I KNEW Angie Was a Donut Muncher...

A picture of Chancellor Angela Merkel munching carpet a donut.
I always thought the lady was a bit 'special.'
Her first American donut.  I'm sure she's old enough to remember Kennedy's donut speech and I'm glad it made an impression on her.  It was especially diplomatic of her to realize that Amerikaner donuts beat the SCHEISE out of Berliners. I'm coming to grips with that, slowly.

I will wax poetic (non faggy) when I've gone out and munched a Berliner on Monday morning.

"Always start yer fucking week with a donut."
--Dunkin' Berliner


  1. So, just to the Dunkin Berliner donut a Dunkin Donut?

    I'm looking around and noticing those places here and there. One day I was thinking...I can't even remember the last time I had a donut! How sad is that?

    There's an ad that says Dunkin Donut's coffee is the BEST. Is that the same place, too?

    I want to be a part of it...

  2. Yes, my dunkin' berliner name is an attempt at combining fast food cultural references with Presidential urban legends. Y'know, like all bloggers trying to be clever. JFK's 'Ich bin ein Berliner' speech wherein 'Berliner' means both a donut and a citizen of Berlin. Some say he spoke correct German and was referring to being a Berliner citizen, one of the guys, etc., others say he said he is a Berliner Jelly donut. The jury is still out all these years later, but it should be obvious which side I'm on. His speech:

  3. Bit late but what the heck.

    This is a homage to the title story of the german Satire Magazine "TITANIC" that showed "Zonen-Gaby" in luck, saying :"My first Banana" with her holding a peeled cucumber.

    Merkel here is Zonen-Angie instead of Gaby and shes holding a Berliner (Pfannkuchen) instead of an "Amerikaner" (a different type of pastry)

  4. Thanks for the history and all. But I'm pretty sure a jelly donut is a jelly donut whether or not you call it 'pfannkuchen' or 'Amerikaner.' And THAT's why the image made it to my blog: Merkel sucking a donut. Heh.
