I have been teaching a new beginners German class tonight and at the end of the lesson one student came and told me a funny story.
It was about a Battle of Britain celebration he went to a few years ago. The RAF base invited a few German and Italian pilots to the celebration but then got quite worried how the Germans would feel about the anniversary.
It seemed the Germans had the same thoughts because they arrived wearing T-shirts, printed with the following:
“Battle of Britain 1940 runners up”
Who says the Germans don’t have a sense of humour?
