We Czechs are very humorous and make jokes almost about everything. Unfortunately, foreigners do not catch it. Especially English people are very resistent to Czech humor and manytimes do not catch the point, because they find Czech humor inappropriate. We are also have, I would say "national feature", called "švejkování". It means, when any new rule is introduced, we find very quickly, how to break it. We simply find the way, how to do that thing so way, it it not againist the rule, but in fact the rule is broken, or we obay it to absurdity, so the rule is canceled. Have a fun :) transtation: What´s wrong, Sam? Why are you stopping? It is an another district, Mr. Frodo. (reaction on the new restriction, which prevent us to leave our district)
