By bad.... excuse me... I meant Soviet Union jokes..
ANyone remember the Soviet Union ???
How did that economic system work for them ???
These are called anekdotes in Russia. There are hundreds of them and they are pretty halarious. It is a way to speak the truth without actually putting yourself on the spot for it.
One that I recall all the time is about an american marrying a russian girl.
So, an american meets a russian girl and he falls in love with her. She is pretty, nice and calm. They get married. A couple years pass. They divorce . The friends can't figure out what happened so they ask. The american guy says - she learned to speak english.
3 dogs are talking
One dog is an American dog, the second dog is Polish, and the third dog is Russian.
The 1st dog says he can't complain all he has to do is keep barking and eventually someone will give him some meat to eat.
The Polish dog looking a little puzzled asks "whats meat ?"
The Russian dog looking even more disturbed asks "What is bark ?"
