    You have single-handedly confirmed all my sinister suspicions about the Germans.

    It is ridiculous.
    So many things cannot be done because of national stereotypes...

    Britain is probably one of the only countries that doesn't complain - We are always portrayed as the posh sounding evil Villain in Hollywood films.

    I think the Arabs are way higher on that list. Followed closely by the Russians.

    We have more grievances!

    Somewhat ironic that the heavy handed decomissioning of this ad for such a stupid reason is closer to Nazism than what goes on in Berlin these days.

    I wonder how many of the complainants were actually German, or was it yet again Norris Cole-esque characters sitting at home being offended on behalf of the entire nation...?

    So maybe you should rather think about Kant, Nietzsche, Robert Koch, Thomas Mann, Baeyer, Einstein etc.?

    Being German...

    A hell of a lot of us do have a tendency to explode without warning. We also often sound like we're raging even when we're just getting into a conversation.

    C'est la vie.

    Germans are not stereotypically anything, because you can't apply a stereotype to 80 million unique individuals.
