It’s your day, Luxembourg…

Yes, it’s true…
Today is your day, Luxembourg…
Luxembourg… the Delaware of Europe…
Luxy… can I call you Luxy?

We’re all friends here, right?

Luxy was born… sometime… actually, it’s kinda hard to pin down.
They’re always gaining their independence from somebody or the other…
As evidenced by their official state motto, which states (and I swear to you this is the truth) “We want to remain what we are.”

Also known as the Popeye School of Philosophy, which holds as a guiding premise (if I’m lyin’ I’m cryin’ ain’t shed a tear) that they’d “…gladly pay you Tuesday (Dënschdeg) for a hamburger (Hamburger) today.”

Luxy was a founding member of the European Union.
Because… c’mon!
If you’ve got a chunk of land larger than the aforementioned Delaware, but just over half it’s population… and your nestled in the armpits of France, Germany and Belgium… then the EU is just the deodorant you’ve been looking for…

Right…?

Luxy also has it’s own official language, known as Luxembourgish…
Not to be confused with Frenchish, Germanish or Belgish.
Or even Delawareish…

For all you insomniacs out there, I offer Luxy’s national anthem, for your snoozing enjoyment.

WOW!
Wasn’t that riveting, boys and girls?
Can’t you just feel the blood pumping?

Somewhere…
Certainly not anywhere I personally have any type of access to…
But somewhere…

Ah, Luxy…
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall,
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands,
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this…

Wait a minute…
That’s not right…

Anywho…

The capital of Luxembourg is called…

Wait for it…

Luxembourg City.

I know
Crazy, right…?

And along with Brusselsbourg and Strasbourg, Luxembourg (City) are the three official capitals of the European Union…
Just a whole lot o’ bourgin’ goin’ on today…
Resistance is futile.
You will be assimilated.

Also, if you sight along Brussels to Luxembourg City, you could probably take out Strasbourg with a fairly simple cue shot into the corner pocket…
No English hardly required…

Good thing, too.

May not be any English available to the EU, after today…
