International flare

June 6, 2007

I find it interesting that so many words from the English/American lexicon have made their way into foreign languages.  It makes sense as we have many of their words in ours, but it’s always a bit striking to hear it first hand.

I’m sitting in a room waiting for the first session of the day to start and there’s a gentleman behind me speaking on the phone in German.

“German German German German webcam German German instant messaging German German, OK?  Hahahaha.”

I don’t get the joke…. 🙂
