The grandest dream of the Bulgarian Government: One fine morning the people disappear and only the state budget remains.

In 2008 everyone on Sofia Underground stared at whoever tried to surf the Internet on their mobile phones.

In 2018 everyone on Sofia Underground stared at whoever held a newspaper in their hands.

In 2028 everyone on Sofia Underground will be starring at whoever doesn't scratch the numbers of a get-rich-quick lottery ticket.

 


 

Some reporters ask Tsvetan Tsvetanov: "Sir, is it true that everyone in Bulgaria can get arrested? Aren't there any untouchables?"

"No, there aren't," replies Tsvetanov: "I am ready to handcuff myself if Prime Minister Boyko Borisov so wishes."

 


 

On the morning after an election, the chief of the election staff approaches the prime minister: "Sir, I have some good news and some bad news."

"What is the bad news?"

"The bad news is that your opponents have garnered 72 percent of the vote."

"And the good news?"

"The good news is that you get 89 percent of the vote."
