He Was Sick As A Parrot?

Tom Elia has a quite amusing find: a British Embassy "Hooligan to German" phrase dictionary created just in time for the World Cup.

It includes such gems as:

"Ihm war kotzuebel" (He was sick as a parrot) and;
"Er kotzte wie ein Reiher" (He puked his guts up)

See my friends at The New Editor for the rest.

There is a downloadable PDF.

As a side note, I was a fairly formidable striker in my playing days, with a rather wicked Bananenschuss before my knees went south...
