It's probably because a lot of references only make sense in English or are US based. For example, "surely" sounds like "Shirley". I don't think Anita Bryant is well known in Germany. Yuban coffee is likely not sold in Germany either. Is there such a thing as German black jive? ...Jump to post

Chinese calmness on MSM and SM raises questions about this clash.
