Complex of America? Not with us! Poles do not have the slightest reason to feel worse than the Americans. Quite the contrary. We are sending them to the head in almost every field. In our food is healthy - strawberry tastes like strawberry and tomato like tomato.

And in the U.S.? Sam shocker! Americans wcinają Crap and the power of Tiya. How do they look? When you enter the elevator, wait for the next, so as not to be flattened on the cake. And that's not all. Presuming the citizens of the United States can only envy us ponadtysiącletniej history, culture and sophistication in the world. Examples are not lacking. Here are 20 reasons why we are better than the Americans.

>> See the same, that we are better than the Americans!

I went to Catholic high school in Queens with a lot of first generation Polish-Americans and I was at first perplexed when the Polish joke fad started. In my experience, Poles were more like Jews in that they appeared to be a cut above the average intellectually. Physcially, they tended to atheletic, but graviated towards soccer and track rather than football and basketball.

Cant’ argue with a few of them (namely country music and Paris Hilton). Dead wrong on bourbon though, so they can shove it.

Do not chase the oval ball. Soccer, which enjoys a majority of Poles, requires intelligence. And football is a game for bezmózgowców. Do not blindly chase the oval ball like a puppet in the helmets on their heads.

It’s not “us”. I agree...it’s our President. When they blame America, I don’t believe they are talking about the American people. They are talking about our government.

That was pretty funny. I’ve heard Polish jokes for years (and told a few to Polish relatives) so I find it interesting to see what they throw back at us.

Hey Jerzy Kubrak!

I am of Polish descent. I am also a brother of Phi Kappa Theta.

My father fought in a World War to liberate Poland.

I used to like Polish people.

I think they know that. It’s similar to the way we felt towards Poland when it was under Soviet domination and had a communist and pro-Soviet government. Most Americans despised the Polish government then and were solidly behind Wech Welensa, et als. The Poles do not assume all Americans are like ObaMugabe and his minions.

One of Hitler's first act was to assassinate scores of Polish military minds, as a preemptive move against a formidable foe.

1. I’m part Polish. Just enough to recognize the attitude. My sense, from my family, and one visit to Poland, is that Poles like things done right and do not suffer fools easily. And they can be blunt. Not ones to hesitate to be judgmental to spare somebody’s feelings. On the other hand, because they value rationality and excellence and hard work, they can produce top-notch things. Also, there is a dry sense of humor, and a confidence about who they are as Poles. And many have a rock-solid consistency in their faith. (Not all. My nephew managed to meet and marry a Polish atheist.)

2. That’s a hilarious translation. “Do not chase the oval ball.”

3. If the Poles are so self-controlled, why do they have explicit porn ads next to their little slide show? My young daughter came up behind me as I was looking at it. Now I’m going to have to find out if she saw the naked woman and do some explaining if she did. Thanks, Poland. Not.

You are right! I would be lashing out at us too. They are a small and new country, constantly in fear of it’s neighbor. They fought hard for their freedom, and now it is in jeopardy. We have chosen to abandon them...I would be angry too.

“Bezmózgowców” is a plural form of “bezmózgowiec’, which means “a brain-less one”.

I'm afraid it may be unpronounceable for a foreigner ;-)

Well, two reasons. The second is, Poland didn't have the progressive fifth column-created wisdom to install a Communist Kenyan 6% black anti-American puppet as their chief executive.

There is a small town in Virginia, not far from Virginia Tech, called Pulaski. It’s named after the Polish Count who came to aid General Washington during our revolution. He was instrumental in forming our cavalry, if memory serves.

I think they're hacked off at the Liar-in-Chief.

Which is sort of perplexing because I remember hearing somewhere that if the Obamassiah got elected, all of the world would love us.

The article highlights stereotypes and promotes what the Poles do well. Meh. It wasn’t all that inflammatory to me, since it doesn’t take much effort to refute nearly every claim.

The bit slamming us for our debt to China I can’t argue with. I wish our country didn’t owe anyone a dime.

Well, it's a knee-jerk reaction to the missile shield debacle (i.e. Poland having a stand-off with Russia including a trade war etc. without getting anything in return). Of course Poles feel that they got f*cked again - not as much as by the WWII allies, but the reflex is still intact.

Best laugh it off!

True, but the Polish military gets courage points for charging German tanks with horse cavalry. Stupid to be sure, but courageous.

And they did give the world pierogies.

Yeah, Poland should have ignored the fact that their military was ruined, the people starved and they had no weapons and fought the battle tested Russian army fresh off the victory with Germany.
FDR and the other allies sold the Polish people into slavery. And that shows how much appeasement works.

If they "allowed" it to happen, I'm sure it had nothing to do with the 500,000 Soviet troops stationed there after WWII and the absence of 6 million partiots that lost their lives in the conflict. Of course that was later scaled back to a paltry 150,000 troops and a heavy KGB presence but that's no reason at all to accept the boot of communism on your neck just because the boot of communism happens to be on your neck.

Yeah they sure are spineless just "allowing" that to happen.
