why "belgian" ?

Is "belgian" a punchbag/scapegoat nationality ?

I'm asking this because... I'm belgian.


(Well... I am right now. The way things are going in this country, I may get a new nationality it a few years...)

But in the end we settled on three choices: number three ... the Sprouts, sent in by Mrs Vicious of Hastings... very nice ; number two..... the Phlegms... from Mrs Childmolester of Worthing; but the winner was undoubtedly from Mrs No-Supper-For-You from Norwood in Lancashire... Miserable Fat Belgian Bastards.

See, a Belgian waffle to the face would be excellent. Not tragic and wrong, which is the theme of the game.

Hey Baud, don't worry about the possibility of Belgium breaking up. We'll just go back to how things were in 1579 where Holland and Belgium were called the Federation of the Netherlands aka Belgica Foederata. Get it? Historically Belgium and the Netherlands are different words for the same thing!
But what do we do with our monarchies?

This is simultaneously a waste of pie and an opportunity to punch a Belgian in the face.

The Belgian I was referring to was the kid in the video. That kid strikes me as an asshole. All smiley because he got a new toy. Well, fuck you, you ratfaced little shit. Some of us didn't have fancy Pie Face toys growing up, okay? We didn't have a governess to supervise our play and keep happy simles on our happy Pie Faces. Our version of Pie Face was called You Shut Up About My Mom and we played it with our dads' empty bottles of Milwaukee's Best.

Ah, memories...

*checks Wikipedia* Indeed.

Netherlands - Area 41,526 km² (18.41% water)
Denmark - Area 43,094 km² (1.6% water)

We're the tallest on the face of this earth.

You'd have to be, to keep your heads above water. It also makes you gangly bastards easier to knock over, high centre of gravity and all that.

So what are you measly handful of Danes gonna do about it?

You know all those redundant Dutch vowels? Those weren't originally part of the language... they got there by the Dutch constantly shaking in their clogs and stuttering in fear of our dreaded Viking marauders.

Now, are we going to lay off the trashtalk and go after the real problem? Those dirty Swedes need a seeing-to.

Well now, the result of last week's competition when we asked you to find a derogatory term for the Belgians.

Well, the response was enormous and we took quite a long time sorting out the winners. There were some very clever entries.

Mrs Hatred of Leicester Said 'let's not call them anything, let's just ignore them' ...

(applause starts vigorously, but he holds his hands up for silence)

...and a Mr St John of Huntingdon said he couldn't think of anything more derogatory than "Belgians."

(cheers and applause)

But in the end we settled on three choices: number three ... the Sprouts, sent in by Mrs Vicious of Hastings... very nice ; number two..... the Phlegms ... from Mrs Childmolester of Worthing; but the winner was undoubtedly from Mrs No-Supper-For-You from Norwood in Lancashire... Miserable Fat Belgian Bastards.

what do we do with our monarchies
The traditional solution to a surfeit of monarchs was beheading, of course, but make sure you go the French way and get the lot, rather than our cack-handed English attempt which let the heir escape only to come back later. Possibly a touch harsh on the modern mainland European models, who all seem to be cheery bicycle-riding social workers rather than the despots of yore. But as keen upholders of anachronism themselves, I'm sure they'd agree that the chop is only what proper form demands.

Best part about any toy is modifying it to the naturally sadistic tendencies of children and the possibilities for fun with this little honey are endless:

Rock face, frog face. ants face. spit face, mustard face, ketchup face (that would be fun!! Yum!), worm face, sharpened pencil face, fork face, knife face, fire face, glass face, dog shit face, human shit face, beer face, soda face, gerbals face, hamster face, goldfish face, draino face, bleach face, ammonia face, ajax face, Raid face, oil face, antifreeze face....etc..etc..

Honest, I thought that was a fun game Blazecock. Deliciously messy. Just the kind of thing kids really like but parents would rather not buy. Like a backyard water slide or an Ooey-gooey Gummy Maker Makes 30 Edible Bug Creations.

Always amused me that Belgian-French-Dutch-German-Flemish-Luxembourgeois animosity. Kind of like Manhattanites' snobbery in talking about people a couple of miles away the "Tunnel and Bridge" crowd. Oh puleez.

In Belgium there are two types of waffles (or gauffres as we like to call them): [recipes]the Brussels and the Liege waffle. The Brussels is rectangular in shape with a golden-brown exterior, deep divots and is usually eaten with a knife and fork. Brussels waffles are served with a variety of toppings such as powdered sugar, whipped cream, ice cream, strawberries and chocolate. The Liege waffle is golden-yellow, more dense in texture and has a burned sugar coating on the outside giving it a lightly sweet flavor. This hand-held waffle is sold by street vendors all over Belgium.

I'll take a Belgian over a French person or a Dane, any day of the week. French people have a stick up their butts and Danes well, I don't know. What can you say about a country that thinks Lenny kravitz is the best thing since Elvis. Also, Tuborg is overrated.

Now the Belgians and beer...that's another story entirely. You know physics the science? Well the Belgians they split atoms with their beers...

Yes. That's the proper old form. They'll appreciate that. We could also show their bodies to the public. Heads on spikes and stuff.
But maybe a fight to the death between both royal families would be more suitable to the modern times of reality tv. It would be broadcast on television. May the best royal family win.

One question...

In Russian Roulette, isn't there supposed to be a chance of NOT getting shot?

No one seemed to remain uncreamed in the commercial.
posted by Samizdata at 11:03 AM on February 9, 2008


The game itself has that sort of chance factor in it.

Spin the spinner to see how many times you have to crank your pie-handlebars. After N cranks... Splat! Whoever is the last to remain uncreamed wins, I guess.

Telling a joke there with a Belgian accent is something like an American using a hillbilly accent.

It features as an off hand joke in The Dinner Game where the protagonist is at one point supposed to phone someone anonymously and suggests he do it in a comic Belgian accent. (Which is a major derail, but I liked the movie and rarely have a chance to plug it.)
