Latvian Jokes

“What is a Latvian joke?” you might be asking. Latvian jokes are short examinations aimed at poking fun at the everyday life of farmers and townsfolk living in a country that’s still suffering from Soviet era isolationism in freezing, war torn country with very little food. Latvian jokes usually work in a reference to a potato and the ever present politburo. Scroll down to see some of the funniest examples.

Two Latvian Look at clouds. One see potato. Other see impossible dream. Is same cloud.


Why does Latvian man like mashed potatoes? Is crushed like dreams.

Latvian comedian say "What deal with potato?" Latvian crowd not laugh. Comedian squint into darkness to see crowd. There no crowd. All die from malnourish.

Latvian jokes are the best jokes.

    Funny how the Latvians who wrote these jokes could find these beautiful stock images on which to use ROFLBOT to add English text, and still not lose their accent.

    Maybe it’s a kind of awareness raising about the poeple who were deported to Siberia by communists? Otherwise… Weird? And I don’t know any Latvian whose english is that poor.

    Latvian is very good English. Joke is bad. Not laugh.

    Any joke goodly, which laughter causes. No reality to connection, still, specific mood and imagery present, good universe for jocularity making, laugh, laugh.

    Something like this :)

    This guy started the Latvian joke thing. He spent a couple of years here during his peace corps mission, and started these jokes on his blog:
    Some are funny. But timing for this post is bad, exactly 70 years ago in this day thousands of intelligent and wealthy Latvian families were sent with cargo trains to Siberia by Russian communists, communist regime caused what the original joke author later saw in Latvia during early 90’s.

    So these remind me of “Polock” jokes; cruel false narrative making fun of an ethnic stereotype but with a added bad accent twist. Probably NOT made by Latvians.

    My Brother-in-Law is 100% Latvian, and was telling us about growing up in Latvia where his family had a room specifically for holding potatoes. I asked him what the punchline was. He said there was no punchline. Was Latvian joke.

    I am offended on behalf of other people that are not able to be offended as they are not aware of these jokes. Also I am Polish and I am offended as they should be Polish jokes. Such offence, such disappoint. Much sorrow.

    Not many violated, really violated people come out on the net. Most of course for what it can do in harm of their family, but also how big of a fight the world is going to take with us. I want to show young people their legal and artistic right, but your “land of the free” makes it misinterpreted and Sometimes opposites of what you ment
    Love, as much as you can, as a human, not as body
