The following examples of national stereotypes was sent to us by a reader, we thought it was very funny, with some typical truths within the joke. If however if you are easily offended when people poke fun at your nationality then please click back and go on to the next story - this one is intended to start the weekend with a laugh.
On a beautiful deserted island in the middle of nowhere, the following group of people are shipwrecked:
Two Italian men and one Italian woman - Two French men and one French woman - Two German men and one German woman - Two Greek men and one Greek woman - Two Bulgarian men and one Bulgarian woman - Two Japanese men and one Japanese woman - Two Chinese men and one Chinese woman - Two Australian men and one Australian woman - Two Irish men and one Irish woman and Two English men and one English woman.
One month later on the same island in the middle of nowhere, the following things have occurred:
-One Italian man killed the other Italian man for the Italian woman.
-The two French men and the French woman are living happily together in a ménage-à-trois.
-The two German men have a strict weekly schedule of alternating visits with the German woman.
-The two Greek men are sleeping with each other and the Greek woman is cleaning and cooking for them.
-The two Bulgarian men took one long look at the endless ocean, another long look at the Bulgarian woman, and started swimming.
-The two Japanese men have emailed Tokyo and are awaiting instructions.
-The two Chinese men have set up a pharmacy, a liquor store, a restaurant and a laundry, and have got the woman pregnant in order to supply employees for their stores.
-The two Australian men are contemplating suicide because the Australian woman keeps complaining about her body, the true nature of feminism, how she can do everything they can do, the necessity of fulfilment, the equal division of household chores, how sand and palm trees make her look fat, how her last boyfriend respected her opinion and treated her nicer than they do, how her relationship with her mother is improving and how at least the taxes are low and it isn't raining.
-The two Irish men have divided the island into North and South and have set up a distillery. They do not remember if sex is in the picture because it gets sort of foggy after the first few litres of coconut whisky. But, they're satisfied because at least the English aren't having any fun.
-The two English men are waiting for someone to introduce them to the English woman.
We can't claim credit but thought it deserved to be passed on.....
