If you ever think that the Balkans are boring with boring people who have no sense of humor at all, then I just would recommend you to continue reading. My attention was drawn to the following Tweet yesterday:

Of course this it not in Croatia (it is in Sri Lanka) , but that does not matter. What matters were the replies from people from the Balkans (mostly ex-Yugoslavia) which gives you a good insight about the humor the people have in this region. For example the beautiful nature of Pančevo in Serbia, which is close to Belgrade and has massive industry.

The Sabacki Vasar is actually a huge fair in Šabac, Western Serbia, where you can buy everything and eat of course a lot of meat. The lions from Croatia would love it:

We all need a good joke sometimes, beside all the serious news we have to consume daily and people in the Balkan region know how to produce a good laugh ;-).
And yes I hate Mondays too @nada_speranza 😉
