Not. Enough. Pigs.



So Germany did not have enough lucky pigs to get it done against Italy today. So sorry my lieblings, but remember, you're all champions to me. Except for the far right nationalists; you're on my shit list. No really, watch this video. Look at the pig raise the flag. How is he doing that? Is he turning some kind of crank with his mouth? Germany, obviously your livestock as well as your culture is very advanced. Also, you've done a great job hosting this thing. You should be proud. Better luck in 2010.

Wait, are you going to translate what Babe's saying here, or just leave us ogling the pig?

Picky. Picky. Picky. I first saw a clip of this video on Michelle Collins' blog but I think I can do a little bit better with the translation. (Remember Michelle Collins? She's the one we saw in H&M. I was freaking out and you thought I was being a total tool?)

Anyway, yes, pigs are considered lucky in Germany so saying "we need pigs" is like saying "we need some good luck".

Lyrics:

We need some pigs for Germany,
so every pass is good.
We need some pigs for Germany,
so every shot is a goal.
We need some pigs for Germany,
to get us to the final.
Because only with pigs for Germany, will Germany be the World Champion.

See? Makes perfect sense. Also, this song has been stuck in my head for four days. Seriously. I need an exorcism at this point.
