The German (or Italian or Norwegian or Polish, etc.) that we heard as kids from our grandparents/relatives on SI went through a "New Yorker" filtration/modification process and while some of the words are understandable to the present day natives of those countries most of the grammatical construction is not. Every once in a while one gets in a remote region and one hears a word that resembles what one heard on SI as a kid.

What the hell, that's the outside world's loss...not ours! Only SI'ders are worth imitating!
