ENG Joke- Ponderings

- "I am" is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that "I do" is the longest sentence?
說明: "I do" 是婚禮時新郎新娘所說的「我願意」,寫笑話的人影射說出「我願意」是一件很難很難的事...

- If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, doesn't it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, and drycleaners depressed?
  • disbar v. 取消律師資格
  • clergymen n. 牧師教士一類的神職人員
  • defrock v. 除去神職
  • denote v. 表示、預示
  • derange v. 瘋狂的
  • depose v. 罷免

- Why is it that if someone tells you that there are one billion stars in the universe you will believe them, but if they tell you a wall has wet paint you will have to touch it to be sure?

- If you take an Oriental person and spin him around several times, does he become disoriented?

- If people from Poland are called "Poles," why aren't people from Holland called "Holes?"

- If a person with multiple personalities threatens suicide, is that considered a hostage situation?

- Just think how much deeper the ocean would be if sponges didn't live there.

- If a cow laughed, would milk come out her nose?
