Euphemistically speaking


Road tested the attached page from ‘The Economist’ on the Austrian half of the family and a few Austrian friends. Consensus was:

  • Amusing
  • Recognisable English trait
  • “You say that a lot” to about a third of the suggestions

Based on this use of language I think we can for once say I conform to a stereotype.
