I can assure you there Hamburgers in Hamburg, and the Hamburg aboriginees will not feel insulted or worse if you order a Hamburger in Hamburg.

Now in Berlin that's a completely different situation when ordering a Berliner at a baker's shop...people tend to claim they don't know what you want, and finally before you leave the shop (they urgently need your money, you know), they find out that it's Pfannkuchen you want...not that this Berliners were ever made in a pan! Stupid lot!

And yes, Frankfurters live in Frankfurt, trust me on that one, but they have strong objections if you want to eat them!

You actually do? I never heard someone doing that joke over here.
There's nothing wrong with that expression. It's correct in my sense of grammar. Of course you can be nit picking and say he's saying he is a jelly donut. But i never heard that here.

There is one problem with airbus. Though their products are engineering marvels they lack passion, completely.

When I had my first German language class in Germany, this was one of the jokes our teacher told us.

He should have said "Ich bin Berliner" without the article ein.

no, THAT would simply have been wrong. And do NOT forget that JFK referred to the Roman phrase "I am a Roman" . That teacher might rather have explained to you that "ein Pariser" has TWO meanings !

I prefer the Swiss term for that sausage which is "Wienerli" which is equivalent to "small Viennese" !

aaaaw , c'mon , you can't just leave it like that - spill the beans .


BTW , when I was a very small child and I heard the word 'parasite' for the first time I assumed it meant someone from Paris ( absolutely no offence intended to inhabitants of one of the most beautiful cities I have ever been to )

Make that Wiener or Wienerle, and you'll find it in Germany, too!

Though I seem to remember, that "Wiener" has a totally different meaning in English...something to do with the male organ...ahem...

B) "ein Pariser" is a preservative

aaah , is that preservative - like in English - as in "a chemical in your food to keep it from going stale" ? or 'preservatif' comme en Francais as in "condom" ?

I have read some time ago that the name of the food "Hamburger" has to do with the German immigrants coming to the United States by ship.
As a snack for that long journey these immigrants usually brought a roll with a "Frikadelle" (as the Hamburger people call fried minced meat, Berliners would say "Boulette" and the people from Saxony "Beef-Steak" ).
A "Hamburger" is not a speciality of Hamburg it is called that way because the German immigrants - that came from all over the country - started their Atlantic crossing usually at Hamburg.

Strange that they call them Frankfurters in Vienna and Vienners in Frankfurt. I noticed that when I ordered Vienners with potato salad in Vienna, the waitress told me that they call them Frankfurters.

So if your mom is from Hamburg and your dad is from Frankfurt, does that make you something in between a Hamburger and Frankfurter?

Wasn't the guy who more or less "created" the hamburger from Hamburg? He immigrated to the US to sell his product there. The same thing with Heinz ketchup.

That truly made my (very young) day!!! Hamburg Aborigines ...classic!!! Just hope the Ozzies don't feel offended.


Although, if you order a "Hamburgerin" or a Hamburg Girl in the wrong/right places you better watch the F... out or have your $$$ at hand. And watch out even more if you dare to complain she isn't genuinely Hamburgess, but from eastern Europe or Albania.

Prost!  Wink
Kölsch is Kölsch (I'm an alt drinker BTW), and Echtes Kölnisch Wasser is 4711 cologne.

The hamburger was created by German immigrants and was named after Hamburg, but not the one everyone is thinking of. The hamburger was first created in Hamburg, New York, a suburb of Buffalo.


It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems with just potatoes.
