German Names & Hints through the Game

It's not the first GTA which had german wrods in it or funny jokes,
but in GTAV there is so much, which had me wondering WHY?

Ok the Boots named "Hinterland" yeah ok i get the reference,
and there is much more like this but what i wanna know is why are there so many dirty hints in german in GTAV (and GTA4 etc.)?

I mean "Pi▀wasser", "Dusche Gold", "Gruppe 6", yeah it's very funny
but why loves Rockstar to use german words for mocking american products?
(or some part of the american culture)

German words are funny, maybe because of the sound of the words sound funny (Gruppe 6)

But they also like to make jokes about other countries too, in the Pisswasser commercial they say: "ya oughta speak english if ya like it here so much, not spanish, no chinese, no british, hell no fucking dutch." "Fuck the dutch!"

They especially make fun of the Dutch because of Heineken. :P

It's usually done for the puns, because a lot of German words sound a lot like English words, and the products and companies that they are parodying use German names anyways (Well besides the parody of Group 4: Gruppe Sechs, which is just done for the punning).

Gruppe 6,

Gruppe = Group
6 = Six
If you say the german fast you'll get Gruppensex (groupsex),
which i'm sure is meant this way.

Pisswasser is a joke of budweiser.

Faggio is a joke of Piaggio Vespa.

I always assumed it was cause of the simile.

Pisswasser = Pisswater in my head which is a common joke here about bud. I missed the Gruppe 6 one oddly lol
