Warum deine Mutter Deutsch spricht

Raymond Chen

This upcoming Sunday is Mother’s Day in the United States. In recognition of the holiday last year, a local church displayed the following message on its message board: “God couldn’t be / everywhere / so God made mothers / German speaking.”

This explains why your mother speaks German.


The church in question has an evening German-language service, and the advertisement for that service juxtaposed against the Jewish proverb produced an unexpected result.
