Well we've had that discussion here before. But many of us find this sort of joke NOT funny at all. Thinking that this sort of 'joke' is worthy of a public forum does smack of ....


Yes I remember that discussion, and I am not asking that you find it funny, nor am I actually trying to say it's funny as it was maybe in bad taste, but surely you cannot possibly imply a joke makes somebody a racist??

Even if you don't find a statement funny, you can still recognize when it's not a serious statement, can't you??



EDIT: Also, poking is not the same as beating with a bat, seriously guys...

Re: Are Swiss girls materialistic?

Ayit, let's get the thread back on track,if we can.. I know it is hard not to dive head straight into other heavy stereotypes,in a thread that is already meant to stereotype.

Yes and no! I understood your joke was a joke but in the same time, it annoys me when my mother send me jokes by email about blacks, Muslims and arabes. I find it very very bad taste considering her son in law is Muslim. She also us the n word to describe someone with dark skin and if I mention to her that it is not nice, it is racist and so bad taste, she will jump into some lame excuses about being jokes, etc.

I can call my husband a terrorists but YOU can't! Same of a black guy calling his bro with the n word. YOU can't.

So surely as a romanian I can make fun of gypsies- since the rest of the world thinks we're all gypsies anyway!


But yes, i do understand what you're saying.

Re: Are Swiss girls materialistic?

According to several statistics your best chance with swiss girls is when you are a tall beefy swedish guy with blond hair and blue eyes, interested in fashion and...washed! Followed by the turkish, italians and dutch.

Schweizerinnen lieben Türken
Schweizer Frauen haben mit zwanzig Prozent die Schweden zu den attraktivsten Männern Europas gekürt. «Der Stereotyp des Schweden ist halt gross, muskulös, blond und hat blaue Augen», erklärt Psychologieprofessor Fred Mast. Doch die Schweizerinnen stehen auch auf orientalische Männer: Mit 16 Prozent wählten sie die Türken auf den zweiten Platz. Auf den nächsten Plätzen liegen die Italiener (14 Prozent) und Holländer (13 Prozent)

Re: Are Swiss girls materialistic?

I was so sure this thread is a flamebait, and in 2 days it is over 158 replies....
way to go, EF rocks!

Sorry, to keep ontopic, I do not think Swiss girls are materialistic. They are however, more exposed to materials than say a ...non-swiss girl.

Have fun guys.

He'll be back, and will have plenty of rope ...

The last few posts have actually managed to be on topic (see what judicious banning achieves?). Let's see how this thread progresses, but if it goes way off topic again, it'll get closed.

Of course, that survey about Swiss girls' preferences was limited to European men. Once you open it up to Aussies, well, obviously everything changes ...

Re: Are Swiss girls materialistic?

After reading the title of the thread and the body content, I think, Swiss girls care about a man's IQ level. ~
