Peter Lax jokes (heard in his lectures) : 1. What's the contour integral around Western Europe? Answer: Zero, because all the Poles are in Eastern Europe! Addendum: Actually, there ARE some Poles in Western Europe, but they are removable!

BTW I got taken for a Pole last Sunday in Dublin's most famous bar (Mulligans) just before the Wintersun concert. The guy got a bit stroppy, especially when I did my Russian accent. LOL It was like a scene from Ulysses. LOL

is it one of those photos where there's something there that's not supposed to be there?
I came across one the other week which said a wife left her husband (or maybe vice versa) because of it, and there was an indistinguishable blur which they said was a naked person under the bed

Yes, I ran into it without any caption or context, then later found this version with polish text. Somehow I want to know whats going on but I'm aware that it can also be a prank to keep people like me busy.

I'm at easy now though, as I understand it someone replaced the dad picture with a Putin portrait. And maybe the middle picture with someone standing next to Kim Jun I'll?
