Traditional Polish dilemma at Christmas time - who and how should kill the live carp?

Policemen in 13 Police station eventually decide to shoot it:

Don`t be a wimp! You`re a police officer!
I can`t! It is looking at me!

The happy smile of the policewoman at 28:52 - priceless!

A bunch of freaks, morons and losers at 13 police station give up their wild stupidities for a while and keep the tradition singing a christmas carol together. Wonderful!

Even half a century after WW2 finished, Poles are still haunted with Nazi German occupation horror nightmares:

Not half a century, but almost 70 years. So tell me, who is responsible that the young Polish generation is still haunted by WW2? School? Parents? Politicians?

No, I didn`t make a mistake. It was exactly 55 years. :)

Those nasty historians who pry and sniff everywhere and then publish what they found? :)? And rock groups who still make songs about war!

So tell me, who is responsible that the young Polish generation is still haunted by WW2?

Hey, I was thinking hard and came to a conclusion: Germans are responsible!!!! If they hadn`t started war during WW2, Poles wouldn`t be haunted today!! It is so simple, now wonder nobody knew the right answer!!!

Especially that most Germans supported Hitler and still cherish the grand memory of Third Reich! See at 13:55 how Hauptman Wassermann from the German police introduces himself to Polish officers:

So, no wonder that when a Polish officer comes drunk to the station and unexpectedly starts singing in German, he receives a rather rough treatment:

BTW, my fav episode, worth seeing whole. :):):):)

"Haunted" is a very strong word, Pawian, that's why I asked. Poles born after 1989 are still "haunted" even though they've never experienced WW2 or the communist era? If that is really true, then who is responsible for messing up their heads? Not the Germans, so it must be old geezers like you... ;)

No, I didn`t make a mistake. It was exactly 55 years.

Care to explain? I don't get it.

the series is quite old - it ran in the middle til late 90's - that's why it was 55 not 70

2000 - 55 = 1945. Simple. :):):)

Yes, you got me now! I start every lesson with reminding my students of German occupation!!! With slides and documentaries!! :):):):):) Then my students become film directors and actors and recreate their nightmares in sitcoms!!

Traditional Polish dilemma at Christmas time - who and how should kill the live carp?

I still remmember the day when my Father, for the first time, let me kill the carp myself. I was 10 back then (have been begging him to let me do it from the time I was about 5), it felt as if I have become half adult. Been telling about it to all my friends during every pause at school....

First time he let me cut the fish's head, it was two years latter - that was all the manly duties about preparing the Supper, then the carp was being given to the care of women (my mother and sister in this case) to remove bowles and fry it.

By the way, what is the English name for that fish's bladder? As kid we were always geting it, to play for some time, to dry it up, and ussualy bringing it to school, to stomp on it during some hated classes.

At that age I cared for all animals. I had a fish tank since I was 7. Our parents killed fish.

It is swim bladder.

At that age I cared for all animals. I had a fish tank since I was 7. Our parents killed fish.Coming out is still rare in Poland because is met with unpleasant reaction from some Poles: Police officers suspect that one of their mates is gay. Can gays work in the police force?

Police officers suspect that one of their mates is gay.

Annoyed by false accusations, the officer admits he is gay.

He says for an interview: Sometimes a male has to be gay. Imagine Russian astronauts spending a year on their mission in space. [...] Simply speaking, men are cooler than women.

The Rotten West infected decent Poland with the custom of organising stag parties,. Yuk!

It isn`t considered a problem when adult kids live with their parents. A tough policeman`s even tougher mother visists her son at the station.

Drinking is an inherent part of Polish culture, just like in other nations. Historical reenactment of drinking.

When a Polish male learns he is going to be a father, he experiences a little shock but when he overcomes it, he is the best father and husband in the world! The craze for flu vaccines has been affectingl Poland for about 15 years now. Get a flu shot, get a flu shot!

There is rivalry and animosities between regular police and municipal police in Poland.

Poles celebrate namedays as often (or even more) as birthdays:

Most Polish males are too sensitive to bear the sight of female giving birth. Poles know basic words in most languages.
