German

From This Might Be A Wiki

TMBG, but perhaps John Flansburgh in particular, seem to enjoy speaking, singing, or even acting out a sort of caricature of a German national. John Flansburgh has often used the pseudonym "Rolf Conant", because Conant is his middle name and Rolf is simply "a good German name." John Linnell has used the name "Gunnar", which is more properly Teutonic in origin, but arguably sounds somewhat Germanic.
