Shitstorm 'best English gift to German language' in 2011
Germany needed Shitstorm, according to a group of language experts who elected the word as the top English contribution to the German language last year.

The jury said in a statement on Monday: “Shitstorm fills a gap in the German vocabulary that has become apparent through changes in the culture of public debate.”

It won Germany's “Anglicism of the Year” award.

Why the hell would Germans want to anglecize the German language? Why can't the German language just remain German?

How about Germanizing the English language? (<--Sarcasm)

Yes, I know... Uhr=hour, in the north they say things like es ist vier o clock, nord=north, see=sea, etc...English is derived more from German than from latin...my point is, why would any German want to corrupt their own language with the mutt language known as English?
