    Here's a joke Slovenes tell when they want to illustrate the attitude toward neighbors in their country.

    Bog vprasa slovenca, "Kaj bi rad? Dam ti kar hoces, s tem, da bo tvoj sosed dobil dvakrat toliko." Slovenec malo pomisli pa rece, "Bogec, iztakni mi oko."

    God asks a Slovene, "What would you like? I'll give you whatever you want, only know that your neighbor is going to get twice as much of the same thing." The Slovene thinks a bit, then says, "Okay, Lord, pluck out one of my eyes."
