The Geographical Guide To Sin 13 May 2007

Posted by David in Comment, World.

Michael Gove and his mother-in-law have introduced a new discussion game to Britain, as yet unnamed it seems. Apparently you have to match each of the 7 Deadly Sins to a country (I guess you could do it for anywhere really), and its very popular in Italy. So here goes;

Lust – France, need I say more
Anger – Iran, keen to destroy millions
Pride – Australia, where they fly their flag and can win stuff
Sloth – Spain, where everywhere closes at lunchtime
Envy – UK, where “keeping up with the Jones'” is endemic
Gluttony – USA, closely followed by the UK
Greed – Hong Kong, ultimate consumer city

No doubt it will be labelled politically incorrect, so enjoy your discussions while they last.

Intersting that medieval writers associated Lust with Italy, Eating excessively eith the Germans, Drinking excessively with the English, and Pride with the Spanish.
These stereotypes really are that old. See The Merchant of Venice and Chaucer.

What a fun game 🙂 Of course, you could attach that Pride sin to any number of countries. Personally, I’d pick China.
