    It’s some form of Bavarian, isn’t it? (Wennsd mi frogst, bist du a Preiß auf Lebenszeit).

  2. BG says:

    Austrian German? Definetely a dialect of German.

  3. Adam says:

    Rhyw fath o Almaeneg, Some sort of German

    I would say Schwerbisch? maybe even Schweiz deutsch. ?

  4. Catherine Willikers says:

    It’s some kind of german equivalent of the Mexican comic that dresses like a bumble bee.

  5. Simon says:

    MM got it – it is indeed Bavarian (Bayerisch/Bairisch), a dialect of German spoken in Bavaria (Bayern/Baiern).

    The recording comes from YouTube is part of an episode of the Simpsons (De Huabas) in Bavarian.

  6. Strika says:

    The Simpson?? LOL. That’s why it sounded so funny!

  7. MM says:

    The Preiß meaning Prussian was a clue. Austrians might talk about Piefkes, but afaik only Bavarians talk about Prussians (i.e. the rest of the world.)
