About us

Stuff Dutch People Like is a study of all things orange. It investigates and highlights the idiosyncrasies of the Dutch culture and their uncanny ability to talk on a mobile phone, while carrying 2.5 children, 6 bags of groceries, a television set, and a mattress balanced on a gear-less bicycle.

Stuff Dutch People Like exemplifies, questions, celebrates and pokes fun at a nation of orange-loving, guttural-sounding, element-battling, culturally-bemused folk. All in the name of fun.

How, you ask, am I qualified to make such statements?

Simple. If you were to visit a zoo everyday for a year and observe a cage full of monkeys, chances are, you would learn a lot about monkeys. Now try living in that monkey cage, with those monkeys for nearly seven years; you’ll get to know the monkeys pretty darn well. You start talking monkey-language, eating monkey-food, working monkey-jobs, and making monkey-jokes. You get the idea 😉
