Dutch sign language jokes, not very politically correct

By

Watch this video here, we can’t embed it. It is subtitled in English.

They say it is a prejudice to sign a headscarf as a symbol for the cheap German supermarket chain Aldi where Muslims shop and to sign a pointy helmet for Germans referring to the WWII. It’s nice to know that the Dutch speaking world is not alone in its prejudices.

And the Dutch have five sign language dialects because they had five different schools that did their own thing.

The sign for Facebook does remind me of a fish.
