    While funny sounding, all it says is we are searching for cooks, cashiers, supervisors and trainees.

    So this really isn`t that funny.

    Other funny german words:

    Quickborn (city in north germany)

    Hamburger Sparkasse (A bank seated in Hamburg)

    We have a river named Oder.

    And a certain dish called Germknödel.

    That`s all I can think of.

    Also I loved how an american friend pronounced Goethe like Goatee with th :D .

    It probably says:

    Hehe, inmates. I love the anology of I-A-B being pretty much a sanitorium. Sums it up pretty well. To continue the analogy, us Mods are inmates as well, it`s just that we`re inmates who happened to have found the key to the liquor cabinet. It`s all good. Dark, but good.

    This is German. Its a language they speak in the faraway land of "Germany". There are many other lands in the world, each with its own language. (Except America, you stole ours.) I know its confusing but I`m sure you`ll get used to it.

    If you spoke German and you read something that said whatever in English but sounded like "Come poo on our chests" in German, you might find it humorous. Also, many Americans know Spanish since Germany`s on the other side of the world and there are no benefits to learning the language of its people.
