I find it quite humorous when German women and children find something disgusting and/or gross, they exclaim, "eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!". Guess the english translation would be, "ewww".

My favourite German word, or words, are Schlact Schlampe - battle slut - a term used to describe the drunk and out-of-control British girls on a Saturday night in any given town.
