POLISH JOKE

Historical record from James Callow Folklore Archive.

A POLLOCK, A BLACKMAN, AND A WHITE MAN WENT TO THE
DESERT. THE POLLOCK BROUGHT A CAR DOOR, THE BLACKMAN
BROUGHT SOMETHING TO EAT, AND THE WHITEMAN BROUGHT
SOMETHING TO DRINK. THE WHITEMAN ASKED THE BLACKMAN,
"WHY DID YOU BRING FOOD?" THE BLACKMAN SAID, "IN CASE
I GET HUNGARY I'LL HAVE SOMETHING TO EAT". THE
BLACKMAN ASKED THE WHITEMAN, "WHY DID YOU BRING
SOMETHING TO DRINK?" THE WHITEMAN SAID, "IN CASE I
GET THIRSTY". THEN THE BLACKMAN AND THE WHITEMAN ASKED
THE POLLOCK, "WHY DID YOU BRING A CAR DOOR?" THE POLLOCK
SAID, "IN CASE IT GOT HOT I COULD ROLL DOWN THE
WINDOW."
