An Old JokeA WWII joke notices that formerly, city mayors used to say to each other on meeting:
"Kan het zijn dat ik U ken?" hear - 2
- a formal 'Have we met before?' (as you may have heard on the previous page.)
But during the war, they would often say:
"Ken 't zijn dat ik U kan?" - hear
- showing the usually low level of education of the collaborators.
