Austria-Switzerland today 2 by Cadaska Austria-Switzerland today 2 by Cadaska
For part one: [link]


1) Obviously based on the winter olympics in Vancouver. I couldn't find any photos of the Austrian outfits so I gave him this sweater-jacket-thing (whatever it is).
for more information: [link]

"When Swiss alpine skier Didier Defago won the men’s downhill Monday, Michael Leuenberger was happy.
When no Austrian joined Defago on the podium, Leuenberger was ecstatic.

“It matters,” said Leuenberger, a Swiss fan from Bern wearing the signature Swiss cross on every available piece of clothing.

For more than two decades the rivalry between the two Alpine nations at the heart of alpine skiing has been a colossal mismatch. Since 1988, Austria has won 28 Olympic alpine skiing medals, including nine golds. In that same time, Switzerland has won five medals, none gold.

But this year has witnessed the renaissance of men’s Swiss alpine skiing, and Monday’s downhill confirmed it.

For Austria, Switzerland’s success “sticks in their craw like you wouldn’t believe,” says Steven Threndyle, a journalist who has covered the World Cup circuit for several Canadian publications.

On one hand, Austrians are outraged by the success of any nation but their own. And for good reason. No nation in the Winter Olympics has dominated a single sport as thoroughly as Austria has dominated alpine skiing. Since 1936, its men and women have won 30 Olympic alpine gold medals, almost one-quarter of all the golds awarded in the sport.

But the Austrian-Swiss rivalry holds a special place.

First, it is Switzerland than has provided Austria with its greatest competition, historically. The Swiss are No. 2 on the all-time Olympic gold medal table, with 16.

Moreover, as the two European nations that sit astride the Alps, they are the stewards of the deepest traditions of alpine skiing."






About the Austria jokes (Österreicherwitze): It's okay Austria, Switzerland is just trying to get your attention. Maye he'll shut up if you kiss him. Probably not though since he's very proud of them.
During the European football championship they held together in 2008 there even was a (tiny) protest movement called 'Stop the Austria jokes!' :XD:



The last one is totally inspired by this:

EDIT: Okay, there are 38000 Austrians in Switzerland now.
