        !

        I'll apply cold, hard logic. Swabia is like the US south, both geographically and with its 'funny' dialect/accent. It's also home of the Black Forest .

        so we're looking for a mostly poor, rural, funny-speaking, heavily wooded kinda place, that the Nazis occupied. . . . Poland!!!

        I'm playin' pavvka! :-)

              29. Antarctica. Nazi Germany claimed it between 1939 and 1945, although no other country recognized the claim. A few people believe that at the end of World War II Adolf Hitler faked his suicide, made his way to Argentina and then continued on to a secret SS base under the ice in New Swabia, where he resumed his career as a painter. According to this theory, the real purpose of a major military operation led by Rear Adm. Richard Byrd during 1946-47 was to wipe out the Nazi base, capture prototypes of mercury-powered flying saucers and, presumably, share a Whopper with Elvis.

                  The movie is coming out next summer. I have a bit part as the Burger King counter person that takes Elvis's order. My only lines:

                  "So have I got this straight? Three burger patties, three slices of cheese, six strips of bacon, two tomato slices, onions, half a tomato, chili and fried okra and bananas with peanut butter, plus 2 large fries and a 64oz. Root Beer? Careful! It'll be the death of you!"

                    This question reminded me of one that I think may have been on our Board somewhere before:

                    What city in the Southern Hemisphere would make you most think that you're in Germany? This is not language related as it was told to me.

                      My quick response would be Cape Town or something nearby in southern South Africa.
