"Oh, Luxembourg Wisconsin - never heard of it!"
"You all speak Flemish over there don't you?"
"Is the weather nice?"
We've all heard such gems at some point when we say we live in Luxembourg. The following zingers have been uttered by far-away landers. One was said by a resident - try to guess which one...
"How is it going over there in Belgium?"
"Luxembourg! Did you make that up?"
"That's where the guy headbutts the buses isn't it?"
"It's the biggest of the 1001 'bourgs in Europe."
"Its an unnecessarily protective country that suffers from warped commercial and infrastructure. The whole of the South could do with being bulldozed."
"It's disrespectful if you don't at least buy Luxlait or support the Bofferding family," said Eliza Hrusku while browsing in the Bitburg branch of DM.
"We chose to live in the Grand Duchy, so why not pay a bit more for a steak or even a car from Autopolis?"
Tom Grageingwell, (who works with Hrusku) confirmed, "Eliza never comes out since two people in the Team ordered a pint of Ramborn when it was her round."
"Lat time we had a social, she mumbled something about taking care of her elderly neighbours, got into her car bearing the licence plates from her home country and took off."
