Vision Located, Fuzzy

Things don’t seem to be going well for the ultimate anglo-saxon patter.
Germans learn foreign languages while foreigners shun German
Reason found.
“Our song title is ‘Miss Kiss Kiss Bang,’
That spot on your eye, that foggy feeling, all of it has been brought on by that continental scourge of vapidity called Eurovision. Oxymoron, really.

What the promoters of the tongue really need is a catchy tag line, as opposed to that “francophonie or impalement! Take your pick!” paranoiac rhetoric that they use next door. They need something like “Learn German: it’s a strange proclivity.”
