The Polish joke I heard recently shouldn't offend too many people, if
only becuase few will understand it. However, I suspect that's not the
case here, so...

Back in the days of the Iron Curtain, a group of Polish people decided to
defect to the west. They managed to capture an aeroplane, and one of them
thought he could fly it. So they all got in and it took off... They then
flew west, and kept on flying.

After some time, the pilot said over the intercom. 'Well, we've made it.
We are now over the United States of America. In fact we are flying into
New York. If you look out of the windows on the starboard side, you will
see the Statue of Liberty'.

All the passengers got out of their seats and rushed to see this.
Unfortunately, the uneven weight distribution caused ther plane to roll
over and crash.

Which illustrates that 'Too many poles in the right hand half of the
plane leads to instabilty' :-)
