Only in the (insert country name here) thread!

I thought this would be a fun thread. I originally was going to make this as "Only in the USA" thread, but since so many people are from other places it is now a "Only in the (insert country name)" thread.

Basically, say something that is ironic, stupid, funny, smart, or whatever about your country. I got this idea from another thread on how certain words are allowed on radio and others are not.

I will begin in a new post.

Only in the USA can you watch a porn that has all cuss words beeped out. This one is my favorite!!

Only in the USA are gays/lesbians not allowed to marry because it threatens the culture. However, any straight person can go on National Television and marry a complete stranger.

And a positive one, only in the USA did veterans fight and die so we could have the freedom we so enjoy.

P.S. I realize some of these are not limited "only" to the USA but thats just the way the saying goes!

Only in Norway can you as a senior at the HS party for everyday for 3-4 weeks (april-may), dressed in outfits with skribbles, being completely crazy, drunk whatever, drive around in buses you and your freinds have "made" with 50 speakers playing the loudest music ever and wake up the whole neighbourhood, and not have anyone looking at you oh and yeah, you can have sex outdoors without ppl reacting too

I've attached a pic the colour of the outfits depends on what kind of HS you're attending. We wrore red, the most common - regular HS. We have out names or nick names on it.. tons of weird labels... and maybe where you're from. a lot of the ppl in my area had Bærum letters with gold on their asses. it's like writing Beverly Hills in US lol.

Only in Wales would you get a statue of a rugby player up in public

I just learned this in another thread, but only in Thailand is it legal to fuck a 10-year old girl or boy, but it's illegal to watch "The King and I."
