Odessa is a city located on the shore of the Black Sea and is famous by its unique style of humor.  There is a special category of jokes in the Russian culture: “Odessa jokes” in which people from Odessa are laughing at themselves.   Translating Odessa jokes into English is an unappreciated task, however, we will try to translate some selected jokes.  Enjoy!
