Puns

post a pun here




Did you hear about the guy whose whole left side was cut off? He's all right now.

I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me.

Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.

A bicycle can't stand on its own because it is two-tired.




if you don't know what a pun is....Puns

yTheir common name is "juegos de palabras", but each one has a different name. For instance:

Retruécano: usually the start with "no es lo mismo": no es lo mismo yo lo coloco y ella lo quita que yo loco, loco y ella loquita.

Calambur: the most famous (I think I mentioned it in another thread) is a Quevedo's calambur, of whom it is said that he had bet to tell the Queen that she was lame: entre el clavel y la rosa, su majestad escoja (es-coja). Another one very famous is: si el rey no muere, el reino muere.

Palíndromo which had already been mentioned here, such as: dábale arroz a la zorra el abad.

etc.

There are some spanish puns with "no es lo mismo"/it's not the same, but must of them are not for children.
Some "good" examples
No es lo mismo, los dolores de las piernas que las piernas de Dolores.
No es lo mismo, me río en el baño que me baño en el río

Saludos

The child being Jessica? Teens know a lot more than we give them credit for. And some grown-ups are still living in Neverland ...

Ah, Irmamar me ha hecho recordar el que decía: "Con los tragos del que suelo llamar yo néctar divino, y aquien otros llaman vino porque que nos vino del cielo..."
O algo así...
