« on: January 02, 2009, 11:50:34 AM »
thank you mr sim for accepting my contribution for your contest ;-)

http://reverent.org/painting_contest_entries_2009.html?picture_to_show=130

btw.

you know what we here (hessen/germany) call "berliners"?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berliner_(pastry)

*g

if kennedy knows that at the time he used he words ... "i am a berliner"???

questions over questions ... and nobody asked him - filled with strawberry jam or apricot?

maybe we can give a answer to this historical questions here ... sometimes ...

According to the wikipedia article it's called  "doughnut" in English. I don't think that many people know that Berliner is a name for a doughnut. I suspect that even Germans when they hear "Ich bin ein Berliner" do not think of  pastry. Besides, I see a pizza, not  doughnuts in your picture. So I don't think we shoul add this to its description.

we use to have our birthday cake here with a beer like on the photo - but the other thing is ... dont ask in a bakery in berlin for a berliner ;-)

for the description of the artwork use some of the key-words out of the other topic ... maybe terror, al qaida, holy war, beer, atomic bomb birthday cake etc. ... and make a short description out of it ... ja - would be nice ... kennedys words will get or become a new meaning ... good idea!
