It was so funny when the guy sang the wrong version of the German national anthem at that tennis tournament recently and the players/crowd started singing different words to what the actual singer was singing

Where did the organisers even go to look up those lyrics where there wouldn't have been some kind of disclaimer saying it was a taboo to sing that verse?

When I tell people I'm from America, they lie prostrate on the floor and pay respect to my feet. Either that or they simply ignore me.

I think it's mostly the latter though.
