My eyes aren't meant for the immense grandeur of the great and glorious spud
Truely beyond my mortal grasp
It's hardly good manners to show off your spud without first asking if the other person wants to see it. We are not barbarians.
I can only deduce this is a popular pick-up line in German pubs.
It's not. Duo nimmt Drogen.
It would make my life complete.
Enough with seeing the f***ing potato already.
How can i resist?
The potato which I grubbed up in my garden this morning bears a clear image of Karl Marx's face. 'Tis a sign, I tell you. You don't believe me? Would you like to see the potato?
I always say that.
No, that would be too hard. Just pull the plug please.
That must be a very unique potato.
Duo is constantly mocking Germans, i feel like :)
Is this a German thing? Do Germans have strange potatoes or are potates slang for the Buddha or something????
Why is ihr "you" and not "she"?
"Ihr" in this sentence is used as the informal form of you plural. Kind of like how you have "du" as the informal singular pronoun for "you," "ihr" is both "she" and the informal plural pronoun.
Deutsche Sprache, schwere Sprache.
Also, the verb conjugation shows that it can't be 3rd person singular. If it were, the verb would be conjugated as "möchte". There's also the fact that "ihr" is dative case for "she/her", while nominative case should be used here.
Do any of the other languages on Duolingo have holy potatoes, or is German special?
This must be some potatoe
Ok I just had to say that all of the sentences in this less about people wanting to see "the potato" has me dying laughing!
We are speaking of the holy potato, I assume.
Tell Duolingo to think more about green vegetables and protein. This obsession is not healthy.
But you haven't seen This potato.
Is there a magical potato in Germany that I don't know about? In all of my life I have never asked to see a particular potato.
Yes there is actually
Ich brauche nicht es zu sehen, um es zu glauben.
So funny! Made me laugh thankyou all.
Despite all the misery about coronavirus, this has made me laugh out loud.
Thank you so much - a moment of sheer ludicracy -great!
it stopped being funny the third time
