POLISH JOKE

Historical record from James Callow Folklore Archive.

THERE WERE TWO POLLACKS BUILDING A HOUSE. ONE WAS NAILING THE BOARDS
UP WHILE THE OTHER ONE CUT THEM. THE ONE WHO WAS NAILING KEPT CURSING
AND THROWING NAILS AWAY. THE SECOND POLLACK BECAME CURIOUS AND ASKED
HIM WHAT HE WAS DOING. HE SAID THAT SOME OF THE NAILS HAD THE HEAD
ON THE WRONG END AND HE COULDN'T USE THEM SO HE THREW THEM AWAY. THE
OTHER POLLACK REPRIMANDED HIM FOR THROWING THEM AWAY AND TOLD HIM
THAT HE SHOULD SAVE THEM SINCE THEY COULD BE USED ON THE OTHER SIDE
OF THE HOUSE.
