Default A fond farewell

Yugo plant closes

I thought about putting this into the Uninteresting Links thread or the Dumb Jokes thread, but I couldn't decide which one it fits into.

There are tons of Yugo jokes out there. Feel free to post your own favorites. Here are some of mine:

What do you call a Yugo's shock absorbers? Passengers.

How do you double the value of a Yugo? Fill the gas tank!

Man to car dealer: "I'd like a gas cap for my Yugo." Dealer: "Sounds like a fair trade."

That was my favourite Skoda joke - except it was windscreen
wipers instead of gas cap.

I was told that back in the 1990s the German equivalent of "Skoda jokes" were Rover jokes. I wonder if any forum member can confirm this.

Why do the German police ticket people who throw chewing gum out of the car window?

Because the Trabbies get stuck in it.


(Ok, this is an old joke, but the old ones are the best.)

Why do Skodas have heated rear windows?

So your hands don't get cold when pushing it.

(Yes, I know a large number of Skoda jokes.)
