A Polish immigrant went to the DMV to apply for a driver’s license.

First, of course, he had to take an eye sight test.

The optician showed him a card with the letters

‘C Z W I X N O S T A C Z.’

‘Can you read this?’ the optician asked.

‘Read it?’ the Polish guy replied, ‘I know the guy.’

edit: FUCKYEAH tnx for the upvotes, kind strangers

  1. Remove the “X” and the first “Z” and I *literally* know the guy.

    Aaaaaaan I just removed this comment by accident by pasting the contents of the deleted message here.

    If you ever doubted my Polishness you can’t now! You can learn to mash the keyboard at random to sound Polish but you can’t learn this.

    *Plz to help mods*.

  2. Life is funnier than jokes sometimes. Certain polish driver was fined multitude of times by Irish police, but they couldn’t track him until they found out that what they thought was his name – Prawo Jazdy means driving license in polish.

  3. LOL’ing as a guy with a Polish girlfriend. I’m the boss at learning languages and pronouncing them correctly. Then I met her and started learning Polish. Now I’m humbled. I mean, it’s just ridiculous. Other countries like the Netherlands pride themselves on difficult to pronounce words/places, but Dutch has nothing on Polish. So many different pronunciations of sh, ch. Then the most difficult grammar you could ever imagine. It takes Polish kids years before they can speak Polish decently because the human brain has to take longer to figure it out compared to other languages.

  4. We don’t use x, besides this Czwinostacz sounds believable.
    You could even make it Czwinostaczkiewicz or Szczawinostaczkiewicz and I could believe those are just some rare names from another region of Poland.

  5. I just showed my Polish girlfriend this joke. She handed my phone back to me and went, “The problem with that is, I didn’t read the letters separately, I read the whole thing.” Not being Polish, I asked, “Is that similar to a real word?” She goes, “It’s similar to a few…” and I don’t even know what to make of it.
