"I naprzod i dalej i wyzej..." ("And forward and farther and higher..."). This clock is a fruit of Polish ambition which results in excellence. This is where we are better than Germans because we aren't control freaks. We are gifts to the world. We are simply Poles!

It may be accurate, but why does it run the wrong way?

My Pocketwatch is pretty accurate, providing I wind it regularly.

The Germans today couldn't invade a wet paper bag. They are too old and Muslims have already invaded Germany with impunity.

I didn't know pollock fish built clocks.

I guess you meant the anti-Polish slur "Polack" and the Nazi slurs against Polish people derived from Nazi Germany.

In that case it figures a bozo would try to push Nazi ethnic slurs against Polish people.

No, I meant the fish, which rather ruins the rest of your silly tirade.

Two pollacks are walking down the street. One looks at the other and says 'Hey, buddy! Can you spare a fin?'

Yes by people who are anti-Polish bigots and who are low class.

The Nazis also thought that. They were the ones who started that anti-Polish propaganda and then NBC-TV introduced it to the American people in the 1960's (with out telling the origin of anti-Polish propaganda) because they hate Polish people.

The anti-Polish Bigots at NBC-TV wanted to implant their own anti-Polish prejudice into the minds of the American people. Evidently they have succeeded with people like you.

But who are Pollocks??

I guess you mean "Polacks" which is an ethnic slur against Polish people. Polish people killed in Nazi concentration camps were called Polacks before they were murdered.

By the way, Black people have been known to be backward. Would you agree with that?

You are right and I was wrong. I admitted it was in bad taste. You must admit I wasn't the first to use the slur in here. And yes, there are backwards people from every race. Even Purple people have been known to drink too much fermented alien slime and fly their space vehicles into things.
