...

Why not? Our Federal Ombudsman on Foreign Humour (FOOFH) has only recently published volume two, part four of his extensive resarch work on the socio-economic dimension of Basil Fawlty's alleged misanthropy.

Dont tar us scots with the same brush! Our fans are amongst the best behaved anywhere in the world.

Its the english causing all the trouble, not the scots or british!

The trouble with the T-shirts is that the point being made (which is, let's talk about football, not the stereotypes) is actually rather subtle, thus guaranteeing that not a single one of the 80 million Germans will actually understand the joke, and will only see the obvious that is actually trying to be subverted.  Wink

Trying humour, particularly sophisticated humour, with the Germans is a waste of time. NoUFO proves the point perfectly but not understanding what they're getting at.  Wink

If it were mandatory to have a stay in another country we would understand each other so much better.
I love the english culture for all the aspects it has.
I love my german culture as well and i love to get new impressions on other cultures in the not too distant future.

These football fans mentioned are dumbass fans (and Hoologans) which exists on both sides.
Just remember the pedestrian bridge for the new wembley stadium.
When German fans tried to manipulate an internet poll to name it
"Dietmar Harmann Bridge" cause he shot the last goal in the old Wembley!

When it comes to football a lot of brains are being shutdown.

There is one problem with airbus. Though their products are engineering marvels they lack passion, completely.

Right; did I mention I don't care about football?
Here in Berlin they plan to wrap the TV tower's ball with a football costume during the world cup. Good thing, since it will be widely visible when the games are finally over.

Anybody got a picture of Gascoigne bursting into tears in the semi-final 1990? You know, maybe you have a great sense of humour, but you're still little pussies.
