Munich elections. A crappi day for Seppi.
Should I trash the War Memorial?

Hamburger makes Pizza!


Jovial fellow expat Ian in Hamburg, is a frequent comment byline on DüE. He's also a total fake, but it's on TV, so that's OK, right?

He's Canadian, but in the near-enough-is-good-enough world of showbiz, he's posing as an American pizza chef in a televised international bake-off. This contrived contest aims to decide who makes the world's best pizza--Italians, Americans or Germans. Ian presented TV news in Hong Kong in a previous life, so obviously the producers opted for on-screen poise (and tastiness) over the strict truth.

If you live in Germany, catch him tonight on the Galileo Show on ProSieben between 7.00 and 8.00 pm. To prep, read his amusing account of the experience, parts 1, 2 and 3. Part 4 will reveal the winner. I have a sneaking suspicion it might be he.

This photo of his handiwork, snaffled from his blog, shows a true conoisseur's pizza. The base an exquisite cowpat shape, and the topping looks as it should; like a mixture of placenta and vomit. How can he lose? Besides, I mean, like...German pizza? Gimme a break.

EDIT:
Oh, Ian. You was robbed! I thought the cruellest part was where the Italian and German chefs showed beautifully art-directed groaning boards of the ingredients, but they made you unpack yours from a shopping bag. What an outrage!
