I wanted to brush up on my German skills. I did that plus got a few laughs on the way. I am now watching all of his videos.

She isn't head of state, Dermot. She's head of Government (like Brian Cowen here).

I am learning some useful things,and it is very funny. I was not pleased with the reference to Chancellor Angela Merkel, she is a Head of State.
