Joke(s)

#1 Postby Vamprilla » Thu Nov 10, 2005 7:00 pm

Ok, so we just had a Canadian join the board and I have to tell a canadian joke! So no one thinks i'm dising, Ilove Canada!

Ok, so France, Italy, and Spain were trying to think of a name to call the land they had found (Canada before it had a name). They couldn't agree on a name so they decided to draw letters out of a hat. The letters they drew out were as follows (in order):
C-eh
N-eh
D-eh

Anyone doesn't get it, ask.

Any one else have any other jokes?

I don't get it... :oops:
or maybe i do, but don't think it funny...

I think it's quite funny that when you pronounce "Canada" a bit stretched, it sounds like German for "Nobody there!" or "Nobody here?" :lol:
No one said it would be easy.

lol. Ok, Canadians say "eh" instead of "huh" or "what". "Eh" is in the place of every "A" in Canada because "eh" sounds close to"a".

C - eh
N - eh
D- eh

sound that out and you spell canada : c-a-n-a-d-a (i.e. the "eh" is pronounced like the letter A).

I think it was funny because I say "eh" in conversation all the time.

I notice that UK men say "yeah" a lot, for example: "You have a good night, yeah." :wink:

"Yeah" is in place of "alright" or "ok" for the Brits (who are also very cool).

I got that part before, didn't think it to be funny...

Maybe i was just missing that part:

As far as I know, "yeah" just means "yes", even here in England

SO when a UK guy says,

"Have a great night, yeah." they are saying "have a great night, yes."

:?: :?

Beats me, and I'm by no means British, but I use 'yeah' in place of 'ok' quite frequently.
So if nothing else, it's a Megan thing :D

To say "Have a good night yeah" is a question. It means: "Have a good night, yes?" In other words "Have a good night, understand?"
