I'm not ignoring you guys...
... but I can't reply to your postings on my stereotypes post, 'cos I don't get a reply button for some reason.

Sheila, fine ye ken we cannae spell doon hame, an' onywey ye kent whit ah wiz sayin'.

emilid, I think you've guessed where my money was - interestingly my boss was betting on the English for reasons best known to himself.

Everyone, this was meant as a piece of whimsical nonsense, with no truth in it other than that which you yourself percieve. if you have been amused, I am glad, if you have been offended, I am stricken with remorse and sadness, and I offer my unreserved apologies.

Someone who doesn't recognize satire and irony must have complained!

I'd wager you won your bet, though!

BTilke, I can think of plenty to say on European women, b ut I'm a coward! My wife has 3 different strains of European blood, so it doesn't leave me much room for manoeuvre
