I don't speak German. When I first saw this post, I thought that it belonged on the German forum. But, when I looked at the video, I realized that you don't need to understand the language to be able to enjoy the video and laugh hysterically at it. Thanks for posting. :)

No worries, we hardly ever talk about Rhabarberbarbarabarbarbarenbärtebarbierbierbarbärbel. Only when we run out of other interesting subjects like Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz or Donaudampfschifffahrtsgesellschaftskapitaensfrauenverbands vorsitzendenaufwandsentschädigungsrahmenordnungsrichtlinienen :D

But au contraire! Take Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz... in most other languages you would have to take all the nouns one by one and connect them with prepositions and articles. In German, you just stick together what you want and that's it. :)

This video is so funny that it's gotten me talking to my German exchange partner (in German, too, which must be a first) from years ago because I wanted to share it with her. Awesome!

Cracked me up the whole time. I love and hate the way German mashes words together. Great find! xDDD

Thank you for that link. It's so funny. How she managed to say it without tripping up I don't know.
