Germans Are Funny

One time I went to Germany with my brother and our good friend Peter. A fantastic time was had by all, though Joe learned the hard way (asking a kindly old lady if she was in the market for "Some Hard Dick") that most Germans speak pretty good English. Which makes this BBC story, even though its kind of old, even more hilarious.

A video aired on German TV has shown an army recruit on firing practice being ordered to pretend he was in New York's Bronx facing hostile African Americans.

Amazing what typing the words "racist" and "german" into YouTube will get you:

The basic translation, via BBC, is as follows:

"You're in the Bronx, a black van pulls up in front of you and three African-Americans get out and start really insulting your mother... act!".

I guess the cats out of the bag with regards to which NY borough will get to play the role of France come WWIII. I imagine this is similar to the kind of training Sammy D undergoes when he's in training for the paintball season.
