Doesn't know anything about German.

Is secretly snickering at somebody saying that the eszett is for 'ss', since that's what it's usually transcribed as, because they know that it came from the old-fashioned German script creating a ligature of 'sz', hence the name 'eszett', even though it is almost universally 'ss' today.
