esl jokes

Postby nikita » Thu Oct 07, 2004 6:42 pm

Hello,

Here is a little joke with the Present Simple Tense.

Mum, does God go to the bathroom?
> No, son, why do you ask?
Well, every morning dad goes to the bathroom, knocks on the door and shouts, "Oh, God! Are you still in there?"

Have a nice day!

Hi!

Here is a new joke for you. At least I hope it is new.

If a train stops at a train station and a bus stops at a bus station, what happens at a workstation?

tense joke

Postby tense » Sat Oct 23, 2004 11:05 pm

An English teacher spent a lot of time marking grammatical errors in her students' written work. She wasn't sure how much impact she was having until one overly busy day when she sat at her desk rubbing her temples a student asked, "What's the matter, Mrs. Sheridan?"

"Tense," she replied, describing her emotional state.

After a slight pause the student tried again, "What was the matter? What will be the matter? What has been the matter? What might have been the matter... ?"

short answers

Postby nikita » Tue Nov 23, 2004 12:14 am

Hello,

I haven't posted anything for a long time. Sorry guys. Here is a joke for you which illustrates the use of short answers in English. Actually, there is a very similar joke in Grapevine course, but I failed to find it today. So, here is another version for you.

Joke
----------------------------------------
Judge: You have been convicted of burglary. Have you anything to say before I pass sentence?
Accused: As the Lord is my judge, I am not guilty. I did not do it.
Judge: He is not. I am. You are. You did. Five years.
----------------------------------------

Have a nice day,

mad

Postby nikita » Tue Dec 14, 2004 1:22 pm

And here is one more joke.

One farmer says to another farmer that he had to shoot one of his cows?
"Was it mad?" asks the other farmer.
The farmer replies "Well it wasn't very happy about it".

to be mad at sb = to be very angry with sb

A cool phrase from Josh Billings:

A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself.

Have a nice day!
