jokes in German?
I like your tumblr! I am interested in short jokes/riddles — one or two sentences in native German that would make someone laugh, but it would be for work, so I’d prefer it not to be rude or mean or naughty language.
Here’s why - have you ever seen an “out of office” email? An automatic response email that tells you someone is on vacation?
Example: vielen Dank für Ihre Nachricht. Ich bin bis zum 25.08.2014 im Urlaub und habe nur sehr eingeschränkten Zugriff auf meine Mails.
In our company, people translate the same thing in 2-3 different languages, and I thought it would be funny if I said in English I am out of office, but in my German “translation” I told a joke :)
So i want something short that looks like an “out of office” but that would make my German co-workers laugh and then wonder if I really know what I am saying :)
If you have time, I would really appreciate it!
Hey there! :)
Sorry, but I can’t think of anything great right now. I’m also not compleeetely back yet, but I’ll publish this and hope someone else here is going to contact you if they have an idea!
