Click for the 'PermaThread™: List of all joke threads'


There are thousands of jokes about countries and/or ethnic groups: "How many Frenchman does it take to defend Paris?", "Why do Germans...", "Canada wants to send military aid..." etc. So it seems to me there ought to be jokes in those countries going the other way "How many Americans does it take..."

Anybody out there know any?

"Canada wants to send military aid...". Ya knooooowwww... we just lost the last surviving veteran of Vimy Ridge. An almost unbelieveable story of the toughness we supplied during WWII and a turning point in that war. Daylia reminded us recently on another thread of the Dieppe raid and of the sacrifice Canada made on D-Day. My father used to tell of the fact that the Canucks waited on the roadside for three days so that the Brits and Yanks could catch up and all enter Rome together. My father-in-law was badly wounded by a potato masher shortly after the battle of Monte Christo (sp ?) in an advance scout party well behind enemy lines. You can't spend an evening with my uncle without him reminding everyone that the majority of front line officers were Canucks in a special placement in command of allied troops from a various nations. Or of how he was reported dead to his mother after being behind enemy lines for over a week, radioing info back and ducking bullets on his motorcycle. I could go on, but I won't, cause I'm just a Canuck from one of the lowly colonies. Hey, I can take a joke, but sometimes.... oh well, I'll have another beer. That's what we Canucks are (more) famous for.

Well there's the old one about the American farmer, holidaying in the U.K. and boasting over a drink in a village pub about how much bigger his farm was than the small local farms were....
"If I got into my truck and set off driving in any direction, it would take me till sundown to reach the boundary of my farm!"

"Aye!" said the wrinkled old farmer sitting by the fire, "I used to have a truck like that!"

Courtesy of This Hour Has 22 Minutes, CBC Television:

On behalf of Canadians everywhere I'd like to offer an apology to the United States of America. We haven't been getting along very well recently and for that, I am truly sorry.

I'm sorry we called George Bush a moron. He is a moron but, it wasn't nice of us to point it out. If it's any consolation, the fact that he's a moron shouldn't reflect poorly on the people of America. After all, it's not like you actually elected him.

I'm sorry about our softwood lumber. Just because we have more trees than you doesn't give us the right to sell you lumber that's cheaper and better than your own.

I'm sorry we beat you in Olympic hockey. In our defence I guess our excuse would be that our team was much, much, much, much better than yours.

I'm sorry we burnt down your white house during the war of 1812. I notice you've rebuilt it! It's Very Nice.

I'm sorry about your beer. I know we had nothing to do with your beer but, we Feel your Pain.

I'm sorry about our waffling on Iraq. I mean, when you're going up against a crazed dictator, you wanna have your friends by your side. I realize it took more than two years before you guys pitched in against Hitler, but that was different. Everyone knew he had weapons.

And finally on behalf of all Canadians, I'm sorry that we're constantly apologizing for things in a passive-aggressive way which is really a thinly veiled criticism. I sincerely hope that you're not upset over this. We've seen what you do to countries you get upset with.

gnu: My grandfather (29th Battalion) was in the mud at Vimy Ridge and Paaschendaele and elsewhere. I hang a picture at home of his platoon, with "x"'s that he drew across the chests of those who died in Vimy Ridge (most of them.)

I personally don't get any twinges of patriotism out of it. What it does do to me all the time is impart a sense of amazement and humility at the toughness of the generations who preceded us, in all the participating countries.

(and, to throw in a bit of editorialization, right now it shames me when I think of smart bombs targeted at third world populations, enlisted or otherwise.)

herc... it does not shame me... it saddens me. In the end, I think we all know that the only justifiable cause for war is to free the poor subjugated by the rich; to free the weak subjugated by the strong. Unfortunately, much of what is imminently before us is grey and we, the peons, can only hope that our leaders have good in their hearts and have ultimate peace on their minds; and that the immediate objectives of today lead to the strategic objectives of tomorrow.... peace and goodwill among men. If I was to think that it is only about a bunch of power hungry oil barons, I'd be beyond sad.

As for patriotic feelings, I admit, nay, proclaim, that I am proud of this country, of what it has done, and for what it stands. I also have feelings and admiration for those brave souls who fought for such freedom regardless of nation... and for those that will. To me, patriotism comes from being able to attach goodwill and good judgement to the actions of a nation, and I think Canada rates that patriotism.

OK two American Jokes, heard from those who were there.

1/. Picture the scene - NATO execises in the Mediteranean Sea in the 1950's

US Navy and Royal Navy in joint manouevers.

US Admiral in command.

Over the Radio "Weeel, Lets try some high speed manouvers, Y'all"

"When I say a word begining with "S" all units will turn to Starboard, and when I say a Word begining with "P" all units will turn to Port"

The manouvers continue.

" Sugar Sugar Sugar" and all units turned to Starboard.

"Peter Peter Peter" and all units turned to Port.

"Phycology Phycology Phycology" (SP) and the RN turned to Port, and the USN turned to Starboard.

(Told to me by an old RN (Ret) Leading Signalman.)

2/. "When the Luftwaffe flew over, the Allies took cover,
When the RAF flew over the Wermacht took cover,
And when the USAAF flew over everybody took cover"

(Told to me by my father - Whose unit orders were, if you can't see RAF markings, open fire)

Here's an Ameri-Can joke for y'all ...

