Thank God For The Germans

Thank God for the Germans I always say. Why? Because they're the one race on the planet you can safely rag on and no-one cares. Really, has anyone ever got in trouble for saying mean things about Germans? No. Those war-starting, master race claiming, poop-obsessed makers of sadistic porn have it coming.

So... meet "Kackel Dackel" (or Sh*t Wiener Dog) - the hit German toy for Christmas. You can watch the joy in your kinders' faces as they shovel food down a plastic dog's gullet and then catch fake sh*t as it flies out of it's butthole. Seriously.

Naturally, this weird but quintessentially German toy sparked a few comments about Germans in general. My favorite:

"Jesus Christ, the Germans are twelve kinds of f*cked up. And as this video shows, it starts in childhood. Always has. Go read the original versions of the Brothers Grimm fairy tales, not the Disneyfied versions, and you’ll find endless stories of limb hacking, head chopping, and pushing people into ovens. Seriously, it’s pretty much a straight line from the Brothers Grimm to the Holocaust."

You can't really argue with that...



  1. Hey Herbert, my name is John. I read a lot of blogs on religion and prayer and I've i feel like I've ended up here once before. I'd love to hear your thoughts about this prayer exchange website I thought it was an interesting idea and would be curious to hear what you (or other Christians) think about it

    I'll check back here in the next day or two, thanks & God bless

  2. This Dutch guy I used to know once told me that the reason there were no German jokes was because there was absolutely nothing funny about Germans.
    I've used the same line on cops.

    Maybe you could post your opinion of ""

  3. It's amazing how a relatively small group of people completely fucked up an entire century. Two World Wars...which ultimately led to the Cold War and the formation of Israel, among other things. Now they are content to just drink beer, eat schnitzel, and play with scheisse toys. It's funny to see them at the beach in Holland. They go early and each family ropes off a small section of the beach so that people know it is their area. The Dutch say its their overwhelming urge to conquer something...even if its just a couple square meters of beach for the day.

  4. This post made me think of a Dylan Moran clip I was watching the other day.

    But about the fairy tale comment etc. Got to say there's no culture more violent than American culture, which is promoted and exported around the world. We are constantly bombarded with films, tv progs from the USA full of people running around blowing each other's brains out with various kinds of weaponry whilst all the time subtly conveying the message that this is somehow heroic and the way to go for anyone who wants to be cool. It begins when young with stuff like the Teenage mutant Ninja Turtles (well, back in the day) and carries on all the way to stuff like Bruce Willis. German TV is pretty mild by comparison. Often brutally unbearable as entertainment, yes, but less inclined to glorify violence.

  5. When I worked at a movie theater as a college student in the 90s, a woman dropped off her preteen kids to see an R movie...can't remember what it was offhand. When buying their tickets she asked me why it was rated R. I said due to extreme violence and language. She said "oh, that's long as there's no nudity. Have fun kids!" It was at that moment that I realized how fucked up American culture is.

  6. I remember thinking something similar some years back when Michael Jackson's sister (can't remember her name) got her tit out at some award ceremony or other and it caused quite a furore in the US, with condemnation from religious groups and all sorts, yet, at the same time, people seemed quite happy to watch hours and hours of glamourised violence without batting an eyelid. All at once, the juxtaposition suddenly appeared incredibly bizarre.
