DUTCH CULTURE

Readers have on occasion chided this blogger for not being Dutch enough.
Having lived in the Netherlands for nearly two decades while young, they feel I should have more sympathy for the Dutch, their lovely country, the food, the art, the history, the glorious culture.
And also the sprightly music.

Yes, the music.

As may be appreciated in this video clip.


SPEAKING FLUENT DUTCH WITHOUT EVEN REALLY TRYING, REALLY, THERE'S NOTHING TO IT, AND PLEASE NOTE THAT NO-ONE IS ACTUALLY HACKING UP A GIANT HAIRBALL, HONEST, I KID YOU NOT!

The sprightly music occurs at regular intervals during the show. It is performed by the world-famous "Nederlander Foot Choir".

Great stuff.

Meaty!


"Ond spesifikat, vus künder miet?"


Please note the "disastür zün Rhine". Your generous contribution to relief efforts will be thoroughly appreciated.
And now, ni pudük poi Feelyat!
Swievü, swievü, swievü!


Any resemblance to the Swedish Chef is purely coincidental. Dutch and Swedish are both beautiful and unique languages, which though equally melodic are actually vastly different.


Man, I just love a good foot choir.

    See, swedish sounds like an actual language, where dutch might as well be this:
