    Yes but figuratively, and for the purposes of humour stereotyping, it doesn't.

    Bitte is the most commonly used word in German I think.

    Nein. Ordnung ist der most used word. As in "alles in ordnung?" which is a phrase that has many uses. Literally it translates to 'everything in order?' but can mean 'everything OK?' 'did you get everything?' (e.g t the grocery check out) but most commonly it is used as the traditional form for 'happy birthday' and 'merry christmas' between parent and child.
