I’m a big fan of the CBS show, “The Big Bang Theory.” If you aren’t familiar with it, I suggest you head on over to Netflix or wherever you acquire your videos from and pick yourself up a few seasons; at the very least it will give you something to do until the temperature rises.
If you are in Germany, you can catch it in syndication and dubbed on ProSeiben as well. I’ve often wondered what poor sap is given the task of translating all that technical science stuff, and how well the puns/jokes that go along with all the nerd-dom translate. Someday when my German is up to speed, I’ll watch it and answer that question.
But I was catching up on some recent episodes and I quite enjoyed this little shout-out to Bavaria that came via Sheldon’s informative new show on flags. Which is a fantastic idea. Enjoy!
“Und ich bin eine Brezel!” Love it.
Although, if we’re going to be technical, you don’t hear “Guten Tag” very often in Bavaria… it’s much more typical to hear “Grüß Gott” as the standard greeting. And here in Franconia, you might even hear “Servus” instead. And if you’re like me, the first time you hear it you will be extremely confused, and spend the next 30 minutes of your commute trying to figure out if the man on the bike was swearing at you when he rode by. Or if he was saying “Severus,” in which case you will wonder if you look like Severus Snape. What can I say, dialect is confusing.
