Default hey...can we make fun of each other here?

Here is what I mean....

What happened to Polish jokes??? Is it politically incorrect now to throw a couple of Polish jokes out in in the GP? Or Greek for that matter? Or any other nationality???

Like, what happened to Fat Albert cartoons? Speedy Gonzales?

See where I'm going with this? Nobody can say anything anymore without some bullschlagen excuses made as to their "meannings".

Is is that insulting to say:

How do you separate the men from the boys in Greece?

- with a crowbar.

I'm Greek and I find that funny.

...actually, a simple crowbar won't do...it needs to have a handle a min. of 16 inches long (you need allot of leverage)...

comments welcome.

Just a heads-up, Prohibited #9...

"Discussions of politics, ethnicity, religion, or other divisive issues in any area"

I personally don't mind banter to do with these things, but I know people that are sensitive to it, and things can escalate from light banter to arguments/insults, so it may well be best to stop now.
Just my 2p

Chris

Chris, agreed. I love politically incorrect humor as much as the next guy (actually, a lot more than the next guy!), but in an international and multicultural forum like this, it's inappropriate- which is why there's a rule against it.
