Re: Why I LOVE Switzerland.

I feel the need to differentiate between German and Swiss colleagues here. We English find toilet humour so amusing and I've found that the Swiss share this view (once the ice is broken i.e. after 4 or 5 years of being neighbours, colleagues, etc). Germans, on the other hand ... "insert Blackadder clip here ....".

You're absolutely right. The Germans also seem to find Mr Bean hysterical whereas many English find it to be the poorest humour from Rowan Atkinson

"You Englisch, viz your amusing toilet humour"

Why do the Germans always say "Wessels" and not vessels? Puzzles me that one as the "W" sound doesn't exist in Hochdeutsch
