Don't know how much legs this has, but let's start:

If you travel to Antwerp, and then go on to Brussels, have you visited Belgia?

If you start with Wrigley's Spearmint, and switch to Dentine, are you chewing ga?

Doesn't have to be.

(If it's male do we call it an "amputé" ?)

If you were Julius Ceasar you'd say Belgi.

What if you went from Amsterdam to Rotterdam? Would it be Hollandaise?

Well, shucks, it sounded right. If you danced in the old Belgian Congo and in the Democratic Republic of Congo would you have Conga?

You'd have to dance several dances for it to be conga. If you only do one it's a congum.

Are you trying to confuse me with quantum physics? Confused One dance in the old colony then another in the independent country = two dances, no? Oy, my head hurts!

Let's not forget the single highway paved in asphalt is the Congoleum.

If I drink several martinis, do I have a high gini coefficient?

If you were drinking while in a temporary bed, you could have a a cot-n-gin.

Why does "pants" have an "s," but brassiere doesn't? And if I remember, "brassiere" comes from the French word for arm. Given their function and their contents, I'd think they should be called "mainieres' but that's from my biased male perspective.
