but here is a joke for you : what do you call someone who speaks 2 languages ? bilingual. what do you call someone who speaks 3 languages ? trilingual. what do you call someone who speaks many languages ? what do you call someone who speaks many languages ? polyglot.
and what do you call someone who only speaks one language ? an American.
My mother and ex-wife share a birthday. I once wrote them a happy birthday email addressed to “My mother and lover” and filled it with what I thought were lovely compliments that applied to both of them.
It didn’t help that I accidentally put my wife’s name in the cc area, but she thought I was being disgusting to call my mother my lover. And when my mother realised I was also addressing my wife, she said the things I wrote were “generic crap”. Eventually, both my and my wife’s extended families were getting cc’ed in.
It turned out well in the end though because it made me remember that I had only proposed to her by accident anyway.
Okay that first one is tenuous as fuck. I had no idea what the confusion was meant to be until I read the comments, but apparently you have to misread the card and assume it’s for one person.
A joke is shit if the joke only exists because the teller was dumb as shit and misunderstood something. It’s like comedians who say ‘oh, I went to buy a vacuum cleaner and the salesman offered me a vacuum cleaner holder (yeah, I’m looking at you Rhod Gilbert, you one note fuck), what’s with that’, and you think ‘it’s for holding vacuums, you twat, why don’t you do some research’.
#28 > no, it’s because people who don’t know that fiancee is feminine read it to mean that the brother is the fiance at the same time (i.e. engaged to his sister)… I don’t blame you for not getting it…
