what about USA?What reputation Poles have in there?
well, I have heard numbers of Polish jokes, but I dont pay attention anymore
or really havent heard one in a long time, yes some are funny, it does depend on
who's telling it and how they come across.
if its all in good fun, say in a conversation, like my uncle, who was polish, took no
offense to polish jokes and told them to my dad who was also polish, both would
laugh it off as if it was no big deal, but if its a stranger, someone whos trying to
be the life of a party and constantly telling same jokes over all night, yes, then
irritating comes to mind. if it keeps up, its time to show him the door and let it hit
him on the backside while he leaves. or if it is meant to make another feel bad, like
constantly pointing at the friend who is polish and calling him names and or her
and making embarassing comments jokingly or insulting jokingly, yes that is also
reason to get upset. maybe the word I am looking for is the tone of the joke?
every nationality has jokes about their own or someone else, so it isnt just about
polish, no, it isnt right for anyone to get carried away and keep making jokes,
but carry yourself high, and dont let them bother you, you know your not stupid
polish know they are not stupid, look at all they have done! so why would anyone
even believe this? people do things like that to make themselfs feel bigger, but
its these kinds of people who stand out in the wrong way and make themselfs
look really stupid. Trust me, rather then get angry, just have pity for them cause
later in life, they find themselfs really lonely and not a crowd attraction anymore.:)
