Ten reasons for being Dutch

Postby Plavt » Thu, 15 Dec 2005 2:58 am

1. You can get arrested for growing plants, but not for
smoking them.

2. You can make jokes about the Belgians and still drink their
beer.

3. a. You can legally kill yourself
b. You can legally be killed

4. You're exactly like the Germans, except that nobody hates
you.

5. You think you are a world power, but everyone else thinks
Copenhagen is your capital.....

6. You get to insult people and defend yourself by saying it's
a national tradition.

7. You can put your finger in a dyke and it will save your
country

8. You live in the most densely populated country in Europe,
and still you've never seen your neighbours.

9. If the economy is bad, blame the Germans. If a war is
started, blame the Germans. If you lose your keys, blame the
Germans.

10. Bikes are public property. Locks are a challenge.

Genetics is a terrible thing, Eric - how do you think we feel being told that that 'special' cousin ((you lot)) is related to us and he has 'special' needs . . .

I never knew that, so what are the lyrics? Eric could you give me the gist of it?

to vaucluse,

we're more related than you would wish for most likely, I am about to reveal a big secret..... BUT... Let me wait for a few weeks, as there is someone on this forum who could give the details, that would embarass me soooo much.... After 7 January it will be the news of that day... :P

To Baron,

yeah, us Dutchies do tend to insult each and everyone and then say our culture is "direct en open en recht op de man". Meaning: we say it in the face and we are blunt to the offensive.

It is true alas, we tend to say things just too straightforward...

You can easily claim to go Dutch? Hehe

But the world is full of fluffier ones.
