    Talking Being Welsh...

    One we pulled in today

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Being Welsh is about driving in a German car to an Irish pub for a Belgian beer, then travelling home, grabbing an Indian curry or a Turkish kebab on the way, to sit on Swedish furniture and watch American shows on a Japanese TV.

    And the most Welsh thing of all? Suspicion of all things foreign!

    Only in Wales can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance.

    Only in Wales do supermarkets make sick people walk all the way to the back of the shop to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.

    Only in Wales do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries and a DIET coke.

    Only in Wales do banks leave both doors open and chain the pens to the counters.

    Only in Wales do we leave cars worth thousands of pounds on the drive and lock our junk and cheap lawn mower in the garage.


    Only in Wales do we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won't miss a call from someone we
    didn't want to talk to in the first place.

    Only in Wales are there disabled parking places in front of a skating rink.

    NOT TO MENTION...

    3 Welsh people die each year testing if a 9v battery works on their tongue.

    142 Welsh people were injured in 1999 by not removing all pins from new shirts.

    58 Welsh people are injured each year by using sharp knives instead of screwdrivers.

    31 Welsh people have died since 1996 by watering their Christmas tree while the fairy lights were plugged in.

    19 Welsh people have died in the last 3 years believing that Christmas decorations were chocolate.

    Welsh Hospitals reported 4 broken arms last year after Xmas cracker-pulling accidents.

    18 Welsh people had serious burns in 2000 trying on a new jumper with a lit cigarette in their mouth.

    A massive 543 Welsh people were admitted to A&E in the last two years after trying to open bottles of beer with their teeth.

    5 Welsh people were injured last year in accidents involving out-of-control Scalextric cars.

    And finally...

    In 2000 eight Welsh people were admitted to hospital with fractured skulls incurred whilst throwing up into the toilet.
