The Xenophobe's Guide to the Czechs

The Xenophobe's Guide to the Czechs

All roads lead to Czechia. The Czechs seem to believe that the Earth is the center of the Universe, Europe is the centre of the Earth, and Czechia is at the centre of Europe. Reality Czechs. The ability to put up with a situation adjusting as needs must has been elevated to an art form. Chuckling Czechs. Czech humor is distinguished by mad screams, breast and thigh slapping, and uncontrollable braying. Top of the Czech list. The Czechs would like to be seen as the cauldron in which all that's good from West and East melts; and if not the best, then at least one of the top nations in the world.
