Anyone familiar with the contemporary Russian humorous folklore (jokelore, or in Russian anekdoty) knows that one of the most popular series of such jokes revolves around the Chukchis, the native people of Chukotka, the most remote northeast corner of Russia. These jokes, especially popular in 1990s and 2000s, fit the international genre of ethnic stupidity jokes . . .

Ethnic humor? So am I suppose to be entertained by this or should I be shocked that ethnic humor is becoming popularized by the net sophisticate? Someone please help this poor luddite realize how trendy it is to mock an ethnic culture. Peace out.
