The Belgians -- that little European country that's the butt of every British joke -- has been without government for a whopping 249 days -- that's longer than it took Iraq after Saddam's fall.
Why? Apparently because the Dutch and French speaking parts of the country just can't accept their differences and get along enough to form a government. Here is how they're planning to celebrate the madness in style:
In Dutch-speaking Ghent, organizers hope 249 people will strip naked to mark the days of the crisis as part of a party expected to draw thousands. There will be free fries, Belgium's beloved national dish, in Leuven and lots of Belgian beer in the French-speaking student town of Louvain-la-Neuve.
That's how I like my Belgians: naked, greasy and drunk.
