Tell us we’re from Germany
There is a famous German movie telling the story of a group of Bavarians that win the Olympic bobsledding medal in the 1950s. Asked where they are from, they reply: “We are from Bavaria. That’s near Germany.” Exactly.
We are not connected in any way to these strange northern Germans, who drink beer in ridiculously small 0.3-liter glasses. Heck, we don’t even speak the same language! Bavarian is more closely related to Austrian dialects than to any of the northern-German ones. We might be bound to Germany thanks to incompetent politicians, but one day we will be free again!
