I guess the Germans would feel even better if only a few dozen more Greeks would commit gruesome suicide in despair at the utter destruction of their economy.

The Germans will be raking in the dough once Angela Merkel breaks bad.

From a friend's Facebook, while traveling in Germany.  Well worth the read:

The Germanic slavish devotion to order never fails to amaze and amuse me. At our Salzburg hotel, we got free breakfast, but we ordered off a menu. Our Prussian waitress arrived at our table this morning, printed order form in hand. Here's the gist of our conversation:

Waitress: Would you like hot coffee or tea?
Me: I'd like orange juice and a bowl of muesli with milk, please.

W: First the hot drinks, ja?
Me: All I want is orange juice and a bowl of muesli, please.

W: Nein, nein, nein. We do zis in order, ja? Zo, what hot drink would you like, ja?
Me: I don't want a hot drink, thanks.

W: Gut! Zo, would you like some fruit juice maybe?
Me: I'd like orange juice and a bowl of muesli, please.

W: Ja, orange juice (checking the appropriate space on her order form). Zo, would you like some meats and cheese maybe?
Me: No. Just a bowl of muesli with milk, please. Nothing else.

W: Again, we do zis in order, ja? Do you want some eggs maybe?
Me: No thank you. Just a bowl of muesli with milk, please.

W: Would you like some cold cereal maybe?
Me: Yes, in fact, I'd like a bowl of muesli, please.

W: Zo, do you want your muesli mit some milk maybe?
Me: Yes, I would, thank you very much.

Really. This is true. On to Switzerland, ja?

Salzburg is in Austria and Prussians come from the northeast of Germany.

Sorry, I'm part German, therefore part anal.

I will now tell you a German joke.

"Knock, knock."
"Who's there?"
"A cannibal."
"What?!"
"You are about to die and be eaten."
"@sshole! I will murder you first!"
