    Many people here love America in the way that hobbits secretly fetishize orks for their power, and they find it disheartening when I don't. So I don't think jokes about the US would go down well. But every joke about Polish people and gypsies is by default funny because they're losers.

    Edit: I just read an article about how this country is the most racist in Europe and it makes total sense. Luckily Americans get a pass from them though!

    Most jokes I see about other cultures aren't really jokes in the same way that sarcasm isn't really funny. They're more of a power play, and normally punching down.

    There are many exceptions that seem genuinely funny (or maybe I'm just the target audience). I've always been embarrassingly partial to "in Soviet Russia" jokes. I like Sedaris' "6 to 8 Black Men." This one made me laugh but he's on my side so whatever.
