Viewed metaphorically from Canada, the US is the star quarterback that all the girls wanted to date in high school. He is very successful as an adult and is the captain of the volunteer fire brigade in your town and always first on the scene when anyone needs help.

On the other hand he also picks fights a lot and is a bit rough with his wife and kids on the home front. He also drives when he has had one drink too many.

Even with his many avowed faults he is still a tough act to follow for Canada.

Here's my take:

Sweden is an investment banker, a successful adult man with a lovely wife who is a teacher and two kids. He's mentally stable, had made peace with the surrounding world, and is in every way a responsible citizen.

Colombia is a thug who sells H on a street corner, a barely literate manchild wearing baggy shorts and a headscarf. The little gangsta goes home to his shack, beats up his wife and sniffs some coke with his Cholo gangsta friends.

That's what Swedes say about Finland! Well, at least my neighbour....as to the "mentally stable".....peace with the surrounding world...not much.. Norwegians have no love lost for them, etc, but that's universal in the continent. They complain about "Swedish" immigrants, how could that be?

lol - I've missed so much.

You're confusing Colombia with Mexico. Colombia doesn't have that baggy clothes "culture" like Mexico does, there also aren't as many "Cholos" as there are in the Mexican household (+Central America).

Sweden on the other hand is actually suicidal behind the stable facade and his daughter got assaulted by his step-son of dubious origin but the rest of the family (inc. mother Finland) says it was her own fault for not covering herself properly.

Here's Mexico on one of his trips dancing to plagiarised music that Colombia composed to be played at orchestra level. Sweden and Finland's daughter is jealous of Colombia's beauty, musical ability and that she doesn't take crap from anyone and can defend herself if need be. Mexico's daughter called Rosa is also jealous of Colombia and they both love to bash her on an internet forum.



This is fun.

I don't wanna say anything bad about Mexico.

But I know what you're talking about.

You give yourself too much importance. I've never bashed Colombia or Colombians, I have no reason to.

If I laughed at the post, its because Irene for years has been entering to belittle and insult people from other countries and cultures continuously. She especially insults Nordic people, Americans, Mexicans and Central Americans. Its the other way around my dear.

I don't find offence to your post, its cute and immature.

Oooh did I touch a nerve?

Just having a little bit of fun, love. Nothing wrong with a little bit of immaturity in banter - I love Mexico really and admire Sweden.

I have no idea about this Irene person or the forum's history with her. So many things she says are just ludicrous, some make me laugh some are nonsensical ramblings. If you can't take it like Ariete can then don't heckle or dish it. No harm done hey pet.

If you would have touched a nerve, you would have felt my Scorpio tail bite. The one who obviously had a nerve touched was you actually.

I'm clarifying the lie that I bash Colombians. That's why I responded, you named me.

I worked many years with homeless people, drug addicts, low-income people. I have grown very thick skin. However, I will respond to made up chismes or lies.

Scorpio tail "bite" , OK

I didn't ask for your star sign or autobiography, it was a bit of fun. Ariete took it fine he can obviously dish it and take it, I have no clue what's going on here with you. I obviously ruffled something - ahh well.

US is bffs with Saudi Arabia. Altho Saudi Arabia is an abusive boyfriend who has burned the US many times before, and also takes awful care of himself, is a misogynistic sexist, and is hated by pretty much all of his neighbors, United States loves Saudi Arabia unconditionally. Saudi Arabia's next door neighbor, Iran, has pretty much never done anything wrong to the US and generally keeps to himself, but for some reason is regarded as a creep
