"Ich bin ein Berliner!"

Yeah, so there's a story behind this. See, in Germany, when you say "Berliner", everybody thinks about the buns you see in the picture. So when Kennedy held his famous speach in Berlin, he actually claimed to be a sticky bun. Of course, the people of Berlin were too polite to laugh, lovely Germans.

PS - Would've been worse if he'd been in Hamburg.
