Speaking of Language Purity
July 2, 2013
Angela Merkel’s use of an Anglicism to describe a public outcry has the German language purists in an uproar. This sheißkopf prefers sheißstrum (three consecutive “s” when you do not use German alphabet). Then again, I haven’t been back to Germany in the 40 plus years since I lived there. Plus, obscenities in a foreign language seem less objectionable.
