Heaven & Hell, well sort of . . .

I believe I was living in Germany when someone told me this little saying. It's a generalization and it's meant to be fun and light-hearted so please don't send me any m-mail(mean-mail). It still makes me laugh because generalisation or not, there are elements that ring true and for those who have experienced any of these cultural stereotypes you perhaps understand what I mean.


Heaven is where the chefs are French,
the lovers are Italian,
the mechanics are German,
the police are British
and all is organised by the Swiss.


Hell is where the chefs are British,
the lovers are Swiss,
the mechanics are French,
the police are German
and all is organised by the Italians.
