The object of study in the article are ethnic jokes in Bulgaria that target only two ethnic minority groups: Armenians and Gypsies. The standard opposition stupid versus canny in ethnic humor does not extend to Bulgarian ethnic humor: the two groups are never seen as stupid. Bulgarian self-reflexive jokes that target negative national stereotypes are also studied.
