The Germans are an Interesting People

Bernd das Brot, kidnapped by squatters, (in what Variety identified as a crematorium,) was found alive and well and untoasted, although his kidnappers' house has burnt to the ground.

The glumly glutenous Bernd is a much beloved, brand name, er... I mean, cartoon character.

This article describes poor Bernd as "surly," but I had thought it was more a matter of a kind of nihilistic depression.
