Swiss Humor

Our Pomona College friend, a Swiss man from Berne, told us, “The Swiss have no sense of humor. Except for me.”

I have found small instances of humor here. The top photo is the back of a billboard facing a sidewalk. The top sign says, “Posting of posters forbidden!” The bottom one says, “This is NOT a poster.” I mentioned this to someone, and they said that the Swiss people would tell you that it was probably an Auslander (foreigner) who did that.


Several days later, someone without a sense of humor must have had something to do with the removal of the non-poster. Too bad. This way looks messy.


The other day I came across the two statues at the University of Zürich, and someone must have thought they were cold, so there were some added touches.

The next day the bunny hats were gone. (This is why I always try to have a camera with me.)

I thought that this bird feeder near our flat was funny, but I’m not sure if it is considered a joke. It’s still there, after all.
