This is an excellent opportunity to communicate to you, my dear American friends, three reasons why we do not particularly like you as much as we, inhabitants of the sweet tiny cute little Kingdom of the White Oranges, should.

  1. Your insensitive, insulting, ruthless and pejorative habit to use our National Flag as a sign that indicates that a shop, that sells useless humbug and trinkets, is open. The more insensitive, because those signs are 24/7 left to the damaging influences of sun and weather, while it is against the law to use it for commercial objectives, to print words on it, and hang it out between sunrise and sunset.
  2. Your even more insensitive, insulting, ruthless and pejorative habit to use the Royal Dutch Color of Orange for the suits of your prisoners (both legal and illegal).
  3. I forgot the third reason, but I will come back to you. Something with the color of someone’s complexion, I think.

Friend of life and beauty and foe of spoilers of life and beauty. Golden marriage. Grandfather. Pianist and micro poet. Dutch, European.
