Choosing Their Words: Artists Reach for Their Roots by Writing in Other Languages

Of course one risks a linguistic faux pas as JFK did in Berlin when he mistakenly announced: "I am a jelly donut!"

Dr. Mutt, pray tell?...What was JFK trying to articulate when he pronounced himself a "pastry"? (Filled no less)

In parts of Germany a filled doughnut is knows as a Berliner.  So it is open to interpretation if JFK did declare himself to be a jelly doughnut but it makes for a good story. There has been conjecture about what our current President is filled with but I'll leave that to the peanut gallery to fill in that blank.

No matter what JFK was going for, I like Jelly Doughnut better...

Come on peanut gallery!
