Bosnian Humour


I've been wanting to write a post about Bosnian humour for ages, but couldn't find the right way to illustrate it. How do you represent something that is creative, quirky, totally irreverent and very funny? Then I saw this picture on Amila Bosnae's blog. It is entitled What to do in Bosnia on a winter's day and was taken this year in Sarajevo. To me, this epitomises Bosnian humour perfectly.


.

I can't find who to credit, so if you know then please let me know.



PS - in case you are wondering... we have now totally finally and officially left Bosnia. We even (eventually) got the car export documents stamped. Our total belongings and the dog are in the back of the car. We have made our stately and rather cramped progress across Europe and are now somewhere around Switzerland? France maybe?  Should be back proper on Tuesday.

I still can't stop laughing whenever I see it again. XD I found it in this Facebook group: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=56654294160&ref=ts

It was posted by Emina Huskić.

A lot of the photos in the group aren't funny at all, but then there are some that just crack me up... :D This one is SO Bosnian to me.

Great photo !

Think driving may turn out to have been a good thing given the UK is currently in lock down from the air

Congratulations on the car export thing!

Drive safely

Hello again Brit IN Britain I guess now, after a logn gap I have evaded the Kazakh censors and am having a lovely time reading up my fave blogs. Love the snow men. I saw a voluptuous snow woman with huge tits on the side of the road here last winter, but VERY sadly, didnt have my camera. xx Hope settling back in continues smoothly.

I love it! And living in Bahrain, in the Middle East, I can't help but feel jealous... I will never have one of those.
