Greek Sense of Humour on the FYROM Land Claim :

An ingenious example of speech and politics occurred recently in the United Nations Assembly and made the world community smile.

A representative from Greece began:

"Before beginning my talk I want to tell you something about Great Alexander.
When he successfully tamed Bucephalus, he crossed Axios river and when he saw the water, he thought, 'What a good opportunity to have a bath!'

He removed his clothes, put them aside on the rock and entered the water.

When he got out and wanted to dress, his clothes had vanished. A Slav of the Macedonia had stolen them."

The FYROM representative jumped up furiously and shouted,

"What are you talking about? The Slavs weren't there then."

The Greek representative smiled and said -"And now that we have made that clear, I will begin my speech"


  1. Can u please give us the source of this ?? I mean was it published in any newspapers or any relevant media?

  2. Yes I'm very interested in the verification of this as well. So can you please give us any source about this "fact"? personally I didn't find something relevant but maybe it's a well kept secret :)

  3. there is no such thing like FYROM. they should be called SKOPIA or SLAVS or anything else. let's change all countries's names (ironic). show respect to our history and culture. greece (hellas) brought to europe the lights of knowledge. respect us so we can respect you as well. thank you
