What the Fins Think of Elephants

I read this joke in Bad Samaritans. It is a good example of how you can find a joke funny because you learn something rather than because it reinforces your knowledge. Here is my telling:

A German, Frenchman, American, and Fin are asked to write a book about elephants. The German, being very thorough, writes a 7-volume treatise titled, “Everything Known About Elephants.” The Frenchman, being heavily influenced by Sartre, writes, “Elephants and Nothingness.” The American, having no culture at all, writes, “101 Ways to Make a Killing with Elephants.” And the Fin writes, “What Elephants Think of the Fins.”

Finland, Finland, Finland! The country where I want to be!
