    Someone just rang at my door (4 O'clock PM, Belgrade time).
    I opened the door and saw an old man in peasant clothes.
    - Hello, Mister, I am selling potatoes.
    [He means in big bags /"economy pack"/]
    - No, thanks.

    “I think” said the sweet potato, “therefore I yam.”

    In Serbia people drink tea only when they have a flu or cold.

    Then they are missing out on the greatest invention since or before sliced bread.

    Serbia is the only country I know that considers potato soup a delicacy.
    For something really special , pork rind.

    My safe and predictable world of sturdy umbrellas and starched mustaches has been severely challenged by this thread. (Even my spelling of moustaches was auto corrected).

    There is something very unsettling about having one's moustache auto corrected...
