My advice to boycott Holland seems to come with the task of monitoring how much advance the world is making on this great goal. Already Greek consumers INKA are calling for a “mpoukotaz“, the Poles want a “bojkotowanie” and mathematics professor Tim Gowers concentrates on boycotting Reed Elsevier. All this should not be confused with the boycott of the town Holland, Michigan, which might be a worthy cause too yet is wrong by one continent.
Monitoring all this caused me to see the hilarious exchange on PolishForums.pl where a man looks for a woman. The exchange of ideas is like in times immemorial, it might be how a protestant from Sweden looks for a catholic in France, or how Don Quijote looks for his Dulcinea. Transferred to modern times, we see a muslim from London who looks for a Polish woman since he has observed how beautiful they are. The exchange of views takes six pages. The first response is whether he wants a woman or a passport. Only in response 22 the eager lover complains that he is not being taken serious. Reading this is great fun. I haven’t read all yet, and cannot say that he eventually succeeds. See here. Of course: let us hope that they find each other and live happily ever after.
