A Kiss in the Dark
In the train compartment during the war, sitting were a German officer, a Romanian officer, an old lady and an attractive girl. When the train entered a tunnel and the compartment was in pitch dark, the passengers heard a kiss, then a vigorous slap. When the train emerged into the light, everyone remained silent, but the German officer had a black eye.
The old lady was thinking, “What a good girl she is! She kept the Romanian pride.” 100 % of the readers who have reached this point must have imagined the same scene as the old lady did as to what had happened in the dark.
But what the remaining three were thinking were all different from each other.
The girl: “Why did the German try to kiss the old lady, not me?”
The German officer: “The Romanian bastard stole a kiss, and put the blame on me. I’m sure of that, but who’d believe me?”
The Romanian officer: “How clever I was! I kissed the back of my hand first, then hit the German. See, the German cannot make a fuss about it, can he?”
The Romanian people were always suffering from the arrogant behavior of German officers. The Romanian officer hit upon an idea to return a blow the moment the train entered the tunnel and immediately moved into action.
(This joke was written during World War Two when Romania allied with Germany with the sole objective of having its territory recovered from Russia. The notation of the name of the country is in German style, Rumania, different from the present one, Romania.)
