Greetings, neighbour!

Here in Holland, we walk around wearing wooden shoes. Every afternoon, we go
clogdancing in the village square. We eat cheese and drink jenever all day,
and when a German asks us for directions, we say "Immer gerade aus," or "Do
ist der Bahnhof."

Every year, we go on holiday to Spain (Benidorm) with our caravans packed to
the brim with hagelslag, peanut butter and potatoes, because we hate foreign

Half of the population is gay, the other half on drugs. We teach our kids to
smoke marijuana at age 5.
