Right ,as promised, then as carried out from the BA A380 thread. Udo, why do you wear Lederhosen you German/Bavarian fool? Sorry, but those clothes make you foolish (an image Germans need to shake off). Your becoming as bad as the strikes of the French (Who are also Fools).
And to that other guy from that thread, get a sense of humour
When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

Imagine a noisy drunk trying to pick a fight and not even able to stand straight...
Yes, I can imagine that very well, reminds me of my holidays on Zakynthos/Greece or in Benidorm/Spain. Fortunately all the girls decided for the guys who were able to "effect something" even after a few drinks .

I´ve witnessed the same in Ireland (distant relatives of the Scots...).
We had a company party, the company had rented a pub and a live band. There were a lot of Irish coworkersthere with their girlfriends, and us foreigners. For the whole evening, the Irish guys just sat at the table and downed pints.
The girls, being girls, wanted to dance etc..
Well, us sober foreigners happily obliged....
The blokes never even noticed...

GKIRK: The only image the Germans have to shake-off are those stupid British tourists buying Lederhosen as a souvenir and walk in it while in Germany! And that WW2 image, though most Germans are doing the best they can to show that they are not like they were 60 years ago.
Come-on, I have seen more Scots wearing a kilt then Germans wearing Lederhosen. It's culture we are talking about here... respect that. The world would be boring without Klumps, kilts, lederhosen, Sombreros and well the rest of it.
