A Jerry is a funny guy! Totally and completely loyal, well traveled, well educated, smart, funny, sexy, talented, good at everything, and a blast to be around. You have a friend for life with a Jerry, but do NOT piss a Jerry off. He can whoop some ass. It's hard to not love a Jerry. A Jerry can throw some wicked parties, is usually the life of the party, and knows everyone, and makes friends with anyone. A Jerry is picky about who he opens up to though. A Jerry is the total package.
Dude 1: Who is that guy whooping everyone's asses like a Jerry?

Dude 2: Oh! That's Jerry!

"Jerries" was a shortened form for "Germans" used by the allied soldiers during world war II. They used it because it was shorter and easier to say. Because you can't really say "Gers", the allies were saying "Jerries". There is no offensive or subliminal meaning on that word (unlike for "Krauts").

Jerry was used by the British in the Great War as a nickname for the Germans. One possible origin is that Jerry was thought to be a common name among Germans, like 'John' with Americans. Another, and perhaps the true origin, is that bed pans/chamber pots were called Jerries, and the Germans helmets looked like them, so... Jerry was one of many nicknames used to call the Germans, the French preferred Boche, the Americans, Krauts. Another common one was 'Hun'. The usage of Jerry, and the rest, although I can't say I have seem much use of Boche outside of WW I related things, continued during the Second World War. The gas/water container used by the Germans in WW II was nicknamed a Jerry can. During the Great War, the Germans, when talking to the Englishmen in the opposite trenches, would use Tommy to reference them, while the British, of course, used Jerry in regard to the Germans.
My high school had this great set of WW II books, and I can remember this one story from a veteran that, for whatever reason, has stuck with me. He and his unit had assaulted a German airfield. "We were running around securing the hangars. I passed the door to an office and kicked it open. I tossed in a grenade and the Jerry behind the desk caught it and shouted, "Nein! Nein!" I yelled, "Ja! Ja!" and slammed the door shut."
