Which nationalities are usually used in your country to make jokes? this is just a small example. Back in the 1980's USA and Russia were still struggling to be the best in everything and in order to debate some issues they met in Portugal, a neutral country. USA - We have built a plane that can fly as high as the sky and touch it. Russia - Wow, really touch it? USA - Not really, but only a couple of fingers away. Russia - We have built a submarine that can touch the bottom of the oceans. USA - Wow, really all the way to the bottom? Russia - Not really, but only a couple of fingers away. Portugal - That's nothing. In Portugal women have their children through their bottom. USA & Russia - Wow, really through their bottom? Portugal - Not really, but only a couple of fingers away.

Yes we do have those kind of jokes here. Actually it's a two way street. You see the Belgians like to make jokes about the Dutch being so stingy. The Dutch like to make jokes about Belgians being a bit silly. Sometimes they are really funny. They lose a bit in translation though so I'm sorry not to post one here for you.
