Stackenblochen

I am a little annoyed and amused at once by these kinds of American stereotypes about Germans. At best it's a bit dense, and the part at the end with the Nazis beating up a woman for no good reason is gratuitously nasty.

On the other hand, I have to admit that I once had a neighbor who really did Stackenblochen on his desk, arranging all of the objects on it so that their sides were parallel with the edges, and got annoyed if anything was off-kilter. That's just one example, but I can't deny that this kind of the thing is entirely not unheard of around here.
