Back from Austria with Austrian Denglish

Spare rips

Just to recap, Denglish is German (Deutsch) mashed together with English, and since Austrians speak German (love the way it sings), they too can produce their own variety of Dunglish. In fact, the village I stay in had lots of Dutch signs with German endings, but we eventually understood what they meant. Something to do with skis.

I wouldn’t normally make a big deal out of such a typo, but since this was on the menu half way down the ski slope, I couldn’t leave it alone. The food was very good (I ordered the goulash). And nobody needs spare rips when booming down the piste.
