What comes to a German's mind when he thinks of Netherlands?

This is my first attempt at Dutch cheese art, and it is dedicated to Peri22b, the master of cheese art. :-)

looking forward to your windmill...

I have really thought about windmills, but only after posting this image. However I'm over 12 and under 80 years old, so windmills would probably be inappropriate for my age. :-) I should maybe combine every stereotype in one slice of cheese: Windmills in the corners, tulips at the sides, drugs in the center.

There is a strange aspect about these stereotypes: Germans, at least here in Aachen, don't associate Switzerland with liberal drug policies; even though the Swiss have partially legalized Heroine. But the reason might be the great distance to the Swiss border. If I lived in Freiburg, I would maybe carve a syringe and a lemon into a slice of cheese, and think it's a slightly bad joke about Switzerland.

OK, try Wilhelm Tell from Swiss cheese... ;)

Ha, ha, ha, that's a good idea! One of the holes in the cheese could be the apple.

Ich habe einige Jahre in den NL gelebt. Die Toleranz von Politik u. Verwaltung gegenüber soft drugs nimmt stetig ab, jedenfalls in Amsterdam und Rotterdam. Ansonsten gehts dort generell sehr entspannter zu als in Deutschland, auch ohne drugs. ;-)

Ah... sehr interessant. Ich habe auch in der Zeitung gelesen, dass die liberale Drogenpolitik in den Niederlanden langsam zurückgenommen wird.

In welcher Weise ist das Leben in den Niederlanden denn entspannter?

Nach Bangladesch, sind die Niederlande das am dichtesten besiedelte Land der Welt - das hilft ja wohl nicht gerade beim Entspannung ...

:) Cool art. I like it. Did you use smoked cheese ?

Eike has replied to Aref Nammari (goplay…
Thank you very much!

No, this is Edam cheese. Smoked cheese would have been very appropriate for this piece. However, before reading your comment I didn't know that smoked cheese existed. Wikipedia even claims that several Dutch cheeses have smoked varieties. :-)

no wonder actually, with so much... smoke in the air!

Eike has replied to peri22b
Are you saying, that all cheese is really smoked cheese because of all the pollution in the air?

yes, this is what I meant, but not every place is the same..

Eike has replied to Precharmant
Thank you, but what should I fabricate for Germany. It can't be Bologna sausage (Fleischwurst) with the face of Adolf Hitller, or a swastika in it. That would be too much bad taste for me. Head cheese (Sülze) or blood sausage with cars in it, oddly shaped bread? Hmm... I guess I'm just not funny.
7 years ago.
peri22b has replied to Eike
hahaha, which would be bad taste, the sausage or A.H.?
What's wrong with a swastika? It's like men banning all pens because there's so much Sh*t written with them! (Of course it's not so simple in this case, but as non-German I'm allowed to philosophize).

Well, why don't you try the BMW of VW logo on some?

Eike has replied to peri22b
The idea of the Adolf Hitler Wurst is from Tomi Ungerer, I read he served it when Germans came to visit him.

Germans really associate themselves with cars. Maybe a blood sausage with cars and run over people. It would be very cheesy, but you can't be subtle if you fabricate images from food.

What about a Jesus blood sausage? If you make him out of cheese you can call him Cheesus.

By the way; the Dutch bible belt is nearly unknown in Germany.

I just realized: Pery has already created a Cheesus image, and I even selected it as a favorite. This must have subconsciously inspired me.

Ich weiß nicht. Ich wohne so weit weg von Tschechien; ich habe gar keine Vorurteile über Tschechen. Vielleicht wären speziell gestaltete Bierflaschen angemessen?

das war ein zwinkern wegen der mittlerweile liberalen drogen-gesetze in tschechien ;-)

Ach, interessant; davon wusste ich gar nichts! Ich bin der Meinung: Harte Gesetze gegen Drogenkonsum sind Geldverschwendung.
