Curiously, Böhmermann is from Bremen, so I know people who went to school with him, or at least were aware of his earlier history. I find him preposterously entertaining, and insightful... though I only watch selected videos, and none recently.

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.
