I had to read that one three times before I got it.
That's the entry by a graphic designer from the Netherlands to a design contest of a company founded and headquartered in the Netherlands.https://blog.brabantia.com/2014/08/tagourbag-brabantia-competition-winner/I think someone is confusing "Dutch" with "Deutsche"
Thanks, Douglas2! I knew this would only be a joke to people of a certain age, since it references a history tidbit that's becoming more and more obscure.
It may have originated in the Netherlands, but the joke is about the German language.
FYI, Miss C., the original statement actually translated to "I am a jelly-filled pastry".
Not exactly. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ich_bin_ein_Berliner
