It was indeed the Fiat 500. I could very well have the year wrong. They're run over and over here on BBCAmerica.

I can't find the video, but the joke was that the presenters have been testing different types of small cute cars and they can't make up their minds which is best, so they decide to head for this neighborhood of London and whoever sees one of "their" car first wins. But all they see is Fiat 500s.

don't worry, i'm not weak on such things. i know that bread can be really crappy here. frankly, i don't consume it that much so i can allways afford some of those fancy breads like bavarian, ciabatta, rye, corn (which is my favourite) etc.
i also have problems with bread at coast - it becomes useless soon. i always thought it was because of dry air

Found it! Thanks to the Dutch flitsservice forum! It was aired on July 5th, 2009
Season 13, episode 3
http://www.streetfire.net/video/top-...-1_2381742.htm
The part where they only see Fiat 500's is at part 6 (click on grey box with '6' on right side of video screen)

You should order Croatian calamari (squid), otherwise you get calamari from Chile.

Really, im not surprised that they import calamari from Chile because they have large croatian minority in Chile..so therefore they have good economic relations between countries

Vive la Belgique, et la Suisse, où on a le bon sens de dire "nonante-sept".

Sorry for the French, but at least it's a change of topic. :-P

(EDIT. Oh, wait; for some reason I thought I was on the train wreck that is the borders thread. I have nothing against discussions of calamari. Carry on!)

I learnt French in Switzerland, so I had no idea about this 4×20 back then. We say 7+90, like Germans.

Joke of the year:
European Citizen´s Initiative "30kmh – making streets liveable!"
http://en.30kmh.eu/why-30kmh-20-mph/

But I'm afraid, that minority could outweigh majority with stupid arguments. Politicians are idiots.

30 km/h makes sense in areas that are actually designed as residential areas, with narrow streets, streetside parking, little or no sidewalks, no through traffic. 30 km/h throughout an urban area, even on detached main roads and multilane urban arterials is beyond ridiculous.

As a matter of fact, if you walk in the middle of the street, there are going to be.
