Black humour from the Third Reich

Julian Assange - enemy of the state
“At the Belgium border crossing, huge numbers of rabbits appear one day and declare that they are political refugees. ‘The Gestapo wants to arrest all giraffes as enemies of the state.’ – ‘But you’re not giraffes.’ – ‘We know that, but try explaining that to the Gestapo!’”
