  4. I lived in Gettysburg, PA, USA for a while and I always laughed because there was a kitschy little store that sold German-esque trinkets (because PA has a lot of German heritage I suppose) but they named it "Das Gift Haus".

    1. Ha, that must have caused quite a few double takes whenever there were German tourists around... XD

    2. There's a group referred to as "Pennsylvania Dutch" who have nothing to do with the Netherlands, but are actually of German descent, with "Dutch" being a corruption of "Deutsch."

  5. Snakes have venom, not poison. Poison: if you bite it, you die. Venom: If it bites you, you die.
