Bring the Chancellor home
Do you already know these funny Merkel gadgets?
After 16 years on the world stage, Angela Merkel is ending her political career as Federal Chancellor. Of course we won’t forget them – especially not with these funny gadgets.
True to the motto “There is nothing that doesn’t exist”, we have found these four funny Merkel gadgets. Would you like to bring the current chancellor home?
Lemon squeezer for sour drinks
Angela Merkel studied physics at the University of Leipzig from 1973 to 1978. She often stood behind the counter at student parties: “I was the barmaid,” she told a “Bild” reporter seven years ago. When she resigns, the Chancellor will definitely have more time for hobbies. Does mixing drinks still count today? In any case, she would have the right tool for a whiskey sour or margarita …
The smokers – or smokers, as they are called in the Saxon Ore Mountains – originally served to drive away evil spirits and attract good ones. Angela Merkel tried that with her cigarette consumption: The Chancellor smoked a box a day in her early days as Federal Youth Minister! After a bad cold, however, she gave up smoking, as she says in a “Bunte” interview. If she wants to indulge in old times again, she can turn to this smoker. However, in this case he would have to be renamed “Smoker”.
Strike a Pose!
Merkel’s legendary diamond is world famous and it is actually also available as a T-shirt! However, the “Merkel roof” does not have a deeper meaning, as she says in an interview. So the Chancellor’s coolness is actually for sale!
Bathing fun with Merkel duck
Angela Merkel will have more time in the future for her beloved hiking holidays in South Tyrol. Perhaps she will not only take her husband Joachim Sauer with her, but also this funny rubber duck. It has no wings, but it is cool with a Merkel diamond.
