Dutch Patriotism at its best

"Beesjes" (little beasts) - the bizarre mascot for the 2010 Dutch World cup
team, handed out for free with every purchase at Albert Heijn supermarket, and thus hanging off every available surface in every home, car and bike of every Amsterdammer, due to the Monopoly Mr. Heijn has over the city's supermarkets. I couldn't tell you one thing about the cup, but what I did do was collect a good thirty of these critters. I feel an affection for them that I can't really explain!
