A post on Reddit asking users to share an extremely brief version of their country’s history last week quickly got over 18,000 comments, and Malta made a hilarious appearance.

Maltese students get years worth of history lessons, and most of them barely scratch the surface. So you can imagine how difficult it gets to summarise such a long history in a couple of words.
Here are some of the funniest replies from European countries, including of course our very own Malta.
