    Thanks for the link, Jay.

    Regarding the copycat cities, the most striking thing about those faux German (usually faux Bavarian) towns in the US and Canada is that they never seem like anything other than oddly mismatched copies, if you know the original inspiration. And of course, it’s always faux Bavaria, even if the name of the town makes it very clear that the original immigrants came from an entirely different part of Germany.
