How To Annoy Europeans With Just One Sentence

Want to know how to piss off people from different European nations with just one sentence? Then you’ve come to the right place. Check out this trusty map to see what we mean. It was recently posted on Facebook by Sigmagfx, and as you can see, it’s full of useful phrases to make your traveling experience more…well…exciting. Try going to Romania and telling them how much you love their “capital” Budapest, or the next time you’re in Switzerland, don’t forget to let them know just how inferior their chocolate is compared to Belgium’s. You’re sure to come home with a hilarious anecdote or two…just as long as you survive…

Ugh. "This video is not available in your country", the sentence that used to make me want to throw my laptop out the window. Now that GEMA and YouTube came to an agreement, here's to hoping I'll never have to see this sentence again for the rest of my life.

I think Macedonians will not be very irritated if you call them "South Serbs". Try "You are Bulgarians, right?" We, Bulgarians, are very angry when someone call our alphabet "russian alphabet", because actually russians toke it from us. It's originally a bulgarian alphabet, created on the base of greek alphabet by the scholars of St.St Cyrilus and Methodius.

There are actually countless ways to piss Turks off. Like saying Greek yoghurt or naming any member of our cusine Greek. Also you can try your chances by asking how many wives does my father have and if we ride camels to work. I wouldn't recommend though, because we're a vulgar nation and your attempt at having a little annoying banter might end up in emergency room.

The reason why "Still use the Russian alphabet?" is annoying to Bulgarians: First, because Bulgarian adopted the Cyrillic alphabet even before Russian when Russia did not exist, in fact, it was a Bulgarian invention. It was developed at Preslav Literary School in the medieval Bulgarian Empire. Second, because the alphabet is not a "property" of the ones who "created" it, if we think so, the Italians are the only one who should use the Latin/Roman alphabet, since it was created in Rome, it would be like asking an English speaker "Still use the Italian alphabet"?, or asking a Persian "Still use the Arabic alphabet"? Third, because saying this is like saying that Bulgarians are "wrong" because they use a different alphabet than English, and it might sound like: "you have to abandon your language and culture and embrace our culture, because we are right and you wrong", which could sound like something imperialist.

IT isn't annoying, it's just a terrible lie suggesting that poles was responsible for killings in Auschwitz, Treblinka, Sobibór, Majdanek and other GERMAN NAZI death camps in occupied Poland. Please, if You don't understand why it's so important for us in Poland just read, or feel free to visit my country and see it on your own eyes. And remember making fun of holocaust is making fun of 6000000 people who was killed only in Auschwitz.

Being british, that would work as well as you mean soccer, that would irritate every guy in england, probably in scotland,wales and N ireland too. Just as with argentina when i went - they would say the Malvinas and I would reply you mean the falklands they speak english there, remember you tried once before and why they aren't the Malvinas. It was good you lost because the military dictatorship fell and now you're a democracy. It irritates argentinians much more saying opposing comments.

I think Macedonians will not be very irritated if you call them "South Serbs". Try "You are Bulgarians, right?" We, Bulgarians, are very angry when someone call our alphabet "russian alphabet", because actually russians toke it from us. It's originally a bulgarian alphabet, created on the base of greek alphabet by the scholars of St.St Cyrilus and Methodius.

I'd say for Belgians it would be "Oh, these French Fries are really good." And similarly for greeks - "You make excellent Turkish coffee". My wife saw Greeks go literally purple with rage on that. :)

Marie, obviously you have not met an obnoxious American with tunnel (narrow) vision. I can say this as I'm American and find French wines superior, as I do many, many European contributions to culture.

Polish death camps is spot on, I think there is a penalty of up to 3 years in prison for that nowadays... I'm all for educating that it was the Nazi Germany, but penalties are not going to discourage the offenders - I think the last time it was ZDF that did this... I don't see any ZDF managers going to prison ;)

Most of Turkey is in Asia, but part of it is in Europe, so it's a European country AND an Asian country. Or just simply Eurasian.

For any foreigner who comes in ExYu countries - DO NOT SAY WHAT IS WRITTEN ON THAT MAP (not even in a joke). I repeat: Do NOT SAY THOSE THINGS. You might ended up in bad condition. We still didn't outgrow this enough to take those words without giving you some serious injuries. Even I need to be cautious about what I'm writing here, If I'm not, I'll start another war in comment section. You'll be forced to remove this. Things are bad... rly, rly bad.

Idiots. The cyrillic alphabeth was made for Bulgarians long before Russia exist. When we had our golden age of culture people in England, Spain and Germany were considering to speak latin only to their horses.
