Those Azeris

One anecdote has a guy approaching his neighbor Gitya, an Avar. He
says, "Gitya, I heard a great joke the other day, but it's about
Avars. I don't want to offend you, so I'll tell it about Azeris." He
tells the joke, and Gitya laughs so hard that tears stream down his
face. "Man," Gitya gasps, catching his breath. "Those Azeris sure are
idiots!"
