Forks for the French or Enigma for the British. Any other trendsetter from Poland?

Polish nobility already in the 15th century wore the hairstyle that Kim from North Korea wears today.✂️

hairstyle that Kim from North Korea

I'd keep quiet about that one...

nobility

Nobility or szlachta?

I always think that the early portraits of magnaty resemble r*ssian Boyars.

"Prince Polo" is for decades a trendsetter in Iceland. Every Icelander knows it.

The new Panther shows some similarity to Polish tank PL-01 Concept from 2013. Trendsetter?

Disco polo?

Sorry, but I absolutely hate it.
It's even worse than British disco music of the seventies!
And that is going some LOL!!!!!!

Anyone who professes to be a fan of Disco Polo should be immediately taken out the back and shot.

Easy to dance to and very popular still in Poland.

That is true.
But it is still absolute crap!

99% of popular music is crap: but after a few vodkas the ugliest woman in the room becomes shag gable.

Discopolo is a phenomenon of pop culture. That matters.

Discopolo is discopolo. I've noticed a few on here who like it. That is an incorrect opinion. It is vile and should be wiped from earth.

But, you're the OP, Alien. You're above a lowly peasant like me, what you say counts more.

Well, at least you are the only one who feels respect for the Alien.🥶

like

Like a strong word.

It's kitsch, it's fun, it's easy to dance to, goes we all with vodka and for a lot of people in Poland, it brings back happy memories.

The sheer volume of disco polo that's produced each year (and the tinny sales of most of it) suggest that it's a genuine grass roots thing. There are several TV stations in Poland that play nothing else.

@Alien
I do, it's deserved.
@jon357
As someone with taste, I find it personally offensive. It isn't really easy to dance to, it's hard to keep track of to count because it gives headache.

It's four to the floor dance music. You don't need to count. Just stamp your feet, wiggle your pendulous bosom and try not to throw up the bigos and vodka.

As someone with taste

We all have taste however few are personally offended by genres of music we dislike.

Anyway, disco polo is great fun.

Chopin Family Reserve Vodka is "only" a potato vodka but despite that is very exclusive and expensive.

From Soul of Poland to a mere potato vodka?
Man, how the mighty have fallen LOL

Those 'fancy bottle' vodkas are overrated. It doesn't actually taste of anything and Wyborowa is as good as any.

I used to like Siwucha but haven't seen it for a while.

Yes, I've even seen the former in the States, about two years or so ago, when we were shopping in Greenpoint:-)

We used to get it in the UK where it was highly regarded. The distributors should understand that it's still a respected brand there and a good alternative to R*sski Standart or Stolichnaya now r*SSia's star has fallen.

People in PL think it's a little odd to bring Wyborowa to a house since it's seen as old fashioned and not as heavily marketed now as Sobieski etc however the label looks nice and it's a quality product.

With Chopin or Belweder, you're paying for the bottle, the marketing and the opportunity to show your guests that you paid more.

You're paying tor the name, you mean.

That and its brand image. It isn't significantly different from any mainstream vodka. Just diluted spirytus.

Of course.
