I've seen this one before but it always makes me smile

In Heaven…

the mechanics are German
the chefs are French
the police are British
the lovers are Italian
and everything is organized by the Swiss.
In Hell…

Excellent stuff. Followed through and came across this one, which actually had me giggling out loud. http://www.exile.ru/transient/151/europeans-chart.html I particularly loved the 'bad beer' of the Belgians.

Shitty food and bad beer - whoever said that about the Swiss should have some Rösti and Bratwurst (mustard is NOT debatable if in St. Gallen) or a huge piece of Butterzopf and they'd change their mind in a flash.

Europe is full of English expats, and the longer they live abroad, the more they seem to hate their host country
That's why we have the rants' section.
