Overview

If you think you have a fairly good command of German, think again. For it's a sure bet that Frau Schultz never taught you those nasty little guttural curses and humiliating invectives so expressive of real low German speech. But relax - here at last is the one book that can introduce you to the very worst beer-hall German. Scheisse! is an indispensible guide to off-color German colloquialisms and profanities - lascivious bedroom slang and boozy insults, jeering scatalogical put-downs and scurrilous ridicule. This hilariously illustrated cornucopia of creative expletives, gauranteed to vex, taunt, aggravate, and provoke as only overwrought low German can, will help you master the fine art of German verbal abuse - with triumphant one-upmanship.

Another entry in the bestselling, Merda! series, this humorous book helps readers navigate the world of real Low German. Scheisse! introduces readers to the fine art of cursing and basic slang to spice up their German speech. On-air radio giveaways.

    Great gift for a friend!

    We recently travelled with a friend (who studied German). He has a great sense of humor and we sent the book to him as part of a thank you gift.

    GREAT

    I see no better word I could use to describe this book than GREAT. It surpasses all the other dirty language books I have purchased for various other languages. It is well constructed, well laid out, and well written. A general knowledge of German is necessary to understand the dialogues, conjunctions, etc. Never in my schooling, travels, or studies have I found such an interesting and amusing street-wise publication.

    'Ich Bin Sehr Geil!'

    This book is so funny. It tells you how to say all the things that no one would ever teach you and the things that would discust your teacher. It tells you how to say 'I am HORNEY' and then some other vulgar comments that the people at barnes and noble would probably not let me put in this. It also gives you some other things that may come in handy like 'Where is the bathroom.' I would really recommend this book for imature people also.

    Das Buch ist NICHT scheisse!!!!!!!!

    If you have or are taking German, I highly recommend this book. It has all the german that your teacher is not going to teach you but you need to know. Especially if you are planning on 'picking up' a fine German chick or fine german guy. It gives you all you need to know in regards to Love, relationships all the way up to 'in' the workplace and profanity. If you are as interested in the German language as I am you will NOT be dissapointed with this book. You WILL use it for many things (especially for those 'naughty' talkes on the internet with other germans).
