Why did the melons have a wedding? Because they can elope? Why did the melons have a wedding? Because they can elope?

Why is this a joke? This is an extremely common joke in English. What is a cantaloupe? Well, a cantaloupe is a type of melon like watermelon. honeydew cantaloupe. It looks like this. But the word cantaloupe sounds like another word in English. What happens if you can't have a wedding? Or you decide not to have a big ceremony and you and your lover decide to run away maybe to a beautiful destination and there's only you two plus an official we call them an officiant who gets you married who marries you. What do we call this? We call this eloping. You elope? This means it's usually a surprise your family and friends don't know. And then you tell them later. Guess what? We eloped. So you didn't have a wedding? Huh? What's happening in this joke? We're talking about a melon cantaloupe and the verb elope? Well, unfortunately, these poor melons can't elope. So what's the opposite? They have to have a wedding. So the melons cantaloupe.

very silly. All right. Let's go to our third joke. Dad, I'm hungry. Hi, hungry. I'm Dad. Dad, I'm hungry. Hi, hungry. I'm dad. This joke makes every kid roll their eyes and say, dad.

Let's talk about why it's funny. Well, you can introduce yourself with this same sentence construction. I'm Vanessa. Nice to meet you. I'm Dan. Nice to meet you. I'm plus your name. But is that what's happening here in this sentence? I'm hungry. Hungry.

is not your name. You're trying to tell your dad that you want food, but he's pretending that hungry is your name. My dad used to say this all the time. And I think every time I did that and said, Ah, dad, no, I want food. You can use this in a a lot of situations. You might say, Dad, I'm tired. Hi tired, dad. I'm thirsty. Hi, thirsty. It's so annoying for kids, but also a little bit silly. Alright, let's go to our next joke. How was your camping trip? It was intense. How was your camping trip? It was intense. Why is this joke funny? Some people would say it's not funny. But why is this a joke? Well, the word intense means difficult or serious. Why would your camping trip be intense? Maybe it rained the whole time. Or maybe you had to hike a long way to get to your campsite. This is very difficult. It's kind of a serious camping trip. But what does that word sound like in tents? Where do you sleep when you go camping? Well, you sleep in a sleeping bag in a tent.

So let's make it plural. We slept in tents. Oh, what's that sound like? intense? intense.


very silly. Do Do you see how these jokes are a play on words? We have one word intense, difficult, serious. That sounds like another word in a tent or intense. And that's why they're silly. So it does take another level of understanding for vocabulary or grammar or pronunciation to understand why it's funny, or why someone might say, haha, maybe they don't think it's hilarious, but they understand that it's supposed to be a joke. And now you do too. Alright, these first four were the most common type of puns in English. But let's talk about some others that will help you to level up your vocabulary. Oh, I pulled a muscle digging for gold. But it's just a minor injury.


Oh, I pulled a muscle digging for gold. But it's just a minor injury. Let's talk about this first phrase, I l pulled a muscle. What's that mean? Usually, to break a bone is very serious. And to pull a muscle is a little less serious. Maybe your muscle feels strained or pulled and it's uncomfortable and maybe you need to stop for the day you need to rest maybe put some ice on it. It's not a very serious injury. Usually you can recover you know, relatively quickly. But what is happening in the rest of this joke. I pulled a muscle digging for gold.


It was a minor injury. This phrase a minor injury is a common phrase we use for an injury. So getting hurt. That's not so serious. It's not a major injury. A major injury injury. If I can say that correctly, a major injury would be be maybe breaking a bone. Okay, that's that's a little more serious. But a minor injury is just your muscles stretched 2021. And after some ice and rest it feels better. But what does this word minor sound like? What do you call someone who digs for gold? Or maybe they go into a mine and they're digging for coal or or other type of minerals ? They are a minor.


So notice how the spelling is slightly different. But that's the joke here. The word minor injury, this common phrase and to be a minor. They sound very similar. Alright, let's go to our next joke. A  A new lego store just opened people lined up for blocks. A new new lego store just opened people lined up for blocks. Do you know what Legos are? This is a Lego creation that my my son made. My son is obsessed with Legos. They are these types of blocks. These are bigger Legos. We actually call these duplos. But it's the same idea. And you can make lots of of creations with them. I think he made a forklift with a digger bucket and I to watch you

that with two sets of wheels, very cool. He always comes up with cool creations. But Legos are a kind of block. Well, there is is another meaning for the word block. A block is an American expression used to describe a set of streets. We usually use this when we're giving directions to someone. So you might say go to blocks and turn right. That means you need to pass two streets and then turn right this is especially


Common when you are living somewhere that has kind of an organized structure. So for example, New York City is quite organized, there's, you know, So it's easy to see one city block, another city block, another city block, we can imagine that kind of structure. Most cities are not organized that way in the US. So where I live is not organized that way. But I still would use this phrase, a block to give general directions, we live two blocks away from the park. Okay, this gives kind of a general idea about how far away we live from the park. So let's take a look at this joke and why it's funny. people lined up for blocks. So the original meaning is that they lined up for a long distance, it covered many city blocks. Maybe they were lined up for one kilometer. Okay, they were lined up for blocks. But also why are they lining up? 

They want Lego blocks. So they lined up for what reason for blocks to get Lego blocks. Haha. So would you like to use both of these expressions blocks together? You might say, people lined up for blocks to buy blocks. so silly. Alright, let's go to our next joke. My friend David had his ID stolen. Now he's just Dave, my my friend David had his ID stolen. Now he's just Dave, do you know what an ID is? Id stands for identification. And usually this is is your driver's license, maybe a passport. It's something official, usually from the government or your school that shows that you are a legitimate person. Maybe that you're a legitimate students or that you can officially drive a car like a driver's license, this is your ID. So So a lot of places will ask for your ID. Maybe if you need to reserve a place a concert ticket or something like this, they might ask for your ID. And this shows you are who you say you are. But what's happening in this joke. When I say that my friend David had his ID stolen, someone stole his driver's license. Not good. But now, his name is Dave.

Look at the end of his name. What are the two letters at the end of his name? Id?

Well, a common, shortened form of the name David is Dave. So So a lot of people whose names are David. They'll say hey, I'm Dave. They go by Dave. It's a shortened version of their name. For example, my husband Dan, his real name is Daniel. But he goes by Dan. This is the shortened version of his name kind of like a nickname. So unfortunately, my friend David had his ID stolen. And now he had to change his name. His name is Dave. Haha. Alright, let's go to our next joke. If your man doesn't appreciate fruit puns, let that man go 2. What does it mean to let that man go? Usually this means to break up with someone. So just forget about your boyfriend. Let him go. Let him go off into the world and you're better off without him. 

Let that man go. But what does this look like? Look at the last two words here. Hmm, this is look like a fruit to you. Mango. This is a mango. And is a very silly pun. Let that man go. This is kind of a common phrase. Or mango is a fruit. So if your boyfriend does not like puns, especially puns about fruit, forget about him. Let that man go. Oh, all right.

Was it so beautiful? so touching that you cried? I have

but what about this spelling? That doesn't look like a tear t e AR Why is it spelled like that and why is the cake crying? Well, we need to talk about what is a tiered cake. This is a tiered cake. at a wedding. It's very common to have a cake layered up like this a layered cake. This is most common at a wedding. You would never see this at a birthday party because it's very expensive. It's very fancy. Usually this type of
