“I AM (NOT) A JELLY DONUT”

Those old enough to remember JFK’s trip to Berlin during the height of the Cold War will never forget his famous and defiant line: ” ich bin ein Berliner.” For years there was a claim the young President had made a horrible gaffe, that what he said actually translated as: “I am a jelly donut.” His words sparked the great jelly donut arms race, with both East and West competing for years to make the sweetest and largest “berliner”. The Soviet Union finally collapsed under the weight of its hugely subsidized, and inefficient, military pastry industrial complex. In the pastry war the French took the lead for the West, turning out every more delicious, and caloric, concoctions capable of bringing entire Soviet divisions to their knees.

This really isn’t true. But it sure makes a wonderful story. What Kennedy said had nothing to do with donuts… And I made up the pastry war. The French never win at anything…

This post is just a dumb, juvenile excuse to post pictures of good looking naked frauleins from Germany (at least according to their Flickr tags). These girls may be sugary sweet, but no one would ever accuse them of being jelly donuts!
