For a role-play exercise in German class, the pupils had to stand in front of the class and display their new-found knowledge of airport vocabulary. After a short terrorist-and-bomb-style exchange, Sean Wensley and Michael Lancaster shouted "Schnell! Schell!" and ran out of the room. Sean never came back to the class. After that, we had no more role-plays.

"Schnell, Schnell! Kartoffelnkopf!"
A phrase we picked up from a war movie and thought we'd impress our lady German teacher with. Unfortunately our cries of "Quickly, quickly! Potato head!" did not gain her favour.
Our end of year present of a large chocolate dildo had a much more positive effect.

During Commandos, the computer game,the soldiers will say schnell, but also something that sounds like 'Uncle Lester'. This has been part of my German vocabulary for years now, although no-one knows what it means. PS - please help

It's 2011, now. Surely someone can be arsed to download an emulator, play this game, then report back? I know I can't.

Without wishing to seem any more of an anal dweeb than I am, wasn't that snatch of German from an Episode of Blackadder Goes Forth? Far less macho than "some war movie", no?
