Not trying to destroy your pun, but the "s" in "sechs" is actually pronounced like the English "z".

It took me a minute to get it. Thanks Oomph! for teaching me to count in German before I even studied German.

I used to think it was more funny when I didn't know a lot. Now I know for example that ''sechs'' is pronounced like the English ''z'' in zebra or zoo for example. Nice joke though!

Thanks. This might actually help me remember my numbers!

Difference means subtraction, so your answer should be -2 (zwei negativen?). Sorry, math geek :)
