Hmmm, freut mich, dass du mich erwähnst, aber der Link ist nicht von mir. Ich hab zu so einer ähnlichen Geschichte im Guardian verlinkt.

You would be goose-stepping down the center of Darmstadt if it wasn't for those ugly Americans. Just like the French, Germans know where to find the USA when they need us. Do you think grandpappy Weber's butt was saved by some American or was he serving his country as cook in the German army?

Have a nice day
