Smile Jokes.....

Does anyone here know any authentic (up to date/topical) jokes from Turkey?

In English & Turkish would be helpful.


Most if not all those on here could be classed as 'British' so do any of you know a good Turkish wisecrack?

Thanks,

YL.

Re: Jokes.....

Google Nasreddin (Nasrettin) Hoca and quite a few good funny stories will come up (Not modern, but still applicable).

Nasreddin is a satirical Sufi figure who is believed to have lived during the Middle Ages (around 13th century), in Aksehir, and later in Konya, under the Seljuq rule. Nasreddin was a populist philosopher and wise man, remembered for his funny stories and anecdotes.

Nasreddin Nasreddin


Sıkarken
Nasrettin hoca bir gün yolun kenarında kedisini yıkıyormuş. Yoldan geçen arkadaşı hocaya:
Hocam kediyi yıkama ölür, demiş.
Hoca aldırış etmemiş ve yıkamış. Arkadaşı dönüşte hocayı tekrar yolun kenarında görmüş. Kedi ölmüş. Adam:
Hocam ben size kediyi yıkamayın ölür demedimmi? demiş.Hoca:
Ben kediyi yıkarken ölmediki sıkarken öldü demiş.

Wringing
One day, Hodja was washing a cat near a road. One of his friends who was passing by told him:
Hodja, don’t wash the cat. Otherwise, it will die.
Hodja didn’t take notice of him and went on washing. On his way back, the man saw Hodja with the dead cat. The man told him:
Did I not tell you? If you wash a cat, it will die.
Hodja replied immediately:
It didn’t die when I was washing it. It died while I was wringing it.

Re: Jokes.....

Thanks, Bickern.

I've had a look at these previously re Hoca, but if you try telling them to your friends in England, most of the time they'll look at you as if you've just landed in a spaceship.

Young Johnny and Susie were playing doctor, on the back porch when Susie's mom popped in on them. "You're gonna get a good lickin when daddy gets home" she said Susie replied, "Johnny's been doing that all afternoon."
