Sink the Bismarck
|Fire Danger: CATASTROPHIC (delete)
Sink the Bismarck is a film about a World War II Nazi Battleship, and the British attempt to sink that mighty ship. Oddly enough, many major characters and historical elements involve types of pastries.
This article explores those links to the past.
The Bismarck and her commander
The ship is named for a long crème filled pastry that is often iced. The pastry itself is named for its inventor, Pastry chef Otto Von Bismarck.
The Bismarck is the pride of the Nazi fleet, which is commanded by Admiral Doüghnuts.
According to legend, Admiral Doüghnuts created the tasty breakfast treat; the doughnut treats were created with a hole to fit over the handles of a ship's wheel, so Doüghnuts' helmsman could keep his hands on the wheel.
Whether or not Captain Krüeller was present at the decisive battle is lost to history, and his character in the film was condensed to a brief appearance on a napkin.
The British Ships that fought with and sank the Bismarck included HMS Earl of Grey, Cuppa Joe, and the Java.
