Europe heaven, Europe hell

As Europe heads for apocalyptic melt-down, or not, in 2012, here’s something I came across to lighten the mood

“Heaven in Europe is a place where the British are the policemen, the French are the cooks, the Germans are the mechanics, the Italians are the lovers and the Swiss run the place.

And hell is where the British are the cooks, the French are the mechanics, the Germans are the policemen, the Swiss are the lovers and the Italians run the place.”  Anonymous.

Any suggestions for where the Irish fit in?

  1. In Heaven we’d be the guys that every one is thanking for evangelising them.. In hell we’d be blamed for bringing em down.

  2. Somebody told me that the Irish are the Latins of Europe, meaning, the Latin Americans of Europe, no sense of urgency.
    I heard this joke once: A Mexican meets an Irish person and tries to explain a bit about Mexican culture and one of the things that he explains is the concept of: Maniana (tomorrow), which in reality means, that whatever needs to be done, will be done at certain stage, but not necessary the following day. The Mexican asks the Irish: do you have any similar expression in your language? to what the Irish replies: No, we don’t have any word that communicates that sense of urgency!
