Emblems of Nationhood

Discussion in 'Jokes, funnies an NSFW' started by Steve Bowles, Wednesday December 6, 2017.

  1. There are images the mind conjures up when the name of a country is brought up in conversation. They may not be the same for everyone, depending upon your locus, but I think we may agree that these are the ones most thought of:

    USA, of course.

    Rondina! (Russia, Motherland)

    Middle Kingdom (China, for you round-eyes)

  4. I’m sure I posted something to that effect a while ago but it seems to have vanished...
     
  5. Drag queens seem to be emblematic of a certain quirk in Britain. With Yanks it's cowboys; with Brits anything "camp".
     
  6. That's a bit random,...like saying every time I see a fat bloke , I think of America.

  10. There used to be a British sense of wryness and insouciance. It may have skipped you. When you think of America, you might want to think of the only country covering your six.
     
  11. Where does a totally Australian concept, created and performed by an Australian relate to any perceived English concept of"wryness and insouciance(?)"
    I actually worry more about, "friendly fire",...I'd rather have you in front of us where we can see you than covering our six.

    1916? Wasn't it 1917? Yes, 6th April 1917.

    This isn't how I think of France.
    They have possibly the best workers rights and the best health service in the Western world and weren't silly enough to hang on to America's coattails and rush into an unjustified war.
    Good old France.
