Everything is Belgian.
I have long harboured a fondness for the odd little lowland country of Belgium. Half Dutch, half-French, and all weird.
Now news comes that the quintisentially English game, cricket, may have been invented by les Belges.
Such an unassuming place: invents everything but never worries about taking any credit. Cricket, the french fry, the FN self loading rifle, brussels sprouts- "fabrique Belgique" indeed.
Hooray for you, Belgium.
