"Hey, careful. I'm Polish!" Specter said he responded, "That's OK -- I'll tell it more slowly," according to the NY Post.
I wonder what his reaction would be if someone said a Jewish joke back at him.
Probably laughter, I hate to use a stereotype,but lets face it..." Jewish humour" is a byeword for sharp,witty often waspish one liners,on the other hand,"Polish humour" is,well, Ive seen it,it can be very funny,but its not exactly ,well, world renowned.
Im part Paddy, tell me a "dumb polack" joke and Ive heard it as "irish" a thousand times.....Im guessing you dont have the equivelent of;
"An Englishman Irishman and Scotsman walked into a bar......" jokes in the states then?
The problem with German jokes about Poles is that they use to show some guy, who smell of cow ****, his kids are ugly and dirty etc. and that's not funny, that's simply pathetic.
yep,not funny,agreed,but surely not THAT offensive...daft,and a bit of a resigned head shake moment for sure,but hey, being a drunken terrorist who will sing at the drop of a hat and never spend money because I am too much of a homosexual snob with bad teeth and an addiction to drinking tea and supressing the natives gives me a thicker skin?

Remember at school there were some fat kids who were called names and were miserable, and there were some fat kids who were cool? The difference was, that the cool fat kids had enough self distance to say " You call me fat? Whatever. I call myself fat too."
Yep,but I bet it still hurt,they just grew better at hiding it and got on with their lives.
