Die Amis sind unsere Freunde.

English Translation

The Yanks are our friends.

What is this supposed to mean?

“Amis” is German slang for “Americans” (actually short for “Amerikaner”).

“Yanks” is (outdated) English slang for “Americans” (actually short for “Yankees”).

I guess Clozemaster is just trying to compare different slang terms across languages.

Since we’re on the topic, my favourite is the German word “Inselaffe”, which refers to a person from England. It literally means “island monkey” :smiley: I know it’s an insult, but I laugh every time I hear it.
