I googled the above internet play on the German language and I came across a rather tasteless version, but one which one cannot think as an English speaker when living in Southern Germany and much more Austria:



I would wager I saw this very sign nearly everyday for some years. And it never struck me as not completely insane. Especially given the absolute lack of Jews in the area.

Chilling.

Sorry for ruining the fun.

Gasse is the German word for alley or lane.

Ah, hence PanMichal's "wrong on so many levels".

Wife: Hey, hon, where's the nearest bank? 
Husband: There's a couple down on Jew Lane!
Wife:  OK, I've told you before, that joke's not funny.
Husband:  What, you gonna divorce me?  Need a lawyer?  I bet you can find one on...Jew Lane!

I think you would be surprised at how often you can still encounter jokes about jews, up here.

I have even had some of them directed at me.  :D

LOL. I could write a book about all the Jew-jokes I've heard in my life, and yes, some were aimed at me too  ;D

Nobody dares make fun of me when I'm present after an incident involving hot soup and someone's neck  ;)

But why were you called the Jew?

It's a funny story, actually. We had a school project and my group was supposed to make a slideshow about the Viking Age. Some friends of my family spent much of their spare time, going to viking markets, so they had a bunch of thing which I thought might be good to add some entertainment to the presentation. The viking clothes, they had given me included a farmer's hat which happened to look like a yarmulke.

These days, I'm called a gypsy. That's what you get for sharing your family history.

But everyone is a Dutchman over here. Except for the women, they're Dutchwomen.

Alright, alright, I get your point. What about... the Orthodox Tulipe?

Had to do a system restore this morning on my computer, thanks to a lovely message accusing me of doing something illegal (they weren't sure what) that wouldn't go away.

I hate those kind of scams/viruses with a burning passion.

That must be the reason why I couldn't find my clothes after eating those funny mushrooms at a party.
That's why I always avoid groups of old men - they will drug you, strip you and sit in awe, until miss Heart Attack shows up. It's called "rushin' roulette".

Shame when that happens. At least I feel flattered that they were impressed with my clock weights to such an extent that they made a commercial about it.

So I typed "paradise" to Google and found this:



Do some people actually think that would be paradise? Why would anyone would like to live there?
