At least they weren't contaminated with Zyklon-B. My my the Germans have become fastidious in their old age. I think the German "green" obsession (and it is an obsession) is the Nazi Volk crap dressed up in modern form - the Volk communing with the forest spirits.K
don't forget german efficiency and economy, to use a useful stereotype
It is not only the Germans who are fastidious. Imagine the difficulties of German mashgichim (kashrut experts) who have to decide if dioxin is "dairy" or "parveh". If it is "parveh" it should not make pork meat "trefl", I mean more than it is.
Sometimes when you have a hybrid you get the best qualities of both, other times the worst.Yekkes (German Jews) were known to combine the worst qualities of Jews and Germans - the punctuality and adherence to formalities of the Germans with the religiosity and egotism of Jews.A Yekke joke - A Yekke decides to take the train from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. He books his trip weeks in advance and tells the travel agent, "There's only one thing I care about. I should be facing the same direction as the train is moving." On the day of the trip, he arrives at the station an hour before departure. But when he boards the train, he is dismayed to find that his seat is facing in the wrong direction – toward the back of the train. As soon as he gets to Jerusalem, he calls his travel agent to complain. The agent apologizes several times, and says, "Why didn't you ask the person sitting opposite you if he'd be willing to switch seats?" "I would have," said the Yekke, "but I was out of luck. The seat opposite mine was empty."Another - a young man arrives from German in the late '30s and recognizes a former professor of his in the street. He greets him in old world fashion - Herr Professor Docktor ,etc. The professor replies, "This is an egalitarian country, my son. Just call me adonai." A yekke and a chasid got married - - the chuppah began EXACTLY one half hour late. K
