Top Ten Tuesday - Swiss things

Seeing as football has gripped the nation this week and seeing as we're playing the Swiss in a crucial football game tomorrow, I thought I'd devote this week's edition of Top Ten Tuesday to all things Swiss! So without further ado:

1. Swiss neutrality - The Swiss take their neutrality seriously unlike ourselves. There was no 'neutral on the side of the British' situation for the Swiss. They do what they say! If there's a war you better believe they're not taking part!

2. Wary of EU - Switzerland is not a member state of the EU. They are clearly very wise!
3. Swiss Army Knives - Where would we be without the Swiss Army Knife?
4. Ursula Andress - Yes, everyone's favourite Bond girl is Swiss!
5. Swiss Alps - They be mighty impressive Alps!
6. Swiss cheese - The Swiss love their cheese, and we love it!
7. Roger Federer - If he hadn't come along, Tim Henman might have been the one winning Wimbledon!
8. Martina Hingis - Martina will always be remembered for the way she whooped arse Swiss-style when she burst onto the women's tennis scene. She likes to shower as well which is always nice.
9. Swiss motto - I like the Swiss motto - 'One for all, all for one'. Where did they get the idea for that one I wonder?
10. They signed up to the Dublin Convention. Go Dublin! I mean...Switzerland!

So there you have it. Feel free to comment on my choices or to offer up some of your own.

And as for you Switzerland, we Irish will treat you nice for today, but soon you will have the entire nation going after you! Neutrality is not an option tomorrow!
