In Texas there is a town called New Braunfels, where there is a large German-speaking population.
One day, a local rancher driving down a country road noticed a man using his hand to drink water from the rancher's stock pond.
The rancher rolled down the window and shouted: "Sehr angenehm! Trink das wasser nicht. Die kuhen haben dahin gesheissen."
Which means: "Glad to meet you! Don't drink the water. The cows have shit in it."
The man shouted back: "I'm from Massachusetts and just down here campaigning for Obama's health care plan. I can't understand you. Please speak in English."
The rancher replied: "Use both hands. You'll get more."
