World citizen

Labmate: I remember when the taxis were on strike in this country because a taxi driver got killed... can't remember which country it was... it was a while ago.

Dr Mosi: hmmm

Labmate: I should remember... I think it was Estonia... all the taxis shutdown because of the murder... yes that's right, Estonia.

Dr. Mosi: I guess Estonia's a small country... maybe that's why you don't remember.

Labmate: I'm from Estonia

Dr. Mosi: Hahahahahaha (uncontrollable laughter)

Holier than thou

The leader of country A wants to liberate the people of country B by sending in his militarily superior army. So he sends in the army, there's not much resistance and country B falls... or so it seems.

50 years later, the leader of country C wants to liberate country D by sending in his militarily superior army. So he sends in the army, there's not much resistance and country D falls... or so it seems.

A few years later, leader C wants to boycott the opening ceremonies of the Olympics held in country A as country A is suppressing the rights of the people of country B.

...errr... sure... whatever...
