Scandinavia and the World
All Work and No Play

All Work and No Play

After the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 the Scandinavian countries took good care of the Hungarian refugees, and the Hungarians were so grateful for all the help that they worked extra hard and only had short breaks so they could pay the Scandinavians back. Unfortunately it made the other workers look bad, so it had to be explained to them that they had to rest more and relax a bit. The Hungarians were amazed that they were told to just sit around and eat food and drink beer and thought they had gone to heaven. XD

I asked a Hungarian what the Hungarians stereotypically looked like, and he said, "He should have an impressive moustache! We are famous for our mustaches!" so that us why he ended up like this.

Heh, you all left out the fact, in our language have the second or third most swear words, and because we got some grammatical rules, wich we have a lot of words with different usage... Well, its a joke about if ever be a swearing contest in the world, a hungarian competitor would be able swearing hours, without repeting any word!
And yes, no matter what, we love complaining. About anything. This doesnt mean, we are discontent, sometimes we just like being grumpy.

Hungarian scientists are great, indeed, but sadly i cant say that to our politicians too... (Very similar like the joke with the americans was in the comic.)

I thank in the name of hungarians all the compliments, but i hardly can say we are saints... Just wanna point out, there is a bad side of us too.

Few realize that American Film industry in early days and through golden era 1950's classic Hollywood films was driven by the genius of Hungarian artists, technicians, sound and light experts, and directors.
Also the Manhattan Project (to perfect atomic bomb) had unusual number of Hungarian physicists and lab technicians.
Actress Hetty Lamar, beautiful Hollywood film star, when still in Europe, spied on german munitions plants; she had a degree in physics and invented a bomb gun--sight which gave the allies the best capabilities for shooting down Nazi airplanes.

Your stereotypical Hungary is very good. :) We also like cooking, and feeding our guests, we have really cheap alcohol, so most hungarians drink a lot. And when someone asks us "how are you?" we start complaining about kinda everything :D And yeah, sister Hungary has to have braids

I thank the Nordic countries for taking refugees

Also as an idea if you were to create an Austria Hungary
It would funny if they were Siamese twins

Idea inspired by countryballs
