Of course I did not mean to belittle Shaffers collection. That's why I put the smilie there. I suppose some jokes are hard to appreciate. This one wasn't particularly good or kind. Sorry bout that. But that's all beside the point and not what I was trying to convey.
Furthermore, English is just my third language in which I have no trouble expressing myself in. But culture is something completely different. Americans have very little sense of humor when it comes to their ego. Embarrassing situations, especially concerning bodily functions are supposedly hilarious, but oh my, just don't mock someones property because it's an extension of their.... (you can fill in the blanks). Europeans do not exist. And even in my little (17million ppl) country we have about 8 different (native) cultures with different mentalities, languages etc. With one common 'flaw': we don't beat around the bush. We know everything about the US, it's origins, constitution, demographics, it's culture. And you probably don't even know what our country is called. So there. It's a big world.
It's rather astounding how you can group Americans into a single demographic black hole. I speak more than 3 languages and I've lived in Italy, Austria, and Eastern Europe, aside from the US. This is a friendly forum and I won't dissect the logic above, but I will say that I (as an American) find your comment very offensive.

Generalities. I guess all Dutchmen use them, along with smoking dope. Not that there's anything wrong with smoking dope.
