Bilingual jokes

Post by Feba » Tue 06.17.2008 5:03 am

I was talking about this the other day, and came across http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bilingual_puns#Japanese

「A man buys a Nissan, and wants to name it, but can't decide if he should give it a male or female name. He asks his Japanese friend, who says, "Female." The man asks why, so the friend responds, "Each Nissan, she go."」

I found positively hilarious, so I was just curious what other ones are out there. I've noticed plenty of opportunities for puns (姑>しゅうとめ>シュウト メ>”Shoot me!"), but not much in terms of jokes (like "iEso si que es!")
