JOKES OF THE MONTH

Competition

The Bulgarian National Circus went out of business. It could not compete with the government, the National Assembly, the Sofia City Council and the president...

Politics

– Are you interested in politics?
– Of course.
– Passively or actively?
– ?
– I mean, are you an MP or you just watch TV?


EU

What now that we are in the European Union? Many people still live in the Soviet Union.

 

Nightly Bread

An MP meets with his constituency. A man shouts from the last row: "Your honour, do you know that many people go to bed without bread?
"This is an insinuation! There are so many night shops around!"


Pigs

Delyan Peevski went to pay an official visit to a pig farm. A reporter took some snapshots and then thought what captions to use. "Peevski among pigs," "Pigs and Delyan," "Delyan and pigs..." The reporter was at a loss. Then he decided: "Delyan Peevski (third from left) visited a pig farm."

 

TXT

The National Assembly sent its quarterly report in a text message.


Birds

Two old men sit on a bench and feed the sparrows.
– Hey, did you know that these sparrows are like our politicians?
– Why?
– When they are on the ground they are quite happy with little bread crumbs. But when they start flying they will shit on your head."


New Law

Bulgarian physicists discovered a new law. In Bulgaria, corruption is not generated, nor does it disappear. It just transits from one government to the next.


Socialist Realism

Boyko Borisov and Vezhdi Rashidov, the former culture minister, went to look at the Museum of Socialist Art. Boyko Borisov commented: "This Lenin statue weighs 32 tons. This is a portrait of Todor Zhivkov. This is a picture of class struggle. And this is a fine example of Socialist Realism: a gangster and a bum."

"This is the mirror sir," said the guide.


Ministerial Call

A government minister makes a phone call to his wife. He hears a pre-recorded message: "Owing to the reduced budget of the Interior Ministry we are unable to monitor this call at the moment. Please try later. Your call is important for us. Beep."


World Economic Crisis

The World Economic Crisis is flying around the world. She looks down at America and says: "Ah, I've done a good job here."
Then she goes over Europe and sees Britain, France and Germany: "Not bad here either," she murmurs.
Then she looks at Bulgaria.
"Ah! Boyko has managed without me!"


Bats

A man and a woman are engaged in conversation.
– Where will you be going tonight?
– I am going to a protest rally.
– But why are you carrying a baseball bat and a knuckleduster?
– Because I am going to support Volen Siderov.


Shrink

An MP sees his shrink. "Doc, I have a multiple personality disorder. I speak out one thing, but I think something else and then I do something completely different."
"Don't worry," the shrink replies. "This means you are a completely normal MP."

IRON BARS, NO IRON BARS
Lovers of freedom were quick to cry fowl. Is this what the supposedly liberal, pro-Western Changes Continued government is doing? Protecting itself from the love of the general public with iron bars?

WHAT'S IN A NAME?
A recent example is the Sofia City Council's decision to rename one of the streets around where the Russian Embassy is situated to The Heroes of Ukraine, and a nearby small square to Boris Nemtsov.

Boyko Borisov under arrest
WE CATCH THEM, THEY LET THEM GO FREE
As soon as the news of the Thursday evening arrests broke out a significant chunk of the Bulgarian population went into a frenzied jubilation comparable, according to one observer, to that goal at the 1994 World Championship Bulgaria scored against Germany.

OLD IS NEW, AND VICE VERSA
The leaders of the Bulgarian Socialist Party, or BSP, Kornelia Ninova; of Yes Bulgaria, Hristo Ivanov; and of Democratic Bulgaria, or DB, Gen Atanas Atanasov resigned.

HYPOCRISY AD INFINITUM
The video, shot in the National Assembly, shows an young MP for the ruling Changes Continued political party who takes up the rostrum to make a statement to the house and then... forgets what he was about to do.

BALLOT EATING AS LAST RESORT
Ahead of the 14 November general election some parties – notably the DB, or Democratic Bulgaria, and the ITN, or There Is Such a People party – insisted on taking away the good old-fashioned paper election ballots that you had to use a pen to put a cross ag

OF PIGEONS AND VACCINATIONS
In the neighbourhood, I asked a retired woman, who habitually makes a public nuisance by throwing bread crumbs out of her fourth-floor balcony to feed Sofia's uncontrolled population of pigeons, to stop doing that because a uncontrolled population of pigeon

ITN, FORMERLY NTD, IMV, IBGNI ETC
A sober look at the current mess of Bulgarian politics in the aftermath of 12 years of Boyko Borisov may produce some unexpected if slightly idiosyncratic explanations.

DID BOYKO DRIVE AN ILLEGAL JEEP?
Dignitaries, ministers and even foreign guests were "invited" into the jeep while the Bulgarian prime minster went for a government-provided ride.

FACT-CHECKING BOYKO BORISOV
Usually made in his inimitable style, a combination of uncouth nativism and broadspeak, they can easily fill up books. Here is a selection of Borisov's most recent public statements, rendered verbatim:

MAKING THE ROUNDS IN BULGARIA
At the beginning of an exam a student turns to the professor: "Let's now see what you have taught me online." * "Do you remember when we were optimistic and made grandiose plans?"
joke of the month
COFFEE AND CROISSANTS, PLEASE
It probably is, but the genius computerists hide themselves very well, and certainly do not work for Boyko Borisov's government.
