Two from Dreck

Specifically this post.

The first link is to a post containing a proposed national anthem

The Scotsman is mean, as we’re all well aware
And bony and blotchy and covered with hair
He eats salty porridge, he works all the day
And he hasn’t got bishops to show him the way!

and

And crossing the Channel, one cannot say much
Of French and the Spanish, the Danish or Dutch
The Germans are German, the Russians are red,
And the Greeks and Italians eat garlic in bed!

The Germans are German is a lovely insulting tautology.

And speaking of the Scots, this article Taller women are more career-driven – that’s the long and the short of it is well worth a read. I have no idea if it’s true or not, but any article that seems to use “homely” as a technical term must be interesting.
