Hieronymus the Anonymous from Deutschland submits these two German jokes as the first entrants into the competition: (See yesterday’s posts about German humor)
Some day before WW I in Southern Bavaria, in a train cabin sat a beautiful young lady, her mother, a Prussian tourist and a local Bavarian. In a tunnel, you hear a smacker, and a tough slap. In the daylight after the tunnel, you see the Prussian tourist rubbing his hot red cheek.
The mother thinks: This impertinent Prussian tried to kiss my daughter – what a brave and decent girl is my beauty, she gave him the proper response!
The daughter thinks: This impertinent Prussian tried to kiss me and caught my mother – well, she’s a true battle axe, he deserves it.
The Prussian tourist thinks: This damn Bavarian kissed the girl, and I got the slap!
The local Bavarian thinks: Next tunnel, I make again a smack and slap the Prussian in the face!
Or another one on gender – most people do not find it funny, but I like it, in particular, since it really happened – a relative witnessed it:
On a crossing in Nuremberg, there was a car accident in the middle of the crossing, and the tramway could not pass. Passengers left the tramway in the middle of the street, and one of them, a very fat old madam (in Nürnberg dialect, a “Schraamdambfer”, screw steamer), could not make the high last step down to the street level, and fell. Her large handbag smashed on the street, burst open and scattered its content on the ground. Other passengers helper her to stand up, and collected her stuff. One man handed a denture to her and said, oh my God, you’ve lost your denture!
She answered: On no, that’s not mine, that’s my husband’s one. I always take it with me when I leave home otherwise he is eating up the entire fridge!
President Ahmadinejad loved our jokes and sent this picture to encourage our German readers to send us jokes in English or German.
