Jessica - even I got this one about the snake. Cobra is the pun, and it means 1) a kind of snake 2) from cobrar, to charge or get paid.

I am sorry if I have misinterpreted this statement, but you may have made a mistake that is common even among native English speakers. A poisonous snake would be one that was dangerous to, for example, touch or eat, because it would secrete a toxin onto its body in some fashion, or perhaps inside its body, to make it inedible. A venomous snake, on the other hand, would be one which carried the toxin in a sac which was distributed through the fangs (or some other method such as spitting) to the prey.

So, I believe you may have meant venomous instead of poisonous, since I know of no poisonous snakes (only venomous ones). I hope I have helped.

@Tarential: Oh, I didn't know there was a difference between those words. There's only one in Spanish.
Thank you.


@Jessica: Make a little effort in making connections on words that are similar to conjugated verbs. Read the sentences aloud and then you can check with your dictionaries, as Library Lady did.
Also, note that "ll" sounds like "y", and "v" sounds like "b".

Muy buenos todos los que habéis puesto.

Y ya puestos, viejas adivinanzas, muy fáciles para los hispanos, pero quizá no tanto para los anglosajones que empiezan.

Oro parece, plata no es, si quieres que te lo diga, espera.


Este banco está ocupado por un padre y por un hijo, el padre se llama Juan, y el hijo ya te lo he dicho.


Y lo es, y lo es... y no me lo aciertas en un mes.

Y hablando de "cobras" y serpientes. Un marica en un bar se ha tomado unas tapitas y una cerveza y poniendo los euros pertinentes en la barra le dice al barman (también marica) "Cobra". A lo que el barman contesta: "¡Víbora!"

Muy bueno, Sosia. Me ha recordado (aunque a lo mejor no tiene nada que ver) a aquello de:
"Pues nada, nada... y el que nada no se ahoga..., y el que no se ahoga, flota..., y una flota es una escuadra..., y con una escuadra y un cartabón puedes dibujar..."

He encontrado esta otra versión:
El que nada no se ahoga.
El que no se ahoga, flota.
Flota es una escuadra.
Cuadra es donde se guarda un bicho.
Ese bicho puede ser un toro.
Toro est
á en Zamora.
Zamora es un futbolista.
"Lista" es una calle de Madrid.
Madrid es la capital de Espa
ña.
Espa
ña es una nación.
"Naci
ón" es un diario de la Habana.
La Habana es la capital de Cuba.
Esa cuba tiene vino.
Y ese vino emborracha.
