My name is Maret. Im from Estonia. I like travelling and languages. I like that there are different cultures and countries.
Neighbor countries are making jokes about estonians and estonians about the neighbors and about themselves. One of my favorite jokes from estonians about estonians is:
A German, an American and an Estonian are watching an elephant.
The German: “Wow, what a strong animal, I wonder how much it could work”
The American: “What a beautiful animal, I wonder how much it costs”
The Estonian: “I wonder what it thinks of me”
The joke has been complemented also with your help. Therefore, it you have a good idea following the same pattern what do you think that what a person from your country might think watching an elephant, write to me. I will add it to this joke
There have also been added the following expressions:
The Australien: “What is this? How much have I been drinking?”
or “What an animal! Why don’t we have one?”
The Canadian: “I’m sorry!”
The Columbiano: „I am bigger then it!“
The Dutch: “Where should I put it”
The Dutch to me: “The proverbial elephant in the living room, you put it out here!”
The Finn: “Just have a quick 100k and continue the day as normal”
Or “What as happened in the world that this thing appears on our roads?”
Or to me :“we are actually so similar to Estonians”,
The German: “It produces too much waste! It is not carbon neutral!”
Or : “How much does the insurance cost?”
The Hong Konger steps away and lets the elephant cross the road.
Person from Ivory Coast: “something good will happen soon!”
The Tibetian starts to admire it.
The Italian: “Who knows how much pasta it eats?!?!?!
Proverb from Indonesia:”Elephant in front of your eyes can’t be seen but the speck across the sea are clearly visible”
The Japanese: “What a beautiful animal!!! We have to give official court rank to show the emperor! “ ...in fact 1728 it need to have a court rank to see the emperer or shown. In 1728 the elephant was given rank xu-si (=Samurai who have own castle) and met the emperor
The Pole: “I wonder what additional fee for elephants provides the EU”
The Russian: “Awfully big animal, I’ll put it in a pot, invite some friends over, we’ll have vodka and have a big party”
Or: “Interesting how much it can drink?”
Or: "OH, a nice pet for my son! Everyone will die of envy!"
The Saudi Arabian: “How much the breeding costs?”
The Bascue (Spain): “Are you sure it’s an elephant?”
The Swede: “How can I help you?”
The Swiss: “Are all his rights are guaranteed?”
Or write a joke about your or your neighbor’s nationality.
In the front side, I’d be truly happy to see an image of a woman or dancing persons. In July birthday cards and always postcrossing meetup cards.
I want to thank you in advance for the text and the card, whatever it turns out to be you decide to send me.
