Berlin didn’t become the pulsating metropolis its is by blithely doing what everyone else does.
Oh no, Berlin became Berlin because it was Berlin.
And now so that we all can bathe in wonder of what “Berlin” means, the city marketing authorities have started an education programme, “be Berlin“, in which they instruct us all how we too can be like them.
And in conjunction with the DMY design festival, (smow)blog can exclusively reveal a few secrets as to how you too can “be Berlin”
be Berlin Tip 3: Use cigarette smoke for your barbecue
Don’t waste the worlds resources on burning charcoal for your barbecue – there will inevitably be smokers hanging around, just use their exhaled smoke to heat your meat, plantains and garlic bread. Saves you work, saves the planet and smokers can experience how it feels to be useful rather than a social scourge. The end of the Cold War has its roots in this unique Berlin arrangement.
And so go on, use cigarette smoke for your barbecue, and “be Berlin”.
