Really, the only time the British feature in this sketch are twice (in passing) as the butt of an American joke. I don't know whether you bump into many British visitors in your particular neck of the woods in Estonia but I can assure you the view the British have of Estonia is extremely positive and well aware of the Estonians’ technological prowess and modernity. Tallinn in particular is heaving with British tourists all agog at the marvels of Estonia and they all come home raving about it.

If a similar sketch about eastern European online dating had been made by a British comedy troupe rather than an American one, I would be astonished if they were to choose Estonia as the home country of the ‘socially/technologically backwards’ love interest — more likely it would be a Carpathian nation that would feature.

Move along now … no British sense of superiority to see here! Chips off shouldersicon_smile.gif

Best wishes,
Alex.

Nice of you to respond. It looks like my previous post was hidden for contravening the rules somehow but anyway, I appreciate the response.

Best wishes,
Alex.
