Day 25: Speak French.

on October 25, 2012 in 31 Days of Jokes with 7 comments by

My friend Beth from Red and Honey gave me today’s joke. Her blog is adorbs, you should see it. She’s Canadian, so she’s got that going for her. Also, her joke involves knowing how to count to five in French. So if you don’t know how to do that, google that first.

Then proceed to Beth’s very funny joke. Or, at least, my poor retelling of Beth’s funny joke.

. . . . .

. . . . .

Two cats were in a boat race.

The American cat was named “One Two Three Cat.”

The Canadian cat was named “Un Deux Trois Cat.”

Do you know which cat won the race?

The American cat.

Because Un Deux Trois Cat Sank.

. . . . .

Get it?

    Yay Annie! I love that joke. My daughter learned it when we spent 4 months in Canada in missions training. And the funniest part about it was when we told the joke to my hubby and he didn’t get it and even after all of our attempts to explain it he still didn’t get it. That made us laugh more than anything! : ) Good memories… good memories. ; )

    I took French in high school and had to repeat this one to myself until it finally “sank” in. Ethan’s not up yet, but I’ll have some explaining to do with this one.

    From the failure of a French student who always wanted to speak it so eloquently…best joke so far. My poor French teacher in high school told me to quit trying…the southern accent ruined the beautiful French.

    Those couple weeks of French class paid off when I laughed at this joke :)
