Is British a foreign language?

Yes.

Yes it is.

For example, when someone gets robbed, they didn't get "blagged." They got frakkin' robbed.

It's not "spirits." It's liquor.

Raven, vielleicht sollen wir nur auf Deutsch sprechen.

Daevan scheint durch es beeindruckt.

Doch, es gibt mir auch eine Ausrede zum Deutsch sprechen betreiben.

(Bitte vergebe meinen Grammatik, ich bin ein bischen rostig.)

Sprechender Deutscher gewinnt nicht Schokoladenkuchenpunkte...

SaintHazard - English correction: it's booze (as in "booze up"), unless your posh, then it's wine (or "drinkies"..)

Speak to Woeb... You will be schooled in the art of some pretty colorful phrases. He's like a master.

Schokoladenkuchenpunkte sind fuer Schokoladenkuchen. Ich bin keine kleine Maedchen!

Also, drinkies? Seriously? Drinkies?

Apparently my four-year-old niece is a British socialite.

Because gratuitous German makes everything more badass.
Actually, hold on. I think there's something wrong with the grammar here.

Any German speakers here, please correct me if I'm wrong, but...

Jenseits von Boese, jenseits von Gut is correct
Jenseits des Licht, jenseits den Schatten - "des" should be "die" and "den" should be "der." "Des" and "den," if I remember correctly, are plural accusative articles. These nouns are singular nominative.
Ich fordere den Zorn des Himmels is correct, "Zorn" is the direct object and "des Himmels" is a prepositional phrase.
Schlage diese boesen Seelen vor mir - "mir" is the unconjugated word for "me." I believe in a prepositional phrase, it should be "mich" because it serves as the indirect object... this one I'm not certain about, though, it could be correct.
Brech Goettlichen Hammer! is correct. It's a sentence fragment, but in this context, that's okay.
Ruhe in Frieden could be "im Frieden," because I believe the correct version is "in dem." Shortened to "im." Unless "Frieden" is masculine, not neuter. But I thought it was a neuter noun.

Again, if there are any German speakers here, please correct me if I'm wrong about any of these instances.

your German is pretty good and a far cry above the smatterings I remember.

It's super rusty. I spoke pretty fluently in high school, then promptly forgot most of it when I graduated.

That was four years ago, and my proficiency has been steadily declining ever since.

Oh, how I long for a German speaking friend with whom to practice.

For those times you want to tell off someone without getting in trouble.
