Thank you all for your help!

 

Here is a mature comeback from somebody looking for English grinds for his daughter, who had his thread high-jacked. Maybe some of us I could take a leaf out of his book :P

Another one on the polanski thread:

 

 

I assume that Polanski will be employing Johnnie Cochran (OJ Simpsons 'I can get away with murder' lawyer)...

 

 

 

He's dead, so probably not.

On the discussion on the Morning-after pill. Had to chuckle!!!

 

 

More interestingly, did they say if there was an age limit on who can purchase it?

 

 

 

I think it would be pointless after 65.

Have to love this response.

 

 

Did the guy have the heart attack BEFORE or AFTER receiving the shot?

 

 

 

Is this a serious question? What's next? Did the guy get the shot before or after dying?

Bring back the tagline, RIP.

 

 

 

It's not dead. It's just resting.

 

 

 

I heard that line on the Viagra commercial.

 

I don't want to go home meester.

If someone in the "know" wanted to post a synopsis without the golf puns, it would be helpful.

 

 

 

Now we are supposed to be helpful? Sorry, but the golf puns are the only thing worth posting. Unless there is a synopsis video of the Tiger driving wood into El or some other hole, then the rest is pretty much "go to sleep on a Sunday afternoon watching boring golf" as usual. We want more titillation and the more titillation from El (or the other holes) the better!

 

Maybe not exactly a "comeback" but a response that had me laughing.

Again, not a comeback as such...

 

 

conzia, if she tricked someone into claiming paternity for a kid that isn't his, all of her actions should be viewed much more skeptically.

 

 

 

What actions? Not following you, Cinquistador.

Not being biased, but I too have a soft spot for Dad's Army.

 

 

 

Don't tell him your name!

 

Does it qualify as a comeback? Brought a warm smile to my face.

Hello!

I'm new on the forum and like Olscha "a non-native speaker looking for an opportunity to practice my conversation skills..."

I would like to join you the next time you go to a restaurant (Unfortunately I don't like beer although I've been living in Bavaria since 24 years!!)

 

Hope to see you soon

 

Isabelle

 

 

 

First tip: "since 1976", or "for 24 years"

 

Sorry if this seems pedantic, but virtually all the germans I've ever met make this mistake too. And it gets on my bloody nerves! Especially this early on a Saturday morning.

 

 

 

And if you want to be 100% correct, you should say "since 1986."

 

Wonderful Bobby. Although KW was a little grumpy here he is still a good guy. Bobby reminded him to be a pedantic means to be pedantic.

I haven't been on this forum very long nor have I lived in Germany very long so I am still relatively friendly

 

Love it!!!

Have to believe in it in order for it to work??? ...

This has me worried, I have nose spray, headache tablets and other assorted stuff at home, do I need to build them a little shrine or something, maybe kill a few snails in reverence?

Love the image of reverently squishing snails at a little shrine to the god of nasal spray.

Taken from breaking a tooth in a restaurant:

 

 

Imagine you screamed too much on the phone, and now have no voice left for one month. would you get refunded the monthly telephone subscription?

 

Hilarious!!! I must try it some time.

To be pedantic means to be a pendant ;)

Children having Mullet haircuts.

 

 

Just ban children, kills two birds with one stone...mullets and brats

 

 

Cunning as before long there would be nobody doing anything to ban.

 

 

bingo...it's win win.
