Many people believe that the Germans don’t have a sense of humor. In fact, I believe this to be a nasty rumor started by the Austrians, who are just like the Germans but even more anal retentive. This video seems to prove that some Germans, at least those who make ads for television, do indeed have a sense of humor.
I don’t recommend trying this on your own, at least not on a 600cc motorcycle. While Germans may be able to smile and laugh, German police generally do not. A tip of the hat to Dan, for sending me this video.
