Do people still tell jokes about polacks?

Growing up, this was standard procedure. I'm not sure anyone actually understood the reasons, but we all understood that making fun of polacks was hilarious.

I'm now realizing that we were simply stupid kids.

The world has not run out of stupid kids, but I realize it's been many years since I've heard a polack joke.

Is there a "new" polack replacement that is in use? Has it simply disappeared, or is the polack still the one that inevitably gets the worst of 3 nationalities when present in a joke?

Seems like blonde jokes have become more common place.

Yes, but he doesn't deserve it. He was great in The Usual Suspects.

Man, back in the '70s, the Polack joke ruled the day. It died out about the same time as Lech Walesa and Solidarity hit it big in the '80s, it seems to me. I guess helping defeat Communism has its side benefits.

It was accepted enough that "joke books" were available. Somewhere in one of my boxes of paperbacks I'm sure I still have the "Official Polish Joke Book" (I think that was the title). Yup, I was one of them stupid kids.

Chevy Chase: Well, the popular TV personality known as "Professor Backwards" was slain in Atlanta yesterday by three masked gunmen. According to reports, neighbors ignored the Professor's cries of "Pleh! Pleh!"

(groans from the audience)

Chevy Chase: I'm sorry . . .

When the Polish Olympic team won their first gold medal, they were so proud that they had it bronzed.

Re: Do people still tell jokes about polacks?

The only one I've always remembered...

Why did the Polack carry a car door through the desert? So he could roll down the window when he got hot.
