The Power of German Engineering

Oh, yeah.  You betcha.

Well, yeah.  There's that, too.

  1. They make good knives too. Their beer isn't bad either, but if it sets too long unopened you will see floaty things in it. That's just not right.

  2. I guess all of their talented engineers didn't make it to the U.S. after the war. If they did, that awesome BMW would be a Chevy...

  3. I burst out laughing... such a simple yet hilarious pair of captions. Although that tank probably took a whole lot of thought and skill to put together, the contrast with the sleek beemer is too much.

    You: No, I believe it's a Panzer.

  8. I am the proud owner of a kraut-mobile. The VW New Beetle. Original Beetle was commissioned by Hitler, I know, I know. But they're so cute! Don't hate me because I'm cute. Well, my car, anyway.

  10. Such a manly post! lol

    I agree with Ruth, their beer is awesome but while I lived there, I usually drank the wine. So delicious!

  11. @Elsie: I had more than my share of brutally huge glasses of beer at Munich's Hofbrauhaus. Ja, ja.
    @Bersercules: Would make rush hour all the more easier to deal with.
    @Shockgrubz: I'm gonna use that one.
    @Dawn: A friend of mine's father had a red beetle. It was a great car. Even if it did have a tendency to run down French pedestrians.
    @Mark: And their cars into things I can't afford.
    @Tony: Especially visitors to the beer halls.
    @Matthew: I know. All I can afford is a POS Dodge Dakota.
    @Gorilla: BA DUM BUM. Zank you, zank you very much. Please make for tipping mit der vaitresses. Und keep laughink.
    @Mike: Imagine that tank on the Autobahn. Gott in himmel!
    @Pat: And made of plastic.
    @Ruth: Floaty things? In beer made in Germany? Too many wiseguy responses to count. So, I'll let that softball slide across the plate.

    1. And THAT'S exactly why I don't own one. It has nothing to do with the price. I don't own a tank, either. It's a bitch to park at the grocery store. And it makes that nice Russian family next door nervous.

  18. Interesting juxtaposition, Al. I'd advise against wearing your tightey-whiteys in either. (Go commando.)

  20. You have to way up the pro's and cons

    option 1

    Pro - Looks great and goes fast

    Con - spend all your time sitting in traffic

    option 2

    Pro - Boom - what traffic?

    Con - I'm guessing the girls it attracts wear jackboots and have more muscles than me, hygiene problems and wear big pants....

    1. Yeah, but with a tank you can park anywhere you want. Like Poland.
