Totally True Tidbits About Germany
Germany is a medium-sized European country, with approximately the same square-mileage and speed limit laws as Montana.
Germans invented the form of music known as "opera". It soon spread to Italy and Japan, which led to the formation of the "Axis of Warble".
Attempts to spread opera to other nations led directly to WWII
The practice of cooking ground-up meat and serving it on a bun began in the German city of Cheeseburg.
The German city of Hamburg is populated entirely by lactose-intolerant former Cheeseburgians
Despite what you might infer from its name, the Dutch oven was actually a German invention, as were the Gypsy and Jew ovens.
Like Iraq, Germany was home to numerous military geniuses who were eventually
killed by Americans.
Hitler was the first dictator in modern history to prove that a bad moustache is no match for American military might.
Hussein was the latest.

Germany is known the world over for its fine cuisine, in much the same way that France is known for its battlefield prowess.
The colors of the German flag are black, red, and yellow. It was originally just red and black, but the yellow stripe was added to commemorate their frequent wars with France when "the River Rhine would run yellow with the blood of French soldiers".
Because of the location of the Swiss Alps along Germany's southern border, it's impossible for tornados to form in Germany. The only weather hazards faced by the nation are flooding and occasional drifts of radioactive ash from Russian nuclear power plants.
Like Americans, Germans are allowed to vote in their national elections at age 18. Also like Americans, 18-year-old Germans spend election day at home with their PlayStations.
Postage stamps in Germany celebrate national heroes such as Werner von Braun, who invented the liquid-fueled rocket and lederhosen.
People of German heritage frequently celebrate family get-togethers with such German traditions as bland potato salad, warm beer, and hairy-backed women.
Unlike America, Germany has no legal drinking age, because German parents think it's cute when their toddlers drink beer and stumble around.
If you have information about Germany that America needs to know, call the Department of Homeland Security, or leave it in the comments.
