What is a German Shyster Video?

I know a shyster is slang for a lawyer. But I don’t get it in the context.

The context: The movie South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut. The boys had just gotten on the Internet and accidentally viewed a German porn video featuring Cartman’s mom, which disgusts them so much, they throw up.

Later that night, Cartman asks his mother, “Mom. if you were ever in a German shyster video, you’d tell me, right?”

Is there some sort of stereotype of GErman lawyers that I never heard about?

Scheisse video. Not Shyster. I’ll leave it as an exercise for the reader to figure out what Sheisse means.

Scheisse is German for shit. Scheisse videos are pornographic movies with people defecating on each other. And doing other things with feces even worse than that. It actually is a popular genre in German pornography.

“Um…sure, hon!”

now aren’t you glad you asked…

They’re popular?! :eek:

Hell, David Hasselhoff is popular over there… their liking for all things fecal knows no bounds…

Try searching the web for coprophilia, if you’re that interested.
