Huffington Post on Polak Jokes

A polish guy wins a brand new sports car in a contest. He drives around all the time waving at the rednecks. One day the rednecks stop him, they draw a circle in the dirt and say “If you step out of that circle, we will kick your ass.” They pick up hammers and start busting up his new car. They look back and he is smiling. They hit the car some more, and he is laughing. They walk over to him and ask “Why are you laughing? We just busted up your car.” He says “I know, but I stepped out of the circle 9 times.”

Michal Karski alerted me to Huffington Post article on Polak jokes, here.

  1. This is, I believe, one in a series of pieces in which the author promotes Poland as a tourist destination, but the question has to be, would she have prefaced a piece about visiting the Emerald Isle with a series of "Dumb Paddy" jokes?

    1. Michal Karski she focused on Polak Jokes in her blog promoting Poland as a tourist destination because the Brute Polak stereotype is the prominent thing that springs to mind when people think about Poland. Poles and Polonia should do something about this, but they don't.
