GUEST,Reinhard Origins: His Name Is Andrew (David Ackles) (24) RE: Origins: His Name Is Andrew (David Ackles) 15 Apr 11

Anglo, my words were definitely were not meant as malicious or racist and I wonder how they can be interpreted this way.

I understand that the game that I as a German know as "Stille Post" is called "Chinese Whispers" in English. I have never heard the term "German whispers" for this before and understood Jerry Simon's use of this phrase as making fun of my poor English skills in transcribing Martin Carthy's words. That's why I responded that I still believe my transcription is what Carthy sang and not what David Ackles' verses originally were. (In the meantime I found Ackles' version on YouTube and added his lyrics to my page too.)
