Most common joke I ever hear related to the Genevois is that most of Suisse do not view them as part of the country
To which I always answer that they're free to reject the 300 million/year paid by Geneva for the péréquation financière.

My OH found it very strange when he first visited Switzerland, to see cars with VD numberplates - as a junior doctor

Some great jokes, but we’ll keep Ruth Dreifuss out! Not something you want to share with a bunch of pre-teens!

Btw anyone knows if Migros/Coop sell these marmites genevoises at the moment? I’m guessing it’s seasonal, but it’s not clear to me how early they are placed on the market.
Merci!
They are already in the Migros in La Côte VD, near to Geneva. On-line perhaps? I doubt they would sell them in their shops further away. It’s only the last few years you could get them in Nyon.

People from Fribourg are not reputed for being slow, but for being stinky !
Exactly. That's why the storchs are flying circles over Fribourg.


They need one wing to hold the nose closed.
