Why?
Don't complain to me that people kick you when you're down. It's your own fault for lying there

はは、意浮?ツいて面白いし
日本語の書き方や漢字の告ャの特徴の知識も身につくだろうし
日本語学習者さん達にとっても、きっと良い問題ですねー。

first base云々の話は↓のようなやりとりと似た感じの面白さを狙ってるんですよね?

灰という漢字を読める?
「はい」
じゃあ、なんと読む?
「いいえ、「なん」とは読みません」
そうじゃなくて、どのように読むかという意味です。
「さきほど「はい」と答えました」

Reminds me of 林蛋大

A primary school teacher was returning test papers. She kept calling, “Lin Danda! Lin Danda!” But none of the children came forward to collect the test paper.

The teacher eventually asked, “Is there anyone that hasn’t gotten the test paper? Please come to the front.”

One little boy uncomfortably approached the teacher and said to her, “Teacher, my name isn’t Lin Danda (林蛋大). I'm Chu Zhongtian (楚中天). :|"" ”

Then there's always the Simpsons version - "Not the pronoun, but a player with the unlikely name of Who, is on first."

He is thinking Abbott and Costello. Look at the names he gave the players, and what the possible readings are.

A: この球団は面白い奴がいっぱい。一塁は駄礼(だれ)、二塁は奈丹(なに)、三塁は和漢内(わかんない)…
C: おい、この球団の奴の名前を知ってる?
A: もちるん。
C: 一塁の名前は何?
A: 二塁の名前は奈丹。
C: 誰が二塁とは聞かないよ!
A: 駄礼が一塁だ。
C: 分かんない!
A: 和漢内は三塁だ。そいつについて話してないよ。
