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."

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?"

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.

MONEY FOR NOTHING
Ahead of the general election scheduled for 4 April, which is expected to generate a record-low turnout owing to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Boyko Borisov's chief prosecutor, Ivan Geshev, conducted a number of spectacular busts with an obvious potential

the painting
LONG LIVE BOYKO BORISOV!
The picture, in oil, executed in the best (or worst) traditions of late Socialist Realism was immediately picked up by social media users.

NO SAUERKRAUT IN BG AMBULANCES
The overwhelming majority of Bulgarians wait in earnest for the sauerkraut, or kiselo zele, to ferment, or vtasa.

Joke of the month 170.jpg
ARBEIT MACHT FREI
The tweeting machine is set in motion, slamming anyone the president for reasons that will probably remain a mystery forever considers a "hater" and a "loser."

tsvetan tsvetanov.jpg
WHAT WE HAVE AS A TOPIC...
Tsv. Tsv., as he is sometimes popularly referred to, is the head of the Euro-Atlantic Centre for Security, a thinktank set up by himself when he was forced to resign from GERB, in 2019. Tsvetanov and "thinktank" in the same sentence?

'VIRTUAL' ANIMALS SUCK EU FUNDS
According to him, there were anywhere between 100,000 and 120,000 "virtual animals" getting about 20 million leva per year, adding the grand total was a lot more as there was no reliable data about virtual cows and bees.

INSPECTING SITES, GIVING DIRECTIONS
Both Borisov and his North Korean counterpart, Kim Jong-un, like to be seen inspecting things.
