Why is Poland just like the United States?

In the United States you can't buy anything for zlotys and in
Poland you can't either, while in the U.S. you can get whatever you
want for dollars, just as you can in Poland.

pronounced "Jedder."}

A large oil field in Oklahoma suffers a disaster in the form of a huge rig
fire. The foreman, desperate to curtail the blaze, thumbs thru the phone book
for Red Adare's number (Red is a famous oil-firefighter). Foreman finds the
number, calls, and is told that Red is unavailable, since he's fighting an
off-shore rig fire in Southern California.

Desperate, the foreman returns to the book and finds, listed under Red Adare,
a "Red <suitable JEDR surname>", advertising rig fire services at $100 per
hour. Since this is CONSIDERABLY cheaper than Adare anyway, the guy calls and
describes the situation. He is assured that someone will be on the scene
within the hour.

True to his word, within 45 minutes the foreman sees a vehicle approaching the
scene of the blaze at top speed. As it gets closer, he notes that it is a
grungy '68 pickup, with a load of JEDRs in the back. Without slowing,
the pickup drives directly into the middle of the fire, everyone in the back
jumps out with soaking-wet blankets, and with intense screaming and running
around, proceed to beat out the fire completely.

Red approaches the foreman and gives him a bill for $100 (one hour minimum)
The foreman is so impressed, he offers him an additional $500 bonus for the
prompt and effective work. "Man, this will REALLY help" says Red.

"Oh?" says the foreman. "How so?"

"Now I can go buy brakes for the truck."
