It's not that Peak Stupidity is in the throes of a period of Political Correctness here. Polack jokes have been fun. I didn't really get the "Polacks are stupid" premise to begin with, though, having never really known any Polish people besides one roommate long ago, and he was bright enough. (I don't remember asking him to screw in a light bulb, so I'm not completely sure about him.)
No, our request here for the cessation of these jokes is simply based on embarrassment. Who are Americans and other English speakers to make jokes about any foreigners now, with the stupidity going on that can be made fun of so easily by others? Even Volvo of Sweden, a PC heaven, has seen fit to make fun of the English-speaking readers of their ad, yet leave the Polacks alone:
The American/Euro joke in this case was about our Genderbender nonsense, spread far and wide as a most important issue. Note that the English language ad has an interracial gay couple with a daughter, adopted I guess, but who knows, while the Polish ad shows a normal couple (although the guy does look a little too swarthy for a Polack).
This is an ad not for the car itself, but for employment. The virtue signaling in it is likely there to sell cars too though. If they think this ad will help sell cars to any normal Americans, or make them more likely to consider Volvo for employment*, well, no, surely they are joking with us. I don't see a Polish joke in the Polish ad's graphic.
It's now time for the world to make fun of Americans, I guess. Peak Stupidity will refrain from Polish jokes in the hopes that the Polacks won't notice us and the stupidity here. Wetback, Negro, Wop, Jap, Chink, Kike, and Canuck jokes are still strongly encouraged.
* I suppose even for normal people, if the wife is about to pop out a few kids in the next few years, one could take advantage of this offer. Otherwise, this ad just screams "HR ladies! Ahhhhhh!"
[UPDATED 02/02:] Commenter Alarmist informed me that "EMEA region" in the ad means European Middle East Africa region. I changed the wording. As The Alarmist wrote, I don't think the Moslem world would take any more kindly to this crap that Peak Stupidity does (a mark in their favor). I'm guessing the idea was to virtue-signal and put some Wokeness in the face of the English speaking world, while still advertising their employment policy.
