Ripley’s Law

Schnitzel Republic evil genius, impresario, and au-teur, has ten fine tips that will give you and the children hours, nay, days of entertainment. Actually, he has 10 fine ways to upset a German, as if it was really all that hard. It has echoes of “Americans Anonymous”.

Fifth....when the German associate criticizes your government or your American, and just say "yeah, you're right". Don't waste effort in'll just aggravate the guy.
Leaving aside my bulging file of car and alcohol subject that are better left on pedantry’s doorstep, a challenge to ones’ pride must forever go untouched:
Ninth....when your German neighbor or associate tries awful hard to tell a joke, and its pretty and just laugh. If you do anything otherwise...they will say that you don't have a sense of humor.
True, even when grading on a curve.
