comment Ursprung von “Nicht verzagen, … fragen”
Es gibt eine Fernsehserie aus 1964 namens "Nicht verzagen - Stangl fragen", aber ich weiß nicht, ob das der Ursprung dieser Redewendung ist, oder nur eine bekannt Redewendung als Titel verwendet wurde.

comment Wie funktioniert “Das König der Biere”?
Es ist auch eine Anspielung auf Warsteiners Werbespruch, "Eine Königin unter den Bieren".

comment What is the literal meaning of “Hau ab!”?
@Takkat: edited my answer, hope that clears it up. Now why this particular word has a Latin prefix and not a Germanic one, I don't know either.

comment What is the literal meaning of “Hau ab!”?
I agree that it's stronger than "Geh weg", but I'd say "Go away" is still a pretty good translation. English doesn't seem to have as many nuanced ways to tell someone to leave. It goes directly from "Go away" to various vulgarities.

comment Is it “als” or “wie” (or both) that is translated, “as”?
Don't do that, though! My dialect (Bavarian) does this, but it is WRONG and HORRIBLE and WRONG. ;)

comment Redewendung wenn man an ein fremdes Telefon gehen muss
"Bei" ist Standard, aber erfahrungsgemäß wird es oft überhört - wenn man sich angewöhnt, immer den eigenen Namen dazuzusagen, kann man sich viel Verwirrung sparen. ("Ich hab bei Schmidt gesagt! Stop, ich bin nicht Schmidt!")
