The problem with German is that it takes forever to say anything.  By the time you get to the verb the other person in the conversation has died of old age.

There is Ordnung in German!
When I find in some English book a passage which can have double 
meaning, I look into the German translation, if it is available, and 
in spite of that my knowledge of German is even much worse than of 
English, almost invariably I find there a clear expression. I cannot 
be sure that the German translator understood English expression 
correctly, but at least he succeeded to express his understanding
