    OK, I'll go first:

    I'm inclined to knock music.

    I got the "fear" one (Vier letzte Lieder), but "Stwowce" completely baffles me. It looks like Polish, and I don't know Polish.

    My contribution:

    Allah mention wear then breed her.

    Something about girls and bread?

    My German is practically non-existant - I get the counting joke - fier, funf, sechs - but that's about my limit :redface:

    I hope you like it rough, 'cause we have lots of them. Here's another:

    Each bender, guys, to stay for night.

    That's a bit strained, so I'll give you a clue: it is spoken by the one entertaining character in the most famous poem (or play) in German.

    (PS to Rubi: I hope that you got some amusement from the thought of me trying to pronounce "Stwowce" in Polish.)

    Yes, the Polish 'w' would be completely deceiving, and you'd make a full syllable out of the 'ce.':cool:

    Is the German word for "virgin" goes-in-tight? (say out loud/fast)

    I'm probably the only one who can actually get through this hell because i was teaching German to college students throughout my grad school years and heard every possible butchering of the procunciation :cool:

    You got it (obviously). Maybe that was a little too difficult for the non-Germans.

    Very funny, in a horrifying sort of way.

    :confused: I'm fllummoxed. The only thing I can come up with is "Und hast mit Recht," but that is not a grammatical phrase. Do we get a clue?

    What did the grape-stompers say to each other as they left the festival?

    "Our feet are stained."
