The whole Polish joke thing.

20 Apr 2007 /  #1
I've discovered a site called Polishjokes. Now the blurb beneath is what caught my eye, hilariously offensive.

Image if the site was called Pakijokes. or ***********. Now people are already feeling uncomfortable with these words so why is Polishjokes, somehow acceptable.
Not that I'm a kill joy, but well anyway have a read.

Polish Jokes have been around for a very long time. Some people find them offensive, some find them funny, some don't. The thing is, most of these jokes can be applied to practically any race, color, creed, or individual.

Instead of asking: "How many Poles does it take to screw in a light bulb?", you could ask "How many idiots does it take to screw in a light bulb? :( :) :)

The thing is, these Jokes have been with us so long that we no longer associate the words Polish, Pole, Polak, Pollock, with real people, but only the individuals described in the jokes themselves. We might as well leave the name blank and ask you, the user, to insert a name of your own choosing.

Here is a joke that I like:

What does a Polish bride get on her wedding night that is long and hard?

A new last name!

[Moved from]: (video joke) "What we have learned from the history", Poland-German

What do you think about it ppl.

the joke by the Chaser - (comedians from oz) is one thing , but the commentary afterwards it was far more shocking and not that funny to me !

Hmm, the joke is funny. The commentary is in the patriotic style of Great Poland. Some guy visibly flew off the handle.

Do you want a book of jokes from a Polish publisher ?

Or, do you want a book of jokes about Polish people ?

careful how you answer.

I want a joke book written in Polish. So it would naturally be a Polish publisher.

Thank you
