Re: Why I HATE Switzerland.

If I really want to annoy someone here, I just tell them I have a joke for them: "A woodpecker walks into a bar and asks 'Is the bar tender here?'"
Keeps them going for days. I also find it works well with stupid people back home, too. A good friend had an insufferable girlfriend who i once told that joke to. After three weeks, she finally cracked and asked her boyfriend what it meant. I did, however, get one of the best back-handed compliments from her. I walked into the pub and I heard her say 'Oh, not him - I get headaches when I talk to him'.
