Do you agree with these descriptions? :) Or would you change something?

I don't agree with this view personally, however I do agree that many Poles seem to have a very similar outlook on our European neighbours to the one presented in and by this map.

However, the Godless Traitors' land could be renamed as "The Employment Destination" or even "Land of Hope (and Glory)", which would reflect a more recent opinion ;)

Well, I have a more historical-touristic approach, so I could change very much :P . You're right about Great Britain.

Still there are some other descriptions, that I don't understand. That in Ireland there are "potatoes", or in France "pussies" (oops, is that a vulgarism? :P ).

The French are 'pussies' because they were cowards during the WW2, or at least many Poles (and the English or Americans) seem to think so. However, I don't know what's the case with "potatoes" in Ireland, but I generally don't know much about Ireland anyway. :P

Hopefully, someone on the forum, has been to Ireland at least once and will enlighten us on the subject. :)

About France: that's what I was thinking initially, but I was not sure of it.

About Ireland: I think it's because the potatoes, as one of our favourite vegetables, are sometimes refered in English as the "Irish potatoes". Maybe it has to do something also with the Great Famine of 1845, also called the Irish Potato Famine... Personally, I would refere to Ireland as "our colony 2.0" ;) .

Would you refer to the UK in a similar manner too? :)

Yes I would, just as "our colony" :P . Or "our new colony", when comparing with "our former colonies" ;) .

When considering Europe according to other countries or people, I think the best are the maps of Europe according to Vatican, gay men and Berlusconi :mrgreen: .
