No girls in poland undergo circumcision, and it’s VERY VERY rare that a boy does. Our toilet paper is also exactly the same stuff as used everywhere else in the world.

WTF is this shit? Polish girls aren`t circumcision at all. NEVER EVER. You mixed as witch some african countries.

That’s odd. Where does that info about circumcision come from? I think that most of Poles don’t even know that there is something like female circumcision. I’ve heard that it happens somewhere in Sub-Saharan Africa, but in Europe?!?

“There is only one desert (the Bledow Desert) in Poland.” Why do you think it´s a strange? It´s normal, that we have NO desert in central Europe. Isn´t this an american page? They really think, that Poland is placed in the central Africa :-)

Ads on Polish TV show mothers calling their children in from play in order to feed them candy. – thats what I found from some US website. Very funny stuff.
