Where and how do you found such pearls ?;-)) Dec 10, 2003

I couldn't help but laugh , although the second one is not so funny giving the fact that it refers to real tragic recent history.
It's what you call in French "rire jaune" - when you laugh but know as the same time how sad it is.

One more joke Dec 11, 2003

A Czech man going to see an optometrist. The optometrist points at the letters p r c h l n k v d on his board and asks the man if he can read them. “Read them?” exclaims the Czech. “I even know him.”

PS. This is just a joke. No offence intendedicon_smile.gif
