Does anyone else remember the “what do you call a Polish…?” or “How many Pollacks” era? As a child of the 80s there were two groups that were safe to mock and slander without appearing to be horribly racist and out of touch. Blondes and Polish. There were books full of jokes against both. While dumb blonde jokes still show up, although to a lesser amount, it has been years since I heard a Polish joke.
All of this came back to me when I saw this flyer:
That is the best picture I can get. It was taken from a distance and I didn’t want to make a scene of myself. It is a flyer advertising the chicken BBQ at the local Polish church. But I’ll be damned if that’s not a turkey. Which sounds like the punchline of one of those jokes.
