That my result is A=18 B=8 C=5 is the first thing, and sorry to spoil the joy and fun, the questions are boooooring and in fact I am sure that a majority of Swiss people would have only a small number of Cs with possibly many Bs

This means that the definition on the bottom means that most Swiss are NOT Swiss. In the way of Professor Ziegler "La Suisse n'éxiste pas".

The person who devised these questions either has no sense of humour or a very weird distorted sense of humour

Sorry, beg to differ. Funniest thing I've seen in ages and more than a tad true. But I am sure that you can laugh at yourself too ...

Lets bump this one for a good Sunday laugh...
And what a good laugh I had. Thank you!!

I guess back in 2006 the poster couldn't know that many of those things mentioned in that test would come up over and over again on the forum.

That my result is A=18 B=8 C=5 is the first thing, and sorry to spoil the joy and fun, the questions are boooooring and in fact I am sure that a majority of Swiss people would have only a small number of Cs with possibly many Bs

This means that the definition on the bottom means that most Swiss are NOT Swiss. In the way of Professor Ziegler "La Suisse n'éxiste pas".

The person who devised these questions either has no sense of humour or a very weird distorted sense of humour
it's obviously hyperbole but when has that ever gotten in the way of a good laugh? Being half swiss, reading this started an inner turmoil with part of me wanting to lol and the other wanting to groan the OP..... I went and made a sandwich instead.

Sorry, beg to differ. Funniest thing I've seen in ages and more than a tad true. But I am sure that you can laugh at yourself too ...
Well, you possibly are right, but I absolutely doubt it. And the questions ARE boring !

A few of the questions were good and to the point. They simply should have cut the number of questions down and it would have been a good joke.

Worse even that there were some questions which might have been to the point in Germany but not in Switzerland.

To have it with Charlie Chaplin, "good humour is the most serious business on earth"

Re: Are You Swiss?

i think you'd count as swiss if you have 2 or more 'C' answers. i'd also add the following tests:

C. you tried to not choose a 'C' answer based on some loophole or technicality

C. after the test you criticise the quiz for being incorrect/boring/inappropriate

C. after the test you try to rationalise how having more than one or two 'C' answers doesn't mean anything

Sorry, but I've never read anything so true to the word as this...always love distorted humour! All a) and b) answers made me really homesick...

Yes, but in my opinion the Germans and the Swiss have more than a little in common ...

Sure, but the Germans on the beach are much swifter in placing their towels

Re: Are You Swiss?

I am proud of whatever they call us. Germany or Switzerland for that matter or much more successful than any of the nations this quiz would compare them to. Why should we care!
