15 Funniest Jokes About Poland

5 min read    24 comments

For reasons that will become apparant to you once you've read the jokes below, let's begin with a disclaimer. These are jokes about Poland and Polish people. After hours of searching... these are the funniest we could find. Not a whole lot of solid, solid gold. Maybe more like bronze or copper. Let's just say these were the 15 passibly least offensive while still being passibly maybe funny jokes.



Most Polish jokes we came across were generic stereotypes about Polish people stealing, drinking, being racist, being lazy and being corrupt, with a splash of Poland vs. Russia & Germany. Pretty standard bad joke territory. The jokes, with their questionable hilarity, do not represent our actual opinions. They are to be taken with a grain of salt and with an idea towards bringing people together over a mate's giggle with the overriding knowledge that it's all silly banter between friends, rather than an generalised attack upon an entire nation. So, cool your boots, reader, and let us know below in the comments which jokes you found funny/not funny. Which part triggered social revelations in your value system. Or, if you have some better jokes about Poland then, my god, please do contribute as we would love to increase the quality of this limp list.

A Pole caught a magic goldfish. "Oh god man, let me free and I will fullfill your 3 wishes". OK, go. Back in the water, the goldfish says: "What is your first wish?". "Well, I want all oceans and seas to be vodka, not water". "No probs, god man! Done! What is your second wish?". Here the Pole started to calculate; oceans are huge, but one day all this vodka will finish... So he says: "I want all rivers flowing to the seas to be vodka, not water". "Done!" says the fish. Your third wish, please? Now the Pole got really embarrassed. He scratches his head, tries to think of something, but nothing comes to his mind. Finally, he says: "OK, you know, just give a bottle of vodka and we are done"

Goldfish grants the Pole 2 wishes. First wish is a bottle of vodka that never empties. No matter how much is poured from it, it’s always full after pouring. And what is your second wish says the goldfish ? I’ll have another one of them vodka bottles.

Hi Linda, Poles are (in general) whites, so I am not sure why you consider any of the above "racial", unless you mean this Nigerian and Filipino stuff
