Germans call their own fußballers pussies.


(click ad) The 'ol hidden ball trick. Bizarre, phorcefully Photoshopped ad for the Düsseldorf Panther (Yes, Panther, not plural) of the German Football League. The GFL semifinals are this weekend, with one game pitting the Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns (snicker) vs. the Kiel Baltic Hurricanes. The Panther, who were last champions of the GFL in 1995, unfortunately spent this season in relegation (ad by McCann Erickson Düsseldorf, via). Previous football ads: Johnnie Walker—official anesthetic of the NFL. Johnnie Walker—this crazy offensive play makes no sense. related: my business meeting with LT (true story).

not to be obvious or anything, but "Panther" is the correct *german* plural.

I know, I took 4 years of German in H.S. That was for our lunkheaded American football fans.

Not to be obvious or anything, but you wrote, "Not plural".

I'm guessing "Not plural" means that's the correct way to write it.
