Nationalists: The More They Change the More They Stay the Same

Post by Volgadon » Sun December 21st, 2008, 2:48 pm

I was on a Ukrainian Canadian site the other day and read something absolutely hilarious, something so unbelievably nationalistic.
The traditional Ukrainian folk medicine does not contain
that many recipes for aphrodisiacs or 'privorotnoye zelje'
(best translated as 'love potion'). Ukrainian men are
supposed to possess great natural sexual powers and
Ukrainian women are, in the same way, supposed always to
be interested and willing.
It reminded me no end of why art is Indian

That video was great. I'll have to share that with my Indian friend.
