I no longer trust John Oliver's status as a reliable news source.

It has to be amazing and weird and possibly even kinda scary to have national leaders respond to your throwaway jokey comments. Then again, Oliver seems to start small and work his way up. First he was fighting with Trinidad, now Luxembourg... what would be next on that list? Tonga? Cyprus?

Ah scratch that idea, Trinidad is actually bigger than Luxembourg. Thanks, reality.

Never mind that, on The Bugle podcast he memorably coined the term fuckeulogy to commemorate Osama Bin Laden.

It is also argued that The Bugle contributed to the downfall of at least Silvio Berlusconi and Muammar Gaddafi.


Oh, how I miss The Bugle... LWT is a small consolation and almost as funny. But still. :longing:

Stormy will be thrilled that you thought Luxembourg was bigger than, well, anywhere else.

Every time I see LWT I think it's London Weekend Television and my brain has to do a full stop, then go back and figure out what you are actually talking about.

a luxembourger defends Luxembourg on reddit:

https://www.reddit.com/r/Luxembourg/...embourg_facts/

Quote:
No! There is a lot of stuff here! Castels, the grand-ducs palace, the Coque, Fond de Gras, Abtei Echternach, Bockfiels, more castels, beautiful landscapes, lots of forest,...
short form: France sucks, Luxembourg rules!
So - we have Castels (sic), the grand-dukes palace (and castel), a large Coque, an industrial estate, a castel with monks in, a big rock with a castel on it, more Castels, and some trees.

So Luxembourg is really interesting if you are into Castels, or Coque. With a small side-trip to look at some industrial heritage.

Do they also have løveli lakes? A wonderful telephøne system?
At least we do know there is at least one interesting furry animal.

Donald Trump's grandfather Frederik Trumpf came from Kallstadt, a mere 2 hrs drive from Luxembourg.
