out of jokes, in the school they taught me it's called Eszett (S-Z), or Schaafes-Es (Sheep's S ??????)

when they taught (?) me German in high school, not only there was no wikipedia, but the internet itself didn't even exist

I thought for a minute then that schaaf was sheep, which would be interesting because there is a bloke who works for my company with that surname :lol:
