With the exchange rate of the swiss franc soaring, the expression Gnomes of Zürich has reappeared. The idea of portraying swiss people as gnomes is ridiculous, and shows the extent of the ignorance of the anglo-saxon people. Swiss people are not gnomes, they are dwarves.
Consider the following:
- The most important project in Switzerland is a tunnel.
- The contribution of Switzerland to physics is a tunnel.
- The fighter jets used by the swiss army are designed to fit into tunnels.
- The futuristic swiss projet that got abandoned was a tunnel.
