Q:

What is a good Bosnian joke?

A:

A good Bosnian joke is, "A Bosnian and a Japanese were talking about priorities. The Japanese said, 'For me, Japan is first, then my job, and then comes the family.' The Bosnian said, 'For me, it is the opposite. First comes my family, then my job, and then comes Japan.'"

Humor can be reflective of a society's character. Bosnian jokes are usually described as self-deprecating. Bosnians are good at imagining funny stories where they seem primitive or even dumb. Such jokes can be seen as a way the people protest against some of the world's harsh realities. Another way of looking at the jokes is that Bosnians are highly capable of self-reflection regarding their identity.
