the origin of Groningen

After the days in which God has created the world and the animals and plants and even men, there was a little blanc spot left on the norhtern hemisphere. And God decided to create some grasslands, cows, a little wind and clay to fill up this space. But he wanted more, someone to look after it. And God created the "Groninger". And with tears of joy he looked to this creation. And the Groninger said: "God, get of my country."

This story is told to characterize the Groninger. So beware.
