This is a normal post
having lived in Germany (provincial Germany, not Berlin) I can confirm that Germans do in fact have a sense of humour.

It is unfortunately deeply unsophisticated and resembles the sense of humour of a horny 1970s mongoloid.

This is a normal post So not unlike that of a typical Peter Kay audience, then?

that is a very good comparison. In Germany, Peter Kay would be thought of as highbrow. And possibly sexy.

This is a normal post I live in a sophisticated area (München)
And I've found it to be very droll, mainly revolving around clever word play and witticisms which is far easier to exploit given german word conjugation. I do think that the older post-war pre-70's generations are a bit lame and tasteless though... und folglich gleich wie England. ;)

This is a normal post STFU. I studied English lit you knob end.
I had to endure far too much of Tennyson and his regurgitated bullshit. He read about the Charge of the light brigade in the Times for fucks sake. Wilfred owen, now there is a war poet I can get into, even if Siegfried Sassoon edited and recomposed his finest works. Dulce et decorum est, eh!
Your sig does make it read better though, dropping the comma makes it make alot more sense.

This is a normal post Wow, sorry, that was quite ranty.
I didn't mean it to come across that way. I just really dislike Alfred (he was never a lord) Tennyson.

This is a normal post I do know what you mean though.
I far, FAR prefer early hippy Tennyson: All the "ah welaway" & "Oh! That one so beautiful should have so dull an ear!" &c.

This is a normal post How many Germans does it take to change a lightbulb?
Just one. They do it quickly and efficiently using a good quality bulb

pfft.a hippy German perhaps. a real German would beat a Slav with a stick until the Slav changed the bulb. And probably after.

This is a normal post A pure blood German would oversee a Slav beating another Slav with a stick until the Slav changed the bulb
while the German gains sexual gratification from the beating.

This is a normal post A German I know told me a couple of jokes, which I think are wonderful.
Joke 1: 23 people walk into a museum, then 24 walk out. Then 1 person walks in, and the museum is empty.

Joke 2: In a desert, there is a sheep sitting on a fence, knitting oil. A policeman approaches him and says "There's no parking here!"

This is a normal post I only know one German joke.
A Bavarian, a Prussian and a Swabian are at the pub, drinking beer. Suddenly, each notices that he has a fly in his beer.

The Bavarian fishes out the fly, and continues drinking. The Prussian sets his beer aside and fetches himself a new, uncontaminated, one. The Swabian fishes the fly out, and makes it spit back what it's swallowed.




I'm assuming that, from a country of 80 million souls, there must be a better joke somewhere.

This is a normal post It probably helps to know the stereotypical idiosyncrasies of Bavarians, Prussian and Swabians
in order for one to understand that that is, generally speaking, what each of those regional communities might do in that scenario if they all followed the traditional stereotype, and then laugh.

Luckily I do!* HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

This is a normal post I wouldn't know. That is from a French film, and those actors are all French.
The main actor is Louis de Funès, and the film is 'Le Grand Restaurant' (and that scene was cut out in the East German version, I've read).

Link: www.imdb.com/title/tt0061728/
(and the information about the cut came from: www.imcdb.org/movie_61728-Le-grand-restaurant.html )
