This article is about ethnic jokes of former Yugoslavia. For those who don't know - Yugoslavia as a state existed from 1918 - 1991, although to be fair, some smaller remains of the country existed even after 1991. It all of course ended up in unfortunate bloody civil war.
I don't have any intention to explain various difficult relations between nations in former Yugoslavia. It's probably enough if I say here that a very significant percent of people in now six post-Yugoslavian states are very nostalgic about historic period 1918 - 1991.
What I must explain is this: some jokes won't be funny for people that never lived in former Yugoslavia. However they are mostly telling much about relations in that state. I'll learn some and provide for the readers, I promise.
Now, this is very important: I'm not trying to offend anyone. I'll try to explain any missunderstanding, so please feel free to contact me.
NASA sent three astronauts in the space for three years; American, Russian and Bosnian astronaut. They asked each if there's any *absolut -must-have* for the trip. American demanded a whole tank of whiskey. Russian of course demanded the same amount of vodka. Bosnian thought for a moment and said -*I want the whole truck of Marlboro!*
Three years later space ship comes back to Earth.
American astonaut comes out first: *I'd totally freak out if there wasn't whiskey I demanded!*
Russian is next: *I'd really go nuts if there wasn't all that vodka!*
Bosnian comes out last, his hands are shaking, his eyes are quite bloody and he is obviously nervous: *Does anyone have any matches?*
