Expressions of Europe
Enough of the seriousness! Time to explore the puns, proverbs and playfulness that characterise how our linguists spend their time. Whether they’re trying to be formal, funny or fiendish, come have a chuckle or twist your tongue to Europe’s most curious manners of speaking.
But who are we laughing at? Belgian jokes are very popular in France, Luxembourg and the Netherlands such as jokes about the Swedes are very common in Norway, Denmark and Finland. In the Baltic countries, people tend to laugh at the Estonians, whereas in Balkan countries, they do jokes about the Bosnians.
