Not a Yahtzee


You might have to say “yahtzee” out loud to get the joke.

Pretty much how the German government reacts whenever Nazis are mentioned, if German soldiers does something violent somewhere, or if anything that could in anyway make people think of Nazis happens. They’re quite paranoid about the subject.

@Rioluman @Lumoseo Of course they do. History lessons are basically like this: http://9gag.com/gag/aD3Q08d
Most of us have at least 'visited' a concentration camp once, always with the aftertaste of guilt. I can only speak for myself and all Germans I know, but I can definitely say that we learn a lot about Hitler, World War II, everything. By the way - it's a crime to deny the Holocaust in Germany.

In the German side of my family, we call the game "Kniffel" instead of "Yahtzee." Not sure if it's that way with anyone else.

Awww, I get all bleary-eyed at all the nice '<hug Germany> or <3 Germany comments.

<sniffle> <pulls out hanky> <bloooort> <wipes nose>.

Love the SatW comics... sooo great.

But for me it does so apply. I am one of the 'old farts' around here, so, yeah, I have parents that were born at the time.
Mind you, my father was born 1932, my mother seven years later... so , no, they didn't have anything to do either with any war-crimes, or with supporting Hitler. Yet the mantra: "Never forget, never repeat" is soooo appropriate.

Somehow I still feel the need to apologize for something I didn't do, or didn't have any chance of stopping.
Irrational, I know... but it has been ingrained deeply.

I have so many friends from across the globe: Dutch, Swedish, US-Americans, English, Scottish. We get along just great.

The funniest/most-screwed-up thing (depending on how you want to look at it) happened when I visited my mate in London in 1991. I was 21 at the time.
He is English but speaks an absolutely flawless German. He asked me to refresh his German a bit during my stay (not that he needed it) so we gabbled away in German a lot, even in public. An old lady overheard us in the London tube, and she mumbled, not really under her breath: "Look at them damn Nazis."

We just looked at each other while keeping up our conversation and then switched to perfect cockney accent in mid-sentence (yeah, I visited London often at that time, so I actually had a chance to pull off a few sentences in that accent). The mortified look on that lady's face was just worth it.

Later at home my mate apologized to me for that incident. Strange, isn't it?!?
