  1. Surely someone can do a better job with the graphics than I did. Volunteers? T-shirt? Bumper sticker? Viral photo?

  2. Isn’t he going on a world trip soon? Maybe a photo of him in front of something Germanic could be used?

  3. It should probably also be, “Nein, danke.” As in “No, thanks.” See also the long-running “Atomkraft? Nein danke” campaign.

    1. To nitpick further, “nein danke” is generally written without a comma. While “danke”, when appended to something else (like all “Höflichkeitsformeln”), is generally separated by a comma (like “thank you” in English), “nein danke” is a phrase (Höflichkeitsformel) of its own.

  4. Ja, ganz wunderbar! I’d prefer it without the first period, though. And to put it in context, I´d like to see an image of a Dönerladen or Currywurstbude.

  5. I LOLzed. Surely the Deutsch for LOLz is 25 letters long. And I agree with the ‘Nein, danke’. I don’t know how many you’ll sell though. This is Murrica.
