Best Memes of Summer So Far Thanks to Daily Dose of the Average Dalmatian

Daniela Rogulj

June 24, 2019 – Summer officially kicked off on June 21st, though we’ve been feeling it in Dalmatia since the beginning of June. And grateful, we are, that the summer is finally here after an unusually chilly (and rainy) May. 

However, jumping from one weather extreme to the next seems to have taken its toll on those of us in Dalmatia, that is, if the hit satirical Facebook Page Daily Dose of the Average Dalmatian (Dnevna doza prosječnog Dalmatinca) has anything to do with it. 

Maybe jumping from the biting bura to a 35 degree Celsius heatwave has messed with our heads, or perhaps it’s just part of our Dalmatian blood, but the summer has just begun, and we already have a world of Dalmatian humor to share. 

We knew that summer was officially here when this was spotted at the supermarket.

 But the water wasn’t quite warm enough to swim in yet…

Croatia’s lack of seasonal workers was clearly displayed when local chickens were used to take drink orders. 

And Dubrovnik taxi drivers quickly realized they needed to learn Chinese to survive.

Tourists went to great heights just to fit into the last parking spot at the beach.

And we witnessed Croatian innovation in Dugopolje…

Though it seems we’ve forgotten how to count…

Or correctly display traffic signals.

We discovered a new air conditioning system for cars on Pag.

And taped umbrellas to our backs to ensure the sun didn’t stop us from working. 

But we still can’t seem to get the traffic signs right. 

But summer didn’t really start until a visit from Moky, our beloved Mako shark, which made its way from Makarska to Primošten. 

We loved Moky so much, we even tried to imitate him. 

The foreign workers brought in needed some time to adapt to Dalmatian culture, and to realize that this leg of pršut isn’t a place for handbags. 

As June moved along, Pag struggled with spelling.

And our markets confused tomatoes and cucumbers. 

But Split’s latest tourist attraction allows you to dine next to garbage trucks. 

Fortunately, we know what it takes to attract tourists. 

Even if we don’t know how to spell. 

Welcome to summer in Dalmatia.

We set the trends. 

We work hard.

We have your back. 

You just make sure to follow the rules.
