Thanks to my german phrasebook  I am quite unsuccessfully getting around. It comes with a disclaimer that some phrases are for joke only and the reader should know well enough not to use them.

Perhaps these are part of them. I can say I am gay, straight, bisexual, or prudish. I can say ask someone if the want to hear me burp. I can explain I am rich and single or that I am a pickpocket. 

And did you know animals in Germany also speak a new language? The phrasebook lets me know that ducks say quak quak (pronounced kvahk kvahk) and instead of cock-a-doodle-do roosters wake you up with 'kee-keh-ree-kee'.
