Perhaps not, but maybe he could tone down the intensely smug / self-satisfied thing? I know loads of Austrians, and that's not a specific national trait of theirs.


I'm sure 'us dreary lot' would appreciate it.


Bill Bryson, in his book Notes From A Small Island, recounted a trip he made in his younger days with a couple of German lads through part of Austria. The awkward experiences they had there caused one of the Germans to remark:


"Austria's actually a nice country. The problem is that it's got fucking Austrians in it!!"

F*ck your Honda Civic, I've a horse outside,
F*ck your Subaru, I have a horse outside.
And f*ck your Mitsubishi, I've a horse outside,
If you're lookin' for a ride, I've got a horse outside

Austrians and Germans, especially Germans from north of the "white sausage equator" (https://en.wikipedia...eißwurstäquator), tend to have a similar relationship to e.g. northerners & southerners, Yorkshiremen & Lancashiremen, etc. in Britain :-)
