I think you got the order backwards.

With Belgian beer, cheese, and chocolate, how can they not bee the coolest?

Really, does anyone here find American beer, cheese, or chocolate better (or even REMOTELY equal)?
And let us not forget Hercule Poirot. Take that Columbo!

Well, my boyfriend is French, so I suppose I'm a little biased. God, is he French.

Re: Americans Voted The Coolest People In World, Belgiums Ranked As Dirt?

Lol!
When my Swiss husband came to visit me in the States (before we were married), he was amazed when he saw the "Easy Cheese" in the store. He even took a photo of it, put it up on his myspace profile and labeled it:

"The land where even the cheese is easy."

A quote from my favourite actor Colin Farrel: "Belgium is famous for two things, Chocolates and Pedophiles, and they only make the chocolate to get to the children"

What do they use the "French" fries for? I think they excel in that field too.

The home of the saxophone should be ranked as pretty cool, shouldn't it?

And groan for the pedophile comment.

Haha, the Belgiums invented the saxophone? That should secure them the #1 spot of the worlds uncoolest people with a good margin.
