Polish Pride


I saw this bumper sticker this morning, and became immediately confused. Because I did not know what Polish people were supposed to be proud of.

I understand how terrible of a statement that just was, and that's the point. All the "pollock" jokes I heard growing up in school. Grandmother's on both sides of my family who continually think of people by their nationality.

Nationalism just doesn't make sense to me. And yet it stuck with me.

No, no, no. It's Pah-lish pride, like nail polish. They just like getting fancied up, that's all.
