Dutch Embassy Retaliates Against D.C.
So, why did the Dutch Embassy release this infographic? Well, the mayor of DC's office released leaflets saying that life "wouldn't become like Amsterdam," which seems like a bit of a snipe at life in Amsterdam. It's clear the Dutch took some offense to what was said about Amsterdam so they decided to respond in a light-hearted manner.
And so, this infographic was born. Rather than focus on getting angry, they made this infographic which compares the standard of living in Amsterdam with that in DC. And it seems like, based on their stats, Amsterdam wins!

Classy act, Dutch embassy. I approve whole-heartedly; it wasn't exactly "cool" of DC to speak down to Amsterdam like that.
@amog32 I have to say it was a pretty awesome way to del with the stupid leaflet
@drwhat And to not "overreact" which I feel like America might do in the opposite situation, lol
