Oh, You Internet.

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Yep, times have changed. I read this one in the Financial Times in the 1980s.

Why do Italian men always grow moustaches?
Because they want to look like their mothers.

And, there were the jokes about the thickness of certain people.

The Brits had jokes about the Irishman being stupid.

The Irish had jokes about the Kerryman being stupid. Example:
A Kerryman got a job as a lumberjack, but try as he might, he couldn't meet his
quota of fifty trees a day. By chance he saw an ad in a shop window for chainsaws
'guaranteed to fell 60 trees a day'. So he bought one, but the best he could manage was forty trees a day.
So he took it back to the shop and complained that there must be something wrong
with it.
"Let me look at it", said the man in the shop. So he took the chainsaw and switched
it on.
"What's that noise?" said the Kerryman.

The Germans had jokes about the Belgian being stupid?

Yes and they were accepted as jokes. No one got bent out of shape and got PTSD over them. No one claimed to have suicidal thoughts because they were being belittled. They were jokes. Most had interchangeable nationalities depending who was telling the joke.

I don't get the victimhood of people these days.

We could, and still do, laugh at ourselves.

To all those who are disgusted with my views either take up cup full of concrete and harden the fuck up or buy some timber , build a bridge and get over it.

Even if hollow, it would not be enough to carry all His Emptiness. And if hollow in Pp, the only Chineses to buy it would smuggle meth with it, but that's just my opinion.
Even free, it's too expensive, just like the real one.
