I've always wanted my own serfs...

How about we all pool our money, rent out the country, and use Liechtenstein to stage a FARK invasion of France?

We should just invade it. We have the numbers for an invasion and occupation.

I agree with the French Invasion Plan. Lets rent the place, oust the monarchy and take their oil. There is oil in the Alps, isn't there?

There are probably MORE Farkers than there are Liechtensteiners.

What? Paying to enter a country that we shouldn't be in in the first place? I'm reporting this to the House Un-American Activities Committee.

I imagine that the residents of Liechtenstein are just thrilled about the possibility of being bought.

Jex: Wow...We did too,back in '78. Great fun. I was Tully Bascomb.

Farkenstein outnumbers Lichtenstein 2-1
 
2003-02-09 03:39:27 PM  
So... who's up for having our own country? Think of Farkistan, except in the Alps, and taking over France.

I like this idea...
 
2003-02-09 03:41:20 PM  
So how much does it cost??? I figure it would be worth a couple thousand to institute mandatory public orgies for a couple of days..

Lichtenstein is Germanys biatch...
 
2003-02-09 04:10:00 PM  
Do you think they'd rent Liechtenstein out for a couple weeks so I could use it to officially declare war on Ireland?
 
2003-02-09 04:13:48 PM  
Farktenstein has a certain ring to it

i drove the long way across Liechtenstein once and it only took like half an hour.
 
2003-02-09 04:26:13 PM  
I'm gonna rent it for like, an hour and spend all of it's cash and put some missles Russia's way... muhahahahahaha.
 
2003-02-09 04:33:49 PM  
I'm all for renting the country and using it as a base to take over france. But do we really want control of france?

Forsythe P. Jones & Jex: count me as another person who did that play back in HS. Was alot of fun.

Lichtenstein is Switzerland's biatch, thank you very much. And she's a sweet one... Oooooooh yeah....

Anyone who wants to crash here before going to the Lichtenstein party is welcome. BYOBnB. (bring your own boobies ... and beer).
 
2003-02-09 04:45:47 PM  
I say use it to invade france, or atleast launch nukes at them. I can pony up a few bucks if it will help.
 
2003-02-09 04:51:01 PM  
My buddy and I were traveling in Europe. We got off the train in Austria, walked across Liechtenstein, and got back on the train in Switzerland.

Geddit? We walked across the entire country? Isn't that so cool?

OK, maybe not...

Isn't this the country that Terry Southern set Blue Movie in?

Just to clear up a bit of confusion, because Liechtenstein doesn't border France, gentlemen. Only Austria and Switzerland. But if you wanna invade France, I suspect nobody's gonna bother to stop you.

guy1: "Who are those nutjobs?"
guy2: "Farkers, off to invade France."
guy1: "Well, had to happen someday. Been years since France had a chance to surrender. They're due."

Good idea, but it's a little too close to Latveria. Dr.Doom would NOT make a good neighbor.
 
2003-02-09 05:58:36 PM  

Oh, Antialias, you beat me to the punch on that one! LOL

If I were to take over Liechtenstein, the inhabitants would be making horror movies about my reign 700 years from now! Or horror holograms, or whatever they'll have...

Just because it doesn't border France doesn't mean we can't stage our attack from it. It's a heckuva lot closer than attacking from, say, New Jersey.

We could stay the night in Liechtenstein, drive on over to France and conquer it by noon, then be back at the Liechtenstein hotel in time for dinner.

Of course Liechtenstein is recognized by the U.N. with a population that wouldn't add up to a small town in the U.S., but Taiwan isn't recognized because everyone's a chickensh!t when it comes to China.

I agree, but staging a war from New Jersey may be a better idea. Thing of all the recruits (the entire population in fact) who are just looking for a reason to get the hell out of that shiat-hole.

/Not all of NJ is a shiat-hole, just the northern half

Maybe Taiwan can buy Liechtenstein so they can get some recongition
 
2003-02-09 07:50:49 PM  
I travelled in Liechtenstein once, back in '90. Yup, it's the size of a postage stamp alright and the food's expensive but Damn! Beautiful country around there.
 
2003-02-09 10:03:18 PM  
Hey, I've been to Liechtenstein! Really pretty, and they have kiss-ass postage stamps.
 
2003-02-09 10:53:19 PM  
Hey, if I rent an entire country, I certainly want the soverign to be the "official greeter." Open car doors, hold umbrellas, and make sure the buffet has enough cocktail weenies.
 
2003-02-10 01:24:06 AM  
Wow, the things people do to remain independent. Those Cagliostro Liechenstieners sure are wacky.

Always wanted to buy a country, suppose renting is the second best. How long before some major corporation starts leasing it on a monthly basis?

Microsoftenstein, anyone?
 
2003-02-10 02:33:18 AM  
liechtenstein may not border france, but all that's between the two is "the neutral planet" aka switzerland. their stance when someone asks about farkastanians driving across to invade france: "eeeh, whatever"