"A Canadian is having his 'petit dejeuner' (coffee, croissants, bread, butter & jam) when an American man, chewing gum, sits down next to him. The Canadian ignores the American who, nevertheless, starts a conversation.

American: "You Canada folk eat the whole bread??"

Canadian (in a bad mood): "Of course."

American: (after blowing a huge bubble) "We don't. In the States, we only eat what's inside. The crusts we collect in a container, recycle it, transform them into croissants and sell them to Canada." The American has a smirk on his face. The Canadian listens in silence.

The American persists: "D'ya eat jelly with the bread??"

Canadian: "Of Course."

American: (cracking his gum between his teeth and chuckling). "We don't. In the States we eat fresh fruit for breakfast, then we put all the peels, seeds, and left overs in containers, recycle them, transform them into jam and sell the jam to Canada."

The Canadian then asks: "Do you have sex in America?"

American: "Why of course we do", the American says with a big smirk.

Canadian: And what do you do with the condoms once you've used them?"

American: "We throw them away, of course."

Canadian: "We don't. In Canada, we put them in a container, recycle them, melt them down into chewing gum and sell them to America."


But this one's been my favorite of late ... he he!

According to the Bible, it rained for forty days and forty nights, and Noah was begining to worry about the stability of the Ark. Although he had very little formal education, he understood that all the large animal manure piling up was creating an unstable ship. To correct the problem he issued shovels to "all hands" including all the monkeys and apes, who shovelled over the side all the animal shit; and there it lay till Christopher Columbus discovered it.

The federal government is trying to decide whether The FBI, the CIA, or the Los Angeles Police Department is the most effective at
apprehending criminals. The issue is to be decided with a test - a rabbit is put in a forest and each organization has to find it.

    The CIA goes in. They place animal informants throughout the forest. They question all plant and mineral witnesses. After three months of
extensive investigation, they conclude that rabbits do not exist.

    The FBI goes in. After two weeks with no leads, they burn the forest, killing everything in it, including the rabbit, and they make no apologies.
The rabbit had it coming.

    The LAPD goes in. They come out two hours later with a badly beaten bear. The bear is yelling: "Okay! Okay! I'm a rabbit! I'm a rabbit!

When NASA was preparing for the Apollo project, some of the training of the astronauts took place on a Navajo Indian reservation. One day, a
Navajo elder and his son were herding sheep and came across the space crew. The old man, who spoke only Navajo, asked a question that his son
translated. "What are these guys in the big suits doing?"

A member of the crew said they were practicing for their trip to the moon. The old man got all excited and asked if he could send a message to the moon with the astronauts.

Recognizing a promotional opportunity, the NASA folks found a tape recorder. After the old man recorded his message, they asked his son to
translate it. He refused. The NASA PR people brought the tape to the reservation, where the rest of the tribe listened and laughed, but they refused to translate the elder's message to the moon.

Finally, the NASA crew called in an official government translator. His translation of the old man's message was "Watch out for these guys;
they have come to steal your land."

Whew! For awhile there I thought the thread was totally lost! (I might poke fun at the Canadian government, even the culture, but no one should ever doubt their courage under fire. "Sergeant MacKenzie" is one of the most moving songs ever written!)

Back in the early 1900s, during the heyday of Teddy Roosevelt, a yank was visiting London and decided to post a letter home. He barged into the post office, stepped up to the counter, and in a loud, blustery voice said "How much to send a letter to God's country - the greatest nation on earth - the good ol' U.S. of A?" Without batting an eye the clerk calmly responded "Tuppence. Same as the other the colonies."

Perhaps not a joke, but, during the Prince Edward Island potatoe crisis a couple of years ago, (the PVYN (PVN ?) virus was found in one corner of one farmer's field in PEI and the Yanks just refused to let ANY potatoes across the border from the Maritimes) President Bush was wined and dined by our big guy, Jean. For nearly four days, Garge was served Patates d'Isle du Prince Edouard (close enough) at every meal. At the end of the trip, Jean asked him about the quality of the spuds. After he responded most favourably, Jean had a "talk" with him and the outright ban at the border was lifted.

Canadians: Please divert your course 15 degrees the South to avoid a collision.

Americans: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees the North to avoid a collision.

Canadians: Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.

Americans: This is the Captain of a US Navy ship. I say again, divert YOUR course.

Canadians: No. I say again, you divert YOUR course.

Americans: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS LINCOLN, THE SECOND LARGEST SHIP IN THE UNITED STATES' ATLANTIC FLEET. WE ARE ACCOMPANIED BY THREE DESTROYERS, THREE CRUISERS AND NUMEROUS SUPPORT VESSELS. I DEMAND THAT YOU CHANGE YOUR COURSE 15 DEGREES NORTH, I SAY AGAIN, THAT'S ONE FIVE DEGREES NORTH, OR COUNTER-MEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP.

SCENE: A traffic jam outside Paris, the usual bored drivers when along the line of traffic a group of men are seen knocking on the window of each car and chatting to the driver.

CALLER: Have you heard the news? Al Quaida have managed to kidnap George W, they're threatening that unless the get a billion dollers US and an apology from the American government, they're going to doude him in petrol and set him alight, so my colleagues and I are going from car to car to collect what we can.
DRIVER: So what's everyone else giving?
CALLER: Oh, on average, five litres.

All right, so I shouldn't listen to jokes in the pub (and yes it is funnier after a few pints).

These are great! I especially like the Your Call from the lovely Canadians. Sounds just like an American, somehow, to demand the right of passage.
