Berlin is the capital of Germany. Germany is not the capital of Europe, but it wants to be. The populations lives there because they have to, and the demographics are confusing. Berlin is full of greed, as the financial districts are big, long and tied to the miserable Euro currency. Berlin has other districts as well, and the Germans live there with their germs. Nobody knows how many, Germans can't count. German poet Bertolt Brecht once wrote a poem about Berlin, that described the city in its entirety:
hurly and swirly,
Berlin is a bin
full of nothin'
dark and grim
Bertol Brecht and some other artists lived there, while the Berlin Wall stood tall and proud. Today, East and West Berlin has been united into one big block of concrete with some nice bars in between. Berlin has a vast and complicated infrastructure; they have long roads, a subway called U-Bahn, and lovely walking lanes where Angela Merkel likes to take a stroll and watch the hobos.
Berlin was first called Fraggle Rock and was founded by Kryptonians in days gone by. Later, they named their settlement Dingo Kidneys, after a favorite dish imported from Australia. Later they named it Berlin taken from the song "Summer in Berlin" by the Utopian group Alphaville, to avoid confusion.
In the year -37 B.C., most of the buildings were stolen by greedy Nicaraguan rebels, and were used in the construction of the capital of Babylon, until King Leonidas lead 315.3 spartans in the famously televised "Pillaging of Portugal" and finally the Vikings PWNed Berlin.
In more recent years, Berlin has been the centre of the global condom network, which is the basis for all world commerce. It is also the centre of the largest pornography industry outside of Japan. Moral: lose an important war, and you become a pornographer.
Berlin underwent urban renewal during World War II, when the Western Allies dropped milkshakes all over the city. In April 1945, the city was taken by the Soviets, just as the war ended. The Red hordes, insensitive as ever to endangered species, weren't satisfied with just raping all of the inhabitants and decided to move in. The Soviets made themselves right at home, bringing their strange traditions with them, living almost exclusively on a diet of whale meat and gorilla piss. In the end, they decided to use the detritus of their cooking to mark the boundaries of West Berlin.
This structure was known as the Baleen Wall, and like other Soviet creations demonstrating their architectural genious and eye for art, everyone was afraid to tell them that it looked like shit. Still, most acknowledge that it was a noble attempt to reinvent the dated "Great Wall of China" image and give it a kick.
The Berlin Wall was originally constructed in 230BC by Burmese citizens lead by Hadrian whose architectural successes to that date were comprised of Stonehenge, Hadrian's Wall, and the first toilet. The monument was designed by Hadrian "to show those Chinese that they weren't the only ones who could build a kick ass wall thing", and thus to rouse the spirit and the patriotism in the German people. (in fact the Chinese wall is 1000 times longer, and even if the whole of Germany was built into a brick, it would still be 100 times shorter, when they discovered that, their morale dropped so much that it caused mass depression in Germany.
Now the wall is gone, so people can go for a stroll without the need for ladders.
Before Germany had untied, the East Germany and West Germany had a lot of arguments over taking custody of Berlin. Several long and grueling snowball fights were fought to determine its status, spanning nearly thirty years, from 1958 to 2881. As the Soviet Union began to eat its own shit, Ronald "Ray Gun" Reagan came to Berlin and finished all the commies off...execution style...with his fists and girl scout cookies.
Berlin is the birthplace of deep-dish pizza and is referred to as the "Land of Toothbrush Moustaches". It has a largely successful economy with its trade of Swastika merchandise.
There are many interesting sights in Berlin including, but limited to:
- The Berlin Lederhosen (strange trousers from bavaria) , Pumpernickel (cool black bread), Bratwurst (yum!), Tuba (instrument and penis), Beer and Scheißeporn Emporium - for all your German stereotype needs.
- The Brandenburg Gate - Have you seen that show, Stargate? The Brandenburg Gate's like that, except it just leads back to Berlin.
- The Reichstag Building - Bring your own marshmallows and frankfurts!
- The Bismark Memorial - Pilgrims place gifts of pickles and schnapps at the feet of the statue of this great man, in the hope that his ghost will cure them of Austrians.
- The former East German Parliament House - It was from the steps of this historic building that Nikita Khruschev made his historic speech I am not a Berliner, and neither is Kennedy, who does he think he's fooling and you, yes you, the blonde in the fourth row, what are you doing tonight?
- The Quaint German Sex Pervert District - I tell you, the more straight laced they look, the more straight laced they ain't.
- The Berlin Airlift Memorial - Comemerating the occasion in 1906 when Berlin was lifted into the air and transported all the way from India.
- The Famous
Germanic CafesDoenerkebap on Kaiser Wilhelmstrasse Hitlerstrasse Stalinstrasse Kaiser MingstrasseTuerkenstrasse.
- Berlin is home to the Blitz, one of the premier teams of the MLB. During the 1940s, the golden era of Major League Bloodbath, millions of spectators across Europe saw the Blitz play.
The justly famous Berliner monument, consisting of a large, jelly filled donut. The population of West Germany was astounded to hear President Kennedy's historic announcement that he was a popular confectionary treat. They turned to each other and said, "That American President, he's not so smart is he? He just said he is a donut. Maybe the Russians are a better bet- they may be Commies, but at least they aren't delusional." The grateful German population erected this monument to Kennedy's ineptitude. It is kind of stale, but they keep it around because stupid American tourists will still pay good money to see it.
There are a lot of smugly self satisfied "expats" from America who are here working on "important" (but rather vague) "cultural" projects, i.e. unlistenable "dance" music, unreadable books, piss poor poetry, etc. The German word for these people is "Lebenskünstler (in)". They are actually not all that interesting, to tell the truth and it is probably best to ignore them in the hope that they will go back to whatever Godforsaken dump spawned them.
The Berlin Metro famously extends to Paris and across the English Channel to London, making it the world's longest system. Its ornately decorated stations will take your breath away, leaving you as most Berliners are: dead on the inside.
