Re: "Kraut" ? really ? in the 21st century ? after 70 years ?

I agree and disagree....

The europeans have always had a way of describing each other using a food based item that is native to that country. We tend to only use if for France and Germany, and maybe a little bit towards Scotland, Wales and Ireland. It doesn't make it right but its not like they don't do it back to ourselves in England.
