What a cool site. Sorry to take so long to check it out. Haven't done my German homework for a while ;-) so I didn't see yuor comment on my blog.
Don't know if it's a Germanism, but the most amusing thing I have heard lately is that referees (I play volleyball) are called Schiedsrichter. Pronounced shits-rickter, or at least that's what it sounds like. Most of the names I have called referees in English are pretty close to that. I'm sure we could make a Germanism out of it ;-)
