- Actually, the name spells: Kaczynski. The Germans have the habit of purposely misspelling Polish names (out of the racist conviction: 'Polish is not a real human language'). Should we misspell German names for fun? If we do it consistently, folks will start laughing at them eventually too.
NOT purposely! Promise!
It's just....polish is hard for Germans...we desperatedly miss the vowels...:)
- That's name-calling, isn't it? Coming from a German hack and repeated with gusto by a German feller (i.e. Butty).
Should we similarly depict the facial features of German politicians? E.g. Frau Mekerel (instead of Merkel) as piggy-faced?
What's wrong with elfin-faced? :)
I wonder how would the Germans take it? So far, they have been enraged by the cover of the Polish weekly Wprost, showing a humorous pic of Frau Merkel with, actually, the Kaczynskis. (Which seems to corroborate the stereotype that the Germans are bereft of any sense of humour. Also compared to us, Poles.
Right now YOU are reacting quite humourless and always accusing the Germans of the worst possible intentions (look at your posts)!WHY DOES IT ALWAYS NEED TO BE AN INTENTIONAL AFFRONT WITH UNDERLYING RACISM????
After all, nobody that I know of in Poland objected to the humorous representation of the Kaczynskis on the aforementioned cover.) Of course, when some time ago a German periodical had on its cover President Kaczynski with a potato instead of head and some Poles objected to it, the German politicians retorted with the air of intellectual superiority that Poles should know what 'satire' is.
Yes...another sign of polish humour....demanding from the government in Berlin to punish the authors and forbid this pic! How funny! :)
I hope this give to certain folks scribbling in this thread some food for thought as to whether the Germans are really as amicable towards and safe to us as these folks have been implying.
By the way, Frasu Merkel herself has showed class; she suggested to a German hack, who asked her about the Wprost caricature, that the Polish hacks have the right to freedom of expression.
Exactly what Poland didn't do!
PS: I remember at least TWO events (Media markt ad, Harald Schmidt Late Night Show)
where Poles reacted VERY miffed about jokes and DEMANDED to cut it...what also happened....you are sooooo understanding and humorfull!
Can you show me some tries of the german gov where it demanded from the Poles to cut those anti-german pics or jokes or whatever?
Who has more humour, huh?
