Ich bin ein Berliner!

President Kennedy made the statement “Ich bin ein Berliner,” “I am a Berliner,” in West Berlin almost two years after the Soviets erected the Berlin Wall.  When emphasizing the “ein” in this statement,  it means “I am a jelly donut.”  In northern Germany, a donut is referred to as a “Berliner.”

Using two different programs, one for inserting images (the jelly donut) and one that allows for the addition of text bubbles, I was able to produce the above image.  I wasn’t sure what I would do at first since I have limited knowledge of photo editing, but I found that there are free websites out there that make photo editing easy for novices, like me!

Most likely, this story is a misconception, but I like to believe it is real.  It makes for a good story when people ask why you’re a history major.
