Crackin' Cheese, Hoff!

I'm coining a new term:
mentos [`men-tōs]
adj.
describing an object or activity that is so super cheesy that it reeks of German advertising.

Example:
David Hasselhoff's body of work is so mentos.







Not to be mistaken with Mentos, (note capital "M"). Mentos have the awesome power to get ANYONE , who enthusiastically pulls the candy out of their pocket and pops one into their mouth, out of ANY sticky situation. DooDooDooDooDooDooDoowAHHHHHHH!

Autsch! What terrible fake German!

On Hasselhoff: When are you Americans ever going to get that The Hoff was big in Deutschland not for Baywatch but for Knight Rider - and admittedly, for some terrible singing. But I'm sure a bunch of y'all keep fond memories of certain supersmart black car in a secret little corner of your hearts.

Between my horrible 6th grade German & K8's Babelfish(ed) postcard, I thought we did a pretty good faux Deutsche!

And in our offline banter she makes a great point:
"...deutsch liebe for der hoff CANNOT be explained away on the retro coolness of knight rider -- David Hasselhoff was embraced on the german pop charts as well."

I think people pretty much forgot about the Hoff once Pam and twins arrived on the beach. So he can barely claim fame to Baywatch.
