I thought (because mein Deutsch in not perfect?) that Böhmermanns team actually did create the fake finger, in the original song.
A sad commentary that Merkel chose to side with the Turkish Dictator-n-Waiting.
Böhmermann sure knows how to press German buttons. In the Varoufakis song, where he pokes a finger in the eye of German culture, he claims a predilection for incest, though only in Saarland. When i first saw the original, I split my sides. It was so well done.
Ich Hab Polizei is equally brilliant.
I thought it was goats (Ziegen) in the Erdo poem.

His meta trolling is appreciated, though a little exhausting when it goes circular.
The police track ("Isch hab Polizei") caused a stir in the German hip hop world because the bourgeois son of a police officer was seen as making fun of the 'heartfealt' hip hop about the experience of the social margins. Quite the analogy to the US. Hip hop is still mostly a black business there. And a sizeable part of it is Turkish/Arab here.
