Got a giggle this morning reading the food-store ‘Prospekt‘ (specials/circulars) because this ad is a prime example of the directness of the German language and what I love about it. German is what it says and says what it is – fertig!
The same product in English would definitely not be named ‘Herpes Lip Cream’. It would have an ambiguous name. Don’t believe me? Consider Exhibit A.
Silver-lining, in German, at least you’ll know what you’re buying!
