Living in Luxembourg
( published 10th January 2002 )
the other day a friend here in London ( yes I have friends in London...! ) asked me who the hell would want to live in Luxembourg. Well here is a damn good reason: the Luxembourg government has AGAIN cut taxes. Now, if you are a married couple with 2 children, you only start paying taxes when you earn more than EUR 3,600 per month ( £ 2,200 or $ 3,160 ). Cool, hey?
At the same time car prices are between 15 and 30 percent cheaper than in the UK ( and they have the steering wheel on the correct side of the car ), house rents about 50% cheaper than London, etc...And if you are a European citizen, there are no restrictions for you to move there!
Ok Ok Ok, there is one disadvantage to this. This law applies to MARRIED couples, which means you HAVE to be officially married. Don't forget, Luxembourg is a very catholic country. No "living in common law" thing there, even if you have 8 kids!!!
Have a nice day
A train hits a bus load of nuns and they all perish. They are all in heaven trying to enter the pearly gates past St.Peter. He asks the first nun Sister Karen have you ever had any contact with a penis?? The nun giggles and replies, Well, once I touched the head of one with the tip of my finger. St Peter says OK, dip the tip of your finger in the holy water and pass through the gate. St Peter asks the next nun the same question Sister Elizabeth have you ever had any contact with a penis.. The nun is a little reluctant but reply's Well I once fondled and stroked one.. St Peter says, OK dip your hand in the holy water and pass through the gate... All of a sudden there is a lot of commotion in the line of nuns. One nun is pushing her way to the front of the line. When she reaches the front of the line St Peter says Sister, Sister what seems to be the rush?? The nun reply's If I'm going to have to gargle that holy water, I want to go before Sister Mary sticks her ass in it!!
