What did the boxheads ever do for us?

Recently in discussion with someone, defending our beer swilling, leather wearing, sausage sucking european chums. I have a great respect for most Germans; they're not our natural enemies like the French - just a family feud then a jumped up Austrian Corporal.

So, a list of what the boxheads have contributed to the world;

I'll start the bidding with: Wobbly, Currywurst

And unfortunately BMW and Mercedes (but the internal combustion engine, followed by the diesel engine was a nice touch)

(dark beer)

mmmmmmmm, aaaaalllllltttttt............

and square tin hats; (you can't put a square peg in a round hole)
Frikadelles and Weizenbier (Banana beer) oh, and the chambers...
Asbach brandy :)


Harzer Käse (mit Kümmel), Herbert Grönemeyer, Aldi, Lidl, how to kick penalties at World Cups, Goethe, Kafka, the Royal Family, Claudia Schiffer to name a few.

Gut wrenching foreskin splitting hardcore porn ;-)
Golden handbags, Warsteiner, bockies, bratties, curriewurst, porn, more porn, even more porn, appelkorn, Korn, motorways, blitzkreig, ethnic cleanzing, lederhosen, crap german music, porn. 'nuf said,

I'll get my glasses


two words:



(but porn, salami, assorted other alcoholic beverages, LOA, speed limit free autobahns and German cars do sweeten the deal)
We could thank them for levelling London and Coventry..... shame they can't revisit and do Slough and Liverpool

They also Gave us Herfy and Mercedes Benz
Alllow us to drone on sanctimoniously ad nauseum about our ability to prevail in the face of over whelming odds. The righteous overcoming the wrongdoer. Et cereta, et cetera.

Except of course when the all blacks turn up.
