Of course you can't do this here as there is NO KFC IN SWITZERLAND
What you can do though is dress up as one of the three kings around christmas and as a bunny at easter to pay your rent...
Things are changing even in Switzerland.
Great, what a positive outlook that is...

That's the well toned, blonde dude in the stetson who plays guitar in his underwear, right? Perish the thought of anyone even contemplating doing such a thing here at, for example, Belle Vue in Zurich! . . . . Would be so if it happened though, hehehe!!

Even while reaping no benefit from that tax money. Not surprising. Thanks.
Most Americans probably benefited from government spending when they were children and many will benefit again if they return home when they retire. Arguably there are benefits from the US government for US citizens living abroad as well, for example being evacuated from a country when natural or man made disasters strike.

Say, what!?! Did you just start drinking (again no doubt ). We should start another thread Captain Morgan's vs Appletons . Now, let's get back on the America vs Switzerland fisticuffs (vice versa) track. Hehehe! . . . So, over to you and the other main players in that. Cheers dude and thanks for the laughs.

Yeah! I have seen him a couple of times but so far only in shorts, mercifully . Arguably, the outdoor elements have not, perhaps, been so kind to him, unlike the other dude in NY .
