A Doormat Which Tells the Story
So, what's left now, is friendly but blunt humor.....like this doormat which says: Mainz is better than Wiesbaden.
A handful of Mainzers will have these, for guests or relatives who come across the river to visit them. It's playful humor, but they needle each other a bit over this.
One city is a university and Catholic Church crowd type situation.....beer-drinkers, with working class people mostly as the occupants, and they tend to have 'fun'. The other is a business-orientated town, with upscale shops, snobs, mostly protestant churches, Apfel-wine consumption, culture, and they have style and 'grace' (well.....they claim this).
