There is a common scrund related to Germany that really annoys me. It is so prevalent that many people think that the fact is a scrund. What is it?

"The fact is a scrund"--you mean that this fact is mutually exclusive with the scrund, but people think the scrund is true and the fact is a scrund rather than the other way around?

Does it have to do with German history? Culture? Geography? Ethnicities in Germany? The German language? Nazis? Physical features of people who live there? Politics?

"The fact is a scrund"--you mean that this fact is mutually exclusive with the scrund, but people think the scrund is true and the fact is a scrund rather than the other way around? right, although I guess they're not entirely mutually exclusive.

Does it have to do with German history? thisish. Culture? also thisish. Geography? and thisish. Ethnicities in Germany? The German language? Nazis? Physical features of people who live there? Politics?

Are you yourself German and constantly discounting this scrund to ignorant foreigners? Anything to do with Bavaria? German political attitudes? Muslim Germans? Food? Beer? Pot?

Are you yourself German and constantly discounting this scrund to ignorant foreigners? I have German ancestry, but that is irrelevant. The scrund is actually favorable to Germany. Anything to do with Bavaria? no. German political attitudes? no.Muslim Germans? no. Food? yes. Beer? no. Pot? no.
Is it relevant to other countries? yes. Anything to do with the World Wars? no. A different war?no.

People thinking that 'Ich bin ein Berliner' means 'I am a doughnut'?

People thinking that there is ham in a hamburger?

Anything to do with the practice of eating throughout the day? (In Berlin, people seem to be eating all the time).

Anything to do with the nutritional content of foods? The stereotype of German food being high in fats? The place of origin of a particular food? Sauerkraut? A seasonal dish? A Christmas dish? The practice of eating certain foods in restaurants?

Is it a German dish, or just the way Germany treats a foreign dish? Would it be eaten for breakfast? Lunch? Dinner?

People thinking that 'Ich bin ein Berliner' means 'I am a doughnut'? no, but good guess.

People thinking that there is ham in a hamburger? no.

Anything to do with the practice of eating throughout the day? (In Berlin, people seem to be eating all the time). no.

Anything to do with the nutritional content of foods? The stereotype of German food being high in fats? The place of origin of a particular food? yes. Sauerkraut? A seasonal dish? A Christmas dish? The practice of eating certain foods in restaurants? no to rest.

Is it a German dish, or just the way Germany treats a foreign dish? neither, believe it or not. Would it be eaten for breakfast? Lunch? this is probably most common. Dinner? but this is common, too.

Does it have a German-sounding name/word in it, e.g. Krautzler`s cheese (not a real food), or something like that?
