*searches* - ah: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hans_Brinker

"Hans Brinker, or The Silver Skates is a novel by Mary Mapes Dodge, first published in 1865.

A part of the novel became an American legend. In the novel a tale is read out in class: The Hero of Haarlem about a Dutch boy that saved his country by putting his finger in a leaking dike, and staying there all night in spite of the cold."

# Oh we were taught it from an early
age, but it was just a story meant to instill a sense of resonsibility and civic pride or something. Not meant to be taken literally. If it was a reall story then being Dutch it would have been a 12ft man named Jeroen who had his dick in a hole in the wall leak or no leak. ;)
