The Three (four) Ks - German heroic qualities beginning with a big K - attributed to women (Kinder - Küche - Kirche - Kartoffelsalat) children - kitchen - church - potato salad (Economist March 2000). Potato salad is added by me to replace CDU The Christian Democratic Union added by the Economist because it does not begin with a K. CDU begins with a big C for Christian which is the same as Kirche - church.
Kartoffelsalat is certainly still very popular in Germany. However, my wife thinks this picture is a bit old fashioned. Nowadays other Ks such as karriere (carrier), KITE Kindertagestatte (nursery) and f I may add Kaffee (coffe) gain importance.
