Welcome to Germans have no humor and yes, the question mark is on purpose. You know I’m posting on Wednesdays, how wordless that will be… oh well.
I’ve warned you at the beginning of the year that I am planing on doing a few recycling posts. Not because I’m lazy, it actually takes a while to find all the old photos, but because older posts don’t need to be forgotten. It is an unwritten law of the blogging world that your content has a rather short lifespan, however, that doesn’t mean newer followers shouldn’t see it. So, I am taking you on a ride on the be kitschig train and hopefully I’ll make you laugh. Otherwise, my point is gonna fall completely flat.
Here we go:
Random vandalism in public space near the David Hasselhoff Museum. They are even petioning renaming the street to David Hasselhoff Straße. Clearly, Germans have no humor.
I realy wish I had taken a photo of the entire food truck. They sold fish rolls, which are the bomb if you’re in the mood for them. Click for more Spreewald pictures
Dog Parking at the grocery store
Admittedly, not all of our election posters looks like that, but especially in Berlin we see some pretty creative posters. Does it help with the outcome? That’s another story. At least, we shall not forget.
While the grocery store Kaisers actually does not exist anymore, I too took these baskets home. I did return them though. Mostly. To me this print was pure genius.
Can you name a fountain with peeing animals near you? Devil Fountain in Magdeburg
When the store decorator gets excited…
You cannot be more orange than that.
Due to its quality, this picture never made it into any post, but our public transport in Berlin has a marvelous marketing team. There are many distancing versions out there and they change repeatedly.
Now, last exhibit. This was really the reason for this post. The German Bravo has been catering to teens since 1956 (and brought us a controversy or two).
Since our free pharmacy magazine mostly caters to retirees and many Germans believe life doesn’t start until you’re 66 (old Schlager by Udo Jürgens), for their jubilee edition they put out a Rentner Bravo; including the latest Virus news and Viagra questions.
Now, you tell me, do Germans have no humor?!? Please don’t hang me out to
dry wrinkle. (Get it, get it? Oh well…)
