Fun Word Play Jokes
Yogi and Boo Boo
Fun with words
Often I get taken in by jokes that are designed to make you either get a wrong answer to a question or by jokes that make me say something stupid about myself.
For instance the question below was once asked of me.
If the plural of Hippopotamus is hippopotami
What is the plural of whatafoolamus?
Whatafoolami (what a fool am I)
Being honest I was a bit of a fool for actually being taken in by it.
Robert: "what's the difference between a cheese Sandwich and a Matta boo boo,
Jenny "What's a matta boo boo"
Robert "Nothing Yogi, I'm ok"
I will let you work that one out for yourself.
Then we come to the pretend tongue twister
Can you say Polish it behind the door 3 times as fast as you can?
Try it and you will find that Polly has left a disgusting message for you behind the door.
Designed to make you say a naughty word.
This is one of my favourites
A Spanish Mix up
A Latino man who spoke no English went into an American department store to buy socks. He found his way to the Men's Wear department where a young lady offered to help him.
"Quiero calcetines" said the man.
"I don't speak Spanish, but we have some very nice suits over here." said the salesgirl.
"No, no quiero trajes. Quiero calcetines." said the man.
"Well, these shirts are on sale this week." declared the salesgirl.
"No, no quiero camisas. Quiero calcetines." repeated the man.
"I still don't know what you're trying to say. We have some fine pants on this rack." offered the salesgirl.
"No, no quiero pantalones. Quiero calcetines." insisted the man.
"These sweaters are top quality." the salesgirl probed.
"No, no quiero sueter. Quiero calcetines." said the man.
"Our undershirts are over here." fumbled the salesgirl, beginning to lose patience.
"No, no quiero camisetas. Quiero calcetines." the man repeated.
As they passed the underwear counter, the man spotted a display of socks and happily grabbed a pair. Holding them up he proclaimed "Eso sí que es!."
"Well, if you could spell it, why didn't you do that in the beginning?" asked the exasperated salesgirl.
"Eso sí que es!" Meaning "That is what it is!"
