      We have tiny eyes, straight and black hair. And we are of puny sizes.

      We like to complain but we never voice out. We are afraid of a lot of things and never like to stir trouble.

      We're always loud drunks abroad.

      We're frequently loud drunks at home.

      We drink a lot.

      We're unfriendly, rude and selfish.

      We're all rich (if you've heard of us at all)

      We're actually just a county of Sweden

      We bring polar bears to school (they're so cute)

      We have blond hair and we're vikings. Also we're better than everyone else.

      As a Canadian living in the US I've had to deal with these.

      1) It's cold everywhere in Canada (not true, some places can be really hot)
      2) Everyone in Canada must go fishing a lot (never been until I came here)
      3) People are passive-aggressive instead of blatantly rude (relatively true more than any actually, this kind of annoys me, most people's personalities seem a little washed out)
      4) Everyone speaks French (not where I live)

      And a few that I know exist but haven't encountered much of:

      5) Moose (never seen one in my life)
      6) Igloos (nope)
      7) Canadian Mounties (not where I live)
      8) Beer (a little true, not everyone drinks it though)
      9) Peaceful, not aggressive (generally true but there are a variety of people with different personalities)
      10) Hockey (true generally, not for me)
      11) Eh (no one says that where I live except in the 'huh?' sense)
      12) Tim Hortons (well I worked there, so yeah)

      Go to about 1:30 (or just watch the whole thing because it's hilarious):

      I'm sure he isn't. A few people on this forum set that to their flag as a joke. It's unfortunate because I never know where they're really from.

      Flemish hate the Walloons (I don't, don't see a reason too. Unless I lived in the late 1800's early 1900's)
      We are rude against foreigners (Except from the Dutch and my family visiting from Ukraine I never met any)
      Subtle we are being conquered by Muslims (Pretty much)
      Drink beer like Russians drink vodka (Sometimes)
      We speak French (60% of the Belgian population speak Dutch, 40% speak French and another small minority speak German)
      We barely have any cities (Yep. I dislike them anyway.)

      Maybe there are no foreigners at all because the Belgians are so rude to them?

      Anyway.
      Germans
      - are blonde and blue eyed (I am darkhaired and brown eyed)
      - are Nazis. Old sterotype but still existing. (I am an anarchist)
      - eat Sauerkraut every day (the mayority of Germans have Sauerkraut maybe once a year)
      - don't show emotions and are impersonal (quite true)

      - everyone wears clogs (the're actually very comfortable)
      - there are no hills or mountains
      - the landscape is scattered with windmills and tulips
      - people dress everything up in the colour orange

      No speed limit which isn't true,most parts are limited to 130 km/h. There are however parts where you could approach the speed of light without any problems with the law,but those are getting rarer.
