I’m telling you, the Krauts are up to something. They started hoarding all the steel and oil, too, just before they started World War II. Yeah, I don’t like it one bit.

Just because you’re paranoid, doesn’t mean that Jerry isn’t out to get ya.

guys if these comments are a joke it isn’t funny. We should not use ethnic slurs even in jest on this site!

@ Crabby

I don’t think “Kraut” and “Jerry” are ethnic slurs. We call Japanese “Japs” because it’s a shortened form. Kraut is short for Sauerkraut, which many Germans love to eat. It’s not like we’re using the “N” word, Crabby. After all the comments ferd and I have posted, you should know us better than that.

So why don’t you just turn around, go back to your trailer, and catch the rest of Springer.


I don’t watch Jerry Springer, so i will have to take your word for it, that it is on right now. At any rate, I am not interested in tuning in. It’s not my cup of tea.

Keep talkin’.

Meanwhile maybe you ought to read this…

Yes, I see someone has written on the internet that it’s a slur. You believe everything you read on the internet, Crabby? Hey, look:

Kraut is not an ethnic slur.

There you go, it’s on the internet now. Must be true. LOL. Look, I have nothing against Germans. Sure, they started a couple of World Wars that resulted in the untimely deaths of 80 to 120 million people (, but that’s in the past. Let bygones be bygones, I say.

Now, those damn Swiss. Yeah, that’s a different story.

Yeah, you gotta watch those “Hash brown eaters”! (Actual English translation of racial slur from [racial slur database].)
It’s true! It’s on the internet!

Mmmm… hash browns. :slight_smile:
