absolutely adore Germans just hollering "MEAL" before digging into a meal

@hyggend it's... not really a pun... it's just a weird habit many (primarily southern, I believe) germans have

@anarchiv i'm going to Southern Germany in 3 months. I now know how to greet people thank u :>

@hyggend haha have fun! where are you going, if I may ask? I rarely spend time in the South, otherwise I'd invite you to a drink or something

@anarchiv Tuttlingen, actually! I'm going for student exchange and I'll be staying there for a few months. (Actually in Baden Irndorf but I'll be going to school in Tuttlingen)

@hyggend oh dear, deepest Black Forest huh. it's set in a lovely landscape but entirely foreign to me, the closest I ever got was Freiburg (one of my favourite places in the whole wide country btw, make sure to pay it a visit if you have the chance)

@anarchiv I absolutely will. Thanks for the suggestion :D

@hyggend just found this lol. it's a pretty accurate depiction

the guy talks in a prominent Bavarian accent btw

if y'all ain't makin this up, this is truly the best and I need it in my life

@merlose_loire @the_all I swear it's true, you come into a room around lunch time and greet folks with "Mahlzeit!" (translates more accurately to 'happy meal time' but literally it just means Meal!)

amazing. also in earnest that sort of makes a type of sense! 🌈👍🌈

@bastardlesbian @merlose_loire Or, if you're either constantly unaware abt time of day or just don't care abt that (like most of my social circles) you can say it whenever

@bastardlesbian Doesn't even have to be right before dinner. It is also simply said during lunchtime as a greeting.
