Stereotypes for the whole family

I ran across what is apparently a pretty old saying in Europe concerning classic stereotypes:

Heaven is where the cops are British, the engineers are German, the cooks are French, the lovers are Italian, and its all organized by the Swiss. Hell is where the cooks are British, the cops are German, the engineers are French, the lovers are Swiss, and its all organized by the Italians.

I likes it. I know that there are a group of people who end up railing against stereotypes, but they wouldn't be stereotypes if they weren't more than a grain of truth to them. It's just something you can't let run away with you.
