About love in different cultures

Copied from a post by Dijedon

There is a beautiful deserted island in the middle of nowhere where the following group of people are stranded:

2 Italian men and 1 Italian woman
2 French men and 1 French woman
2 German men and 1 German woman
2 Greek men and 1 Greek woman
2 Bulgarian men and 1 Bulgarian woman
2 Irish men and 1 Irish woman
2 American men and 1 American woman
2 British men and 1 British woman

One month later on this absolutely stunning deserted island in the middle of nowhere, the following has occurred:

One Italian man killed the other Italian man for the Italian woman.

The two French men and the French woman are living happily together in a "menage a trois".

The two German men have a strict weekly schedule of when they alternate with the German woman.

The two Greek men are sleeping with each other and the Greek woman is cleaning and cooking for them.

The Bulgarian men took a long look at the endless ocean and one look at the Bulgarian woman and they started swimming.

The Irish began by dividing up their island, Northside and Southside, and by setting up a distillery. They do not remember if sex is in the picture because it gets sort of foggy after the first few liters of coconut whiskey, but at least the English are not getting any.

The two American men are contemplating the virtues of suicide while the American woman keeps on talking about her body being her own, the true nature of feminism, how she can do everything that they can do, about the necessity of fulfillment, the equal division of household chores, how her last boyfriend respected her opinion and treated her much nicer and how her relationship with her mother is improving. But at least the taxes are low and it is not raining.

.AND...

The 2 British men are still waiting for someone to introduce them to the British woman

Don't forget to thank (or blame) Dijedon, not me.

I've read this three times now and each time I end up crying with laughter...especially over the last line. This is so funny, Koosje...wicked but hilarious!

Anne-Marie said...

Ha ha, Koos, I have seen this before and it's hilarious every time.

You must add... and the Canadians are too polite to say anything and just go along with whatever has been decided. ;)

Almost...
I can identify best with the Bulgarians, although the story seems to be undeservedly hard on the Bulgarian women in general.

Ah, let us celebrate cultural diversity! ;-) Great stuff Koos :-)

Koos F said...

Long live diversity indeed, if it were only because it is harder to control heterogenous masses.

And how about the Dutch argueing which woman, whereever she is from, is the cheapest....

Koos F said...

Dale! My heart skips a beat.

Erik-Jan, we're lucky the jokers think of Scotsmen first!

Jodie said...

tee hee... I must admit though that the Americans sound awfully Dutch ;)

Koos F said...

Hi Jo,
I was hoping nobody would notice ;-)

Lannio said...

Cute. Cultural diversity rocks!

Hi Koos,

Thanks for letting me know about Val's day! My congratulations were for her book actually so I made a card and posted it to her :-)

Koos F said...

Goes to show what a wonderful friend you are, Maria.

Except that I think one of the two Americans would pair up with the woman and the other American would take the British woman.
