political parties in Finland

from Wikipedia wiki about Donald Duck's nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie. Some fans and researchers believe you can differentiate the ducklings by the colors of their baseball caps.


In Finland, the three main political parties, namely the National Coalition Party, the Centre Party and the Social Democratic Party, are sometimes sarcastically referred as Huey, Dewey, and Louie, for there are allegedly no differences in their political agendas. The joke is based on the fact that the parties use the same symbolic colours (blue = NCP, green = Centre, red = Social Democrats) as the three ducks' caps.

In Poland the two main contenders for POWER are a sleazebag called Donald Tusk and an unspeakable bag even much more full of sleaze called KaczyƄski (as "of Duck"). The poor voters are faced with a tough choice, as the press points out before elections: Donald or Duck?
