      Well, to English school kids it sounds like gayography, and obviously that was mighty hilarious.

      Disclaimer: I loved German, but I had an extremely disruptive and immature class who used to just mess about the whole time (as is sadly a very common attitude to most Modern Language classrooms in the Uk). I'm sure if the class had settled down we'd have progressed much quicker, although I did get an A* in my GCSE because I genuinely enjoy languages.

          making love without emotion don't pretend timmy, don't...
          I really didn't know. How could I figure out that Fuchs sounds like "f*ck" for non-native speakers? I disn't even get the connection between both .

          This sounds like you people are easy to amuse... But then again, we actually laughed when we were taught that you give someone a gift if you have got good intentions .

          Didn't get that one either... I was like "möde" as in "öde" (=lame) ?

          @Airwrecka: Gayography? What a silly class ... Especially since the word exists more or less in your mother tongue as well.

          @Serby: Muschi is probably the most popular word to use when refering to the vagina in a not so formal way. Less common ones are Möse, Fotze or of course Scheide. Don't get the fuss with hören either ... And up to now I didn't get why people laughed at the word "dick" !

              I'm guessing it's the similarity to whore. Don't forget a lot of English people are too lazy to actually pronounce the words properly.

                    If that's really the case, then you can make a funny word out of almost everything, like seriously ... But then again, I also used to laugh when I read about the French expression "kiffe, kiffe" for the first time .

                    @fpfbm54: Of course, I mean how should I get the connection ?

                        Well, I don't personally find hören amusing, so I'm just assuming that's why.

                          It's that thing you put into the möse, if you want to.

                            Funny thing is that Muschi = vagina = cat and Möpse = tits = dogs.

                                      Oh God.. I'm a little drunk after "celebrating" another flop exam and typing on the phone (with the keyboard set to British English) is a mess. I, of course, meant Honig and not Hönig

                                      Yup, I knew that -ig at the end should be pronounced as -ich but I can swear that I did hear people saying König/Honig (like Iggy) and not Könich/Honich. Or maybe I confused myself here. :-?

                                      As for "dick", my German teacher at Göthe Institut in Delhi turned a few shades red when forming sentences like "Michael ist dick" and there was a student by the name Michael there in class. She blamed it on the Tangram book we used.

                                        And apparently Serby refers to a dick as Zumpferl .

                                        @Keks: Yeah, some old women call their cats Muschi . And yeah, Möpse = pugs, that's usually the center of many jokes around here .

                                        @Serby: Messy Serbians . I mean I know the English word "dick" but when I read the German word somewhere, I wouldn't expect people to actually laugh about it .

                                            As I told you before, we had a cat when I was 3 years old. She was named Muschi. Muschi died in a car accident.

                                                  and we pronounce 'wolle' for lieben, so I read it as guys want hoes and guys like hoes.
