Just for Jokes (Part I)

I’ve been writing a lot about my country lately. I don’t know why. Maybe I wish I could patch things up with it. Have a normal relationship again. Maybe I wish you could understand what it’s like. In an effort to increase OUR understanding of this place, I will endeavor to present you, from time to time, with a sample of the humor which makes up the spirit of RO-people.

This particular joke I heard while getting drunk with some old people, in a countryside mansion:

Three guys die on the same day and go to Paradise. One is French, another is Italian and the third is Romanian. At the gates, an angel stops them. He regretfully lets them know that  they might not be worthy of this place and that, should they wish to enter, they are to describe one act of kindness with which they’ve changed someone’s life before dying.

The Frenchman says, “I saved a puppy from drowning.”

“How did you do it?” the angel asks.

“Well, I saw it splashing about in the water, I knew it was in trouble, so I jumped in, grabbed the puppy, put it on my back and took it to safety.”

“Very well, you may come in.”

Then the Italian: “I saved a child from poverty.”

“How did you do it?”

“I knew from my neighbors of an orphan girl on our street. I took pity on her and fed her, and put her through school. Now she’s grown up into a fine woman.”

“You may pass, spirit.”

At long last, it’s the Romanian’s turn.

“I saved a woman from rape.”

“How did you do it?”

“I talked her into it.””
