... 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!

Doon, still wondering why only American women got their own stereotype...can't you think of anything to say about European women?

I thought I might hide this in here !! You are already in enough trouble
heres some clothing/fashion tips for travellers!
1. A nose ring and bifocals.


2. Spiked hair and bald spots.


3. A pierced tongue and dentures.


4. Miniskirts and support hose.


5. Ankle bracelets and corn pads.


6. Speedo's and cellulite.


7. A belly button ring and a gall bladder surgery scar.


8. Unbuttoned disco shirts and a heart monitor.


9. Midriff shirts and a midriff bulge.


10. Bikinis and liver spots,


11. Short shorts and varicose veins.


12. Inline skates and a walker.


13. Thongs and Depends.


And the ultimate "Bad Taste" in fashion for the "Older Folks" --


14. Pierced Nipples that hang below the waist.

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
