German American Relations

D-USA is tracking a new purported German radio personality in Oklahoma and trying to sniff out Claus' true identity - German or Not German? I don't know if he is German either, but it is so goofy it's worth a listen, just for the entertainment value. Here's my pros & cons list:
- too goofy, in other words, too much like an American pretending to be typical "German"
- Claus would be spelled Klaus in Germany

- high quality German accent on some phrases
- knows that David Hasselhof is popular in Germany (what American would know that?)

For today I'm going to go with Claus is a German because the pros and cons are even but one of the cons is probably invalid: the radio name or pseudo name Claus wouldn't be the guy's real name any way.
