Larry offers you to take his Ferrari for the weekend.

You know you REALLY made a fortune in AdSense, if Sergey asks if he can borrow YOUR Boing for the weekend.

Someone at Google splutters into his coffee, and hastily revises your CPC ;)

"Boing" = something you'd bounce on?
you probably meant "Boeing", the airplane

Is the final "g" in german pronounced as a "k" in english?

I can't think of any German word ending with "g" right now...

OK maybe I've watched too many Laugh-In shows. Let's try this one: if a german speaker pronounces an english word that ends in "g", what is the sound for that letter?

<added> or any german words where the "g" has an american "k" sound <added>

Hey, there is the famous German word "Achtung", known to US-Americans mostly from "Logan's heroes"... Only for parody reasons you pronounce it with a "k" - otherwise it's pronounced like - well - Boeing :-)

Maybe there IS a tendency to pronounce "g" more hard than English tongues may pronounce it. But words like ring, song, gang, bring etc. are so common in modern German vocabluary (and often an exact same German word exists) that most Germans probably pronounce them right.

Alright, so I shouldn't attempt international humor. :(

I was trying for "boink". Use your own imagination since the TOS won't let me explain it. :)
