Agreed, Karl.  For the list members who have never met one, a pa~czek (plural 
pa~czki) is a Polish jelly doughnut similar to what in some parts of Germany 
(but not Berlin!) is called a "Berliner".  Where I grew up on the Canadian 
prairies, the Prussian/Berlin association was maintained in the name that we 
used:  "bismarcks".
