Battlestar Galactica?

Brigadier Surgeon-General?

Battalion Sergeant's Galley?

Butler's Steering Gear?

I don't see the connection to Messerschmidt

It's maybe the oldest in-joke on Languish.

Germans call a know-it-all a besserweiser.  A "better-knower" IIRC.  Some people took to calling besserweisers Messerschmidts so the besserweiser would correct them and demonstrate they are, in fact, a besserweiser.

I've been here since basically the very beginning and this is the first time I've seen this even mentioned.

Yeah, never seen it before.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.
