Some French jokes to improve your french. i found these at a site and decided to share it :)

1.Histoire de pomme de terre C’est l’histoire de deux pommes de terre. Une d’elles se fait écraser et l’autre s’écrie “Oh purée !”

<pre> (This is the story of two potatoes. One of them is run over and the other one says “Oh purée !”) So one little potato is run over by a car, and in response, the other says “oh my goodness / mashed potato.” Clever wordplay, and surely worth telling! </pre>

2.. Petit, rond, vert Qu’est-ce qui est petit, rond, vert, et qui monte et qui descend ?

Un petit pois dans un ascenseur !

(What is small, round, green and goes up and down?

A pea in an elevator!)

3.Toto est à l’école et demande s’il peut aller au WC. La maîtresse dit non.

Puis, elle demande à Toto, “Où est le plus grand fleuve du monde ?”

“Sous mon banc,” il répond.

(Toto is at school and asks if he can go to the toilet. His teacher says no.

Then, she asks Toto, “Where is the largest river in the world?”

“Under my bench,” he answers.)

4 Toto et le temps qui passe La maîtresse demande à Toto : “Quel est le futur de ‘je bâille’ ?”

“Je dors !”

(The teacher asks Toto: What is the future of “I yawn”?

“I sleep!”)

5.. Au Secours! Deux traducteurs à bord d’un navire conversent.

“Savez-vous nager ?” dit l’un d’entre eux.

“Non,” répond l’autre, “Mais je peux crier ‘Au secours!’ en neuf langues.”

(Two translators are talking aboard a ship.

“Do you know how to swim?” says one of them.

“No,” answers the other, “But I can shout ‘Help!’ in nine languages.”)

6.. Un citron et ses enfants Une maman citron dit à ses enfants : “Pour vivre longtemps, il ne faut jamais être pressé !”

(A mother lemon says to her children: “To live for a long time, you must never be pressed!”)

Hope you guys liked them ......There’s a whole world of French to be learned from native jokes.

Ranging from grammatical misunderstandings to pronunciation and double word meanings, French jokes are really rich in learning points.

Adding a funny punch line to your understanding of the language will not only give you: a bit of fun but also might teach you a thing or two along the way. thanks:)

Merci d'avoir essayé de me faire rire.

J'ai un ami russe et nous n'avons jamais été capables de comprendre les blagues des uns et des autres.

Beaucoup de ces blagues j'ai compris; ceux que j'appellerais "blagues de papa". D'autres dépendent des jeux de mots.

Par exemple, celui qui se termine par le punchline, "Oh purée!" Je n'avais aucune idée que c'est une expression d'exaspération commune en français, ni que cela signifie «purée de pommes de terre».

      Il n'y a pas de quoi. On est tous dans le même bateaux, comme ils disent, pour apprendre le français.

      French jokes are really useful to teach you about French homophones, for example, in English, THEIR THERE and THEY'RE all sound the same. There are words like this in French and French play-on-words jokes are really useful to teach us these. Merci becoup!

        @ KawaiiKiwi21 :) Merci beaucoup. -EAU sounds like English long -O sound. It is very important to learn to write all three letters. le chapeau, le bateau, le chateau, le gâteau, etc. E without an accent has a very different sound than -eau. De, je, le, me, ne, que, se, te, this is e caduc, also known as e muet. Bonne chance avec le français. :)

        They sound kind of weird from an english perspective, but the natives will probably like them
