Excuse me

Germans aren't often known for their humor. It's there and often in satirical form, but it's not easily identified when learning the complex language, which isn't exactly flexible.

When I saw this port-a potty I had a nice laugh. Although here ASS is an acronym and 'miet' means rental it's so literal, which seems very German.

Thanks for the explanation. That's funny! Languages and translations can be amusing.

That made me laugh! I must remember to take a picture of the industrial vacuum cleaner outlet near our local supermarket. It has the brand name: Rent Boy.

Makes me giggle every time...
