How did I miss that one. In previous years we learned that Germans like to mutilate and eat wieners, so there ya go

The Joke: Q: How do you turn a Trabant into a sports car?

A: Put sneakers in the glove compartment!

Why It's Funny: The Trabant was the best-selling car in the former East Germany. The ride is a punchline for its cheapness, due in no small part to its grossly underpowered engine and plastic body.

Well, the Alpine tribes hardly represent Germany.

Cool pictures though.

German trivia:
Director Rainer Werner Fassbinder, free jazz titan Peter Brötzmann, and krautrockers Amon Düül (II) all used to hang out and drink with members of the Baader-Meinhof Group.
I feel that there is a fascistic element, for example, in the Rolling Stones . . .

I've studied the phenomenon of neo-provincialism in self-isolating online communities but this place takes the fucking cake.

I always assumed that every German of the time was either a member of or hung out with Baader-Meinhof..

No raccoons, cannibals, Scorpions, or Bavarians, but false murder confessions and identities can be whimsical if allowed to ferment for three decades.
