Not much different than blonde jokes, right?
However, blonde jokes evolved from racially insensitive jokes!
Please play nice.
Polish jokes as well as blonde jokes have their own forum.

Hello there NM...doing very well thanks for asking, how are
you? Really unpleasant weather today so am taking the opp

turning a small room I had as a 'work room'(pc and stuff)
into a bedroom. Sounds grander than it is, believe me....:)

Strange you should say, El,
the same here and more gales expected,
altho' last night I was out for a walk with
Ali, it wasn't raining just then but very windy
[we had heavy rain later]
Under amber street lamps,
pale yellow leaves were flying in every direction
and the pathway was carpeted in yellow and red;
as we live higher up,
the winking and twinkling of city lights
in the distance
made a magical backdrop for all this,
It felt like being in a fairytale,
maybe Little Red-riding H(:
and Ali, so easily cast,
as the handsome black wolf with the
pearly snarly teeth! LOL...
'Stop daydreaming Grace, and get on with the day'
Good Day to everyone here.
It really does paint a magical Irish Winter Evening,
almost transported there myself!
I remember a lovely poem you wrote some time ago
of a child (yourself) looking at a dolly in a toy
shoppe window....should love to hear that again
if you please Grace.
Good Day to you and to all here.

Fortunately in rugby, players keep their mouths shut and get on with the game as we always did, regadless of what we think/thought of the ref. It's the soccer boys who tend to throw their toys out of the pram. I do agree it is a pity about the variable standard, but refs are human and cannot always be perfect.
I always remember Ben Ainslie's first Olympics (when he won the silver medal). The Argentinian used the rules rather than sailing ability to get the gold. Ainslie, when asked why he did not protest, simply said that if he had to resort to that, he'd rather not bother. Of course, he went on to win 4 golds at the next four games, the only man in Olympic sailing history so to do. This Olympics when two teams tried to cheat him out of the medal by falsely protesting him, his reaction? "I'm mad, they should realise it's not wise to make me mad". He went on to win gold! A true sportsman.
Is that a good thing though Tony, seriously, commendable in one
respect certainly, but ignoring bad judgement on the pitch can
surely lead to further error, whereas the football players make it
known they are not happy. To err is human certainly, but if three
bad judgements were to be made by one referee, then to my way of thinking he should not referee ever again.
There is too much at stake to have the game sullied by poor calls.
If it were tightened up then the football players would not have to take matters into their own hands....:)

im half polish and when i first met my husband my FIL just loved to go on and on with those jokes, lucky for me it never bothered me. it actually helped me to relax around his family and pretty soon the two of us were trading jokes and seeing who could outdo the other. lol
i loved that man like a father..
jokes are intended to make people laugh and if we cant laugh at ourselves, well i think thats just sad..

My reading discovers the terms rugby football and association football. For your world, those are shortened to rugby and football. One more commonality between rugby and Amerian football I overlooked is the similar oval-shaped ball, rather than being round. Then, a rugby pitch and American football field have yardage increments marked between the goal lines.
You may throw a yellow card: I mis-spoke of Celtic/Irish. I should have used Gaelic football.
Originally, American football had 'H'-shaped goalposts using a cross-bar between uprights which conform to the shape of those used for rugby and Gaelic football. That's another attachment to the old games. American goalposts have been modified so that there is no lower space under the cross bar that is used, and only one post in the ground. The two uprights arising above the crossbar define the space for field goals and points-after-touchdowns where the ball is kicked through.
The pitch and goal posts for Gaelic football are also used for hurling.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaelic_football
There is a separate group and rules for ladies' Gaelic football.
Gaelic football is related to older forms known as caid, according to a link in the article.
Please feel free to show me the red card Cuz....in my best
Fonz impression...I was wr..wr...wr...wr...wrong....:)

Thanks to yourself and Tony, I now realise that there is another
form of football other than English.

Very good day here -
Speeding into Xmas-

Grandson studying hard taken over my laptop! Lol
That, among other things , is what GrannMas are for(:
What's new!

On a more serious note -
I find myself in a bit of an awkward situation-

Am put in a position of accompanying a relative
(Who 'needs ' physical assistance )
For a hospital appmnt-

(The hospital is near where I live
And very far from where the relative & immediate family live)

Thing is there's a serious outbreak
Of the winter vomiting super bug'
there at present, patient visiting has
even been suspended

I honestly don't want to take ANYchances with this
Plus the fact that I'm on heart medication-
I simply don't want to go in there.

I've been there for this relative 'all other times'
Without a problem or regret

But, this is different
A close friend said
'You owe it to yourself to do whats best for ' you'
Too'

Any opinions from the wise and intelligent
Folks on this thread would be welcome indeed-

And please be honest-
If you think I'm being mean don't hesitate in saying so
I'd prefer & Appreciate that

Thanks

Just saw you here PFfff...
speaking for myself, I would never take offence if somebody
told a joke against the English, it breaks the ice.
I do appreciate Boomer's concern though, as he was thinking
of others it could possibly offend. Frank would mean no
harm by it at all.

I was reading some of the quotes that the Duke of Edinburgh
has made throughout the years, I think he has offended every
Nation on Earth, some of his quotes are downright rude, but
so funny.

For instance, he was in the presence of an Arab Prince in all
his fine regala and told him 'you look as though you are ready
for bed'....I bet sometimes the Queen would the ground would
open up underneath him, as my Nan used to say.

Grace....very briefly as I am being called to give my assitance
with this wretched job we are doing between us...lol.

Is there any possiblility of 'putting back' your relative's appointment until another day/week. Don't for a minute think you are being mean...you have to take every precaution when there are such bugs around, by the hospital disclosing it is warning enough.
