Who to give Flowers


Who to give Flowers

America doesn’t like being confused. :(

Inspired by two things.
1) Canada getting flowers every year from the Netherlands as a thank you for helping them during WWII.
2) A conversation between two guys that I overheard. :D

I just overheard one of my bosses confuse Denmark with Holland (and, obviously, confuse Holland with the Netherlands). First he was talking about Denmark and then paused, saying, "wait, no...Holland? Yeah, in Holland, everyone studies English." This was immediately after he totally botched saying something in French.

I'll give you one guess as to what nationality I am. (Spoiler alert: America, clueless about the world since 1620. It doesn't help that I'm from the southeast US, which is best known for its ignorance about EVERYTHING.)

@danishamerican123 The whole thing is broken logic, but somehow it makes so much sense.

During the war Canada sheltered members of the Dutch royal family, and even declared a maternity ward of a hospital Dutch soil so that the little Dutch princess that was born there would still have Dutch citizenship :)
