  • Hou Hou Hou Hou I’am not sure to be on a classical website

  • IP says:

    Well, they didn’t have enough items for RECTAL

    Leaders and media full-blown DEGENERATE

    Apparently British humour if you are so enthusiastic about this specific meme … Keep dreaming…

  • Anthony Sayer says:

    Why are we not surprised?

    Interesting fight.

    The launch of many unfortunate memes in English-speaking social media world.

  • Greg Bottini says:

    It’s good advice.
    Many folks don’t care for it, though….

  • Ashu says:

    I wonder if the acronym is as unhappy in German as it is in English. It’s memorable, anyway.

  • Rich Patina says:

    Sure it’s a bum rap, but the designers of this will be the butt of many jokes, for making asses of themselves.

  • Andreas B. says:

    A spoof, of course (“anal” is literally the same word in both languages).

    The actual official acronym used is ‘AHA+L+A’:

    Admittedly, not quite as catchy …

      “I would have thought enough Germans knew english for that kind of thing not to happen.”

      How do I know you are American and not English? Because you think that’s an English word. 😉

      • John Borstlap says:

        Attempts at English in non-English-speaking countries are vulnerable to curious misunderstandings.

        A sign at a Japanese hotel elevator: “Because broken, we apologize you are unbearable”.

        In a Serbian hotel: “Any massages will be given to correct guest”.

        ‘Your wife is delicious’. President Macron to a visiting politician.

        Spanish restaurant window: “Don’t stand there and be hungry. Come in and get fed up.”

        On the menu of a Swiss restaurant: “Our wines leave you nothing to hope for.”

        In a Tokyo bar: “Special cocktails for the ladies with nuts.”

    Use soap
    Cough into elbow
    Keep at distance

  • Ed says:

    Got this one passed along three weeks ago. Moderate chuckle then, no chuckle now.

  • Bertie Wooster says:

    A cafe in India has the name Anu’s!

    Very popular with tourists I am told.

  • RW2013 says:

    Indeed, 2020 was another anus horribilis.
