So this is where the German language is now going. I know that this is
a word that is often misspelt, but only the internet allows people to

No, I was just objecting to the incorrect spelling. Your story is
quite entertaining, though. Similar to Viktor Vasarely, a Hungarian
artist who had to adapt his name (from V\'as\'arhelyi [TeX syntax],
