"If you ain't Dutch, you ain't much." If you know 28th St. and Meijer then you have probably heard that little phrase.

There are only two things I can't stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and the Dutch.

How to deal with Dutch people.

(8) When visiting Holland it is not necessary to fake interest for tulips, mills, wooden shoes or cheese. Every Hollander knows you came for the soft drugs and the Amsterdam red-light district. Both are widely spread and easy to find. Just ask any Hollander over age 6 or a French tourist.

Ha! I was going to say the same thing but my beliefs/thoughts are not for public display.


Cool link, btw. My daughter is having a blast.

gman, fear not for flapjax! I didn't get the allusion, but I thought your comment was funny as hell, considering, of course, that the Dutch are noted for their legendary "tolerance" of other peoples and other cultures.

I have a Puerto Rican domino right here on my desk (I know it's Puerto Rican because of two things: it was found in a parking lot, here in PR, and it also has a Puerto Rican flag on it.) I don't see any Cuban dominoes, so I do not believe you, oddman.

The Dutch that live in Holland, that is. The Dutch that immigrated to America over the last few centuries, not so much.
