I came across this humorous interview with a Syrian-born New York actor about his type-casting. He tells some funny stories, with the occasional profanity. The first 10-20 seconds of audio is garbled but it clears up after that. It's about 9 min long, . If I made movies, I'd hire this guy in a minute. :)

A young woman finished her workday and boarded a commuter train for the ride home. She was bushed, so leaned back and closed her eyes in hope of catching a short nap.

A moment later a 40-something man sat next to her and immediately made a call on his cell phone, apparently to his wife.
“Hi dear, it’s me, Alan. I had to catch a later train because the meeting ran late…Yes of course I was at the meeting…no, of course this has nothing to do with my secretary…you know you’re the only one for me.”

So on and so forth, blah blah blah, until the young woman got fed up. She leaned close to the man and said loudly “Alan, put down your phone and come back to bed.”

A blonde, wanting to earn some money, decided to hire herself out as a handyman-type and started canvassing a wealthy neighborhood.
She went to the front door of the first house and asked the owner if he had any jobs for her to do. "Well, you can paint my porch. How much will you charge?"

The blonde said "How about 50 dollars?" The man agreed and told her that the paint and other materials that she might need were in the garage. The man's wife, inside the house, heard the conversation and said to her husband, "Does she realize that the porch goes all the way around the house?" The man replied, "She should, she was standing on it."
A short time later, the blonde came to the door to collect her money. "You're finished already?" he asked. "Yes," the blonde answered, "and I had paint left over, so I gave it two coats." Impressed, the man reached in his pocket for the $50. "And by the way," the blonde added, "it's not a Porch, it's a Ferrari."

Here's the version I heard:

In heaven:

- All the cooks are French
- All the lovers are Italian
- All the police are English
- All the mechanics are German
- And everything is organized by the Swiss.

In hell:

- All the cooks are English
- All the lovers are Swiss
- All the police are German
- All the mechanics are French
- And everything is organized by the Italians

For Germans, humor is a serious thing.

Hahaha. I like this kind of humor. ;D

But just in case and for the record, Switzerland and Germany are two different countries. And also different peoples.

Germans deservedly earned a bad name some time ago. I'd say that IMHO this is by far not the case anymore. At least in what concerns the police.

Ron Chesterfield, 89 years of age, was stopped by the police around 2 a.m. and was asked where he was going at that time of night.
Ron replied, "I'm on my way to a lecture about alcohol abuse and the effects it has on the human body, as well as smoking and staying out late."
The officer asked, "Really? Who's giving that lecture at this time of night?"
Ron replied, "That would be my wife.
