The mystery of Polish hand-kissing finally explained

There was an animated debate here on Polandian about hand-kissing and Polish chivalry. Irish television finally explains it all… simply and elegantly.

RTE, the Irish broadcaster, brought the soap opera ‘Pierwsza Miłość’ to Irish viewers to enlighten them about various aspects of Polish culture. One has to admit they did a magnificent job with the English dubbing…

OK, so they actually parodied the original Polish show :) it’s hilarious. They called it ‘Soupy Norman’. You Tube it. I recommend episode 6. The Irish version tells the story of a dysfunctional Cork family in Dublin.
