OK, for you kids who don't know anything about JFK. During the Berlin airlift, he wanted to show solidarity with the cut-off city, saying "Ich bin ein Berliner." He thought it meant "I am citizen of Berlin." It turned into a joke, though, because in Germany, a "Berliner" means a jelly doughnut. They definitely have doughnuts in Germany, though they are more likely to come from a konditorei than a bacherei. And plenty of coffee -- who could forget J.S. Bach's "Coffee Cantata"?
