Germannen and womannen from Germany....

Everything is organised...........

everything in order........

Europe: The Germannen             -                The Germwomannen
This is where they all come from....!
Of course they are not all "mannen" there exist "womannen" as well!

I have to be rather careful what I say on this subject, after all, I'm privileged to receive my Pensions from this wonderful country, but objectivity (and humour) is allowed, although the "Germannens" are not well known for their sense of humour!
This isn't really surprising, in view of their overall history, one would think of them as mainly a war loving race, but in fact it's a strange thing about the Germans' - they have provided some of the World's most loved painters, composers, writers as well as the most hated Dictators!
In the more recent past, the Germann has come from this:
to being one, if not THE pillar of Democracy and the European Institutions.
Doubtless, the Germann is not a simple character, rather more complicated, particularly for the British.

The reason for this is simple - they are too similar!
Their histories are intertwined, from the roots and sources of their Pagan beliefs, through the origins of their "Royal" families right up to their love of similar things, such as Soccer, pretty bad cooking, and blonde ladies with (preferably) blue eyes.
To be beaten, in anything, by a Germann, is the ultimate disgrace for a Britain, and vice-versa!
Witness the fact that heated arguments still go on about a famous goal in 1966, even now - 45 years later!
More common ground is found on the subject of femininity - tastes and preferences being so similar that the British adore the physical aspect of "Gerwomanenn" and have vague ideas of the strict discipline occasionally administered by the same........if you're lucky..........!

Of course, there are other common meeting points between the nations, not only Germann and British. Most children - worldwide - have been scared out of their skin at some point or other in their lives by stories about "nieder" stuff such as:

Grimm's "Fairy Tales" - nothing to do with the gay scene, more a collection of monstrous creatures, doing terrible things to all and sundry, but they have existed for centuries, and are still going strong! I occasionally wonder if the English word "grim" has some association!
Bach and Beethoven, Wagner, Chopin, Mahler interspersed with Hitler, Goebbels and Goering - throw in a little Marlene Dietrich and Hildegard Knef - and you've almost got the general make up!
Throw in a few sausages a couple of cabbages, and the scene is perfect!
The British call sausages "bangers" (I would have thought the traditional accompagnment "baked beans" more qualified for this name) probably to avoid using the Germanic word "wurst" which covers all of the thousands of different German sausage styles. The word "kraut" just means cabbage, and is not really an insult, like the word "pudding" - often used in Germany for something else....!

Impossible to analyse!

Nothing - again - to do with the gay scene, but wouldn't you prefer to stay friends with someone who drives around in

One thing I've never understood about the modern Germanny is why they kept the same National Anthem after their last World troubles! 
Sure, they changed the text, but certain members still sing, with gusto, the old paroles...!
Just another one of those "make-up" mysteries, but then I've never found out WHY the same anthem is used in Great Britain (England) as in Lichtenstein, nor have I ever found out who started first...!
Just to top it all up, the musical melody in question is also called "AMERICA"!
Understand where/who can....You see - it's not only the "Germanns" who are complicated...!
