Not about football

with 8 comments

Any German speakers out there who can help me out? Here’s a van I saw recently with words on both sides. Letters are missing from both sides, too. I’m incredibly curious to find out what it is trying to spell out.

And here’s a kinda composite of where those letters would occur:

Any ideas, mein lieblings? Bitte! Ich braucht dein hilfen!

  1. Das ist echt schwer!!! Maybe the first word is “Stanzung” which is the Substantiv of “stanzen” (blanking, pressing, punching). It would make sense as an advertisement for a company for “Stanzen”, “Prägen” usw.
    But I don’t know, what to do with that “A” at the end…
    Let me think…

  2. … and the 3. word could be “Applikationsarbeiten”, which means “applications”. There not so many words ending with “-kation” (Applikation, Fraktion, Indikation, Publikation … know some more???!!!)
    “Applikationsarbeiten” would perfectly fit to “StanzungsARBEITEN” (the “A”!).

  3. Or “Stanzungsamt” (“amt” is for office)
    Sorry not to be able to help you further…

  4. I bet it is your own car where you randomly put letters on the windows just to bend our minds. Admit it.

  5. I’m glad it’s not just me being thick in not being able to work out what words are on there. Thanks for you help, leute.

  6. Sorry for my late comment here Craig; but I think I’ve got the answer:

    It isn’t German after all; it’s southern Ungsa-Tungs dialect, the message, correctly spelled on the car of the U-T soccer team, roughly reads:

    This is the official Ungsa Tungs van. Don’t scratch it.

  7. Is that true or are you messing with my head?

  8. It’s not true craig, Ungsa Tungs don’t play soccer. They’re more into chess.
    Sorry for messing with your head.

    Could have been true though?!
