The Definition of Heaven and Hell:

A little European humour here.

In Heaven:

The police are English,
the cooks are French,
the mechanics are German,
the Italians are the lovers,
and it is all organized by the Swiss.

In Hell:

The English are the cooks,
the French are the mechanics,
the police are German,
the Swiss are the lovers,
and it is all organized by the Italians.

Ireland 2005
A little snap of Ireland...
which has nothing whatsoever to do
with this post.

There is more like this:

What is Ötzi's nationality?

1. He could be Italian: He wore sandals hiking in the mountains.
2. He can not be Austrian: They found brain cells.
3. He could also be German: He got tools.
4. But most likely he is Swiss: He was overtaken by a glacier!

Love the little snap of Ireland. Indeed a perfect place. Your little analogy reminds of the following - a true story of course:

Once upon a time God went missing for seven days. Michael the Archangel eventually found him and asked him where he had been. God breathed a deep sigh, pointed through the clouds and replied: "Look at what I'm after making."
The Archangel Michael looked down, puzzled and said: "What is it?"
God replied: "It's another planet, but I put life on this one. There'll be a balance between everything on it. For example, there's North America and South America. North America is going to be rich and South America poor. Over here I've put a continent of whites to the north and another one of blacks in the south."
Then the Archangel asked: "What's that green dot there?"
"Ahhh, that's the Emerald Isle," God replied. "That's a very special place. It will be the most glorious spot on Earth - beautiful mountains, lakes, rivers, streams and an exquisite coastline. The people here are going to be great fun and they're going to be found traveling the world. They'll be great playwrights and poets, singers and songwriters."
Michael the Archangel was suitably impressed, gasping in wonder and admiration. Then it occurred to him: "Hang on a second, what about BALANCE?! This place is perfect - You said there was going to be balance..."
God replied wisely: "Wait 'til you see the fuckers I've put next door to them!"

and the irish would be in charge of AA in hell.

and speaking of the british isles and cooking- first of all marmite?!??

and secondly england/ireland/scotland must be the only place where you can go into any restaurant no matter what type of food or how fancy it may be and get a side of chips with vinegar.
