[ Translated, re-edited, puritanically censored where deemed reasonable by A.R. Pruss (email@example.com). Original Polish text from firstname.lastname@example.org. Obviously some of humour the original has to have been lost, except in one case where we actually gained a good pun for free in literal translation :-) (Will you spot it?) The original jokes were set in Wachock, Poland; the place names were changed to make the jokes more euphoneous for the English reader. ] Ever had a nightmare about being stuck in a small town without Internet access, or even UUCP?
