Lekker Ding

As long as I'm on a Dutch kick today...

Dutch Cabinet members all received Audi A6s as their official vehicles at a cost of around $66,000 per. At least five of those cabinet officials got their doctors to right them notes stating that the ride of the A6 was bad for their delicate backs and joints and were subsequently given Audi A8s ($119,000 a pop) to relieve their suffering.

Um, a long way back from 460 calories per day, huh?

Lekker Ding!!

I once asked my allergist to write me a prescription for a beach house because my allergies are much better near the ocean. Maybe I should just move to Holland instead.

Ah, the payback of the polder mentality. Delicious, nutritious, and a damn smooth ride.

Shame being a rich, successful socialist state can't make the weather any less crap.
