Here's a bilingual Spanish joke to lighten up your day..

This joke is outside my Spanish teacher's door, and I find it hysterical..

What if Soy Milk was milk trying to introduce itself in Spanish? Haha.

If you have any bilingual Spanish jokes, feel free to leave it in the comment section. . EDIT: Thank you all so much for the feedback. I've only started embracing the Duolingo community for a week or two (I mainly used the app for a month or two), and i'm looking forward to reading every single comment! Gracias mi amigos! Ustedes son muy simpatico y gracioso! :)

An Englishman went to Spain on a fishing trip. He hired a Spanish guide to help him find the best fishing spots. Since the Englishman was learning Spanish, he asked the guide to speak to him in Spanish and to correct any mistakes of usage. They were hiking on a mountain trail when a very large, purple and blue fly crossed their path. The Englishmen pointed at the insect with his fishing rod, and said, "Mira el mosca!" The guide, sensing a teaching opportunity, replied, "No, senor, 'la mosca'... es feminina."

The Englishman looked at him, then back at the fly, and then said, "Good heavens... you must have incredibly good eyesight."

I just thought of one, but it's probably not funny.

"soy" means "I am " in Spanish and "bean" means "woman" or "a woman" in Irish, so what does "soybean" mean?

Actually, "I am a woman" is "is bean me" (accent over the "e" in "me") in Irish and "I am a woman in Spanish is yo soy una mujer".
It's probably not funny.

Anyway, I've learned the words "witzig" and "gracioso". I can't think of anymore jokes, except for this one time when I was in the post office and it was June. I had a card to pick up a parcel at the counter. On the card it had "Au" and I was thinking it was the abbreviation for August and was thinking "It's June, not August". Then I realized it was the French word "au". I told the clerk how I thought it was the abbreviation for August, till I realized it was French and she laughed.

...aber ich glaube man muss sich die Irischen und Spanischen Sprachen mächtig sein om es besser zu verstehen.

Einer Sprache mächtig sein: Knowing a language, being well versed in a language "~ Having the language as a power~"

Not sure why I put "sich" in there though.

I often wonder why a "sich" seems to be randomly placed in sentences that make more sense to me without it. I'm sure there is a reason, but sometimes, I can't figure it out, even going through all the different possibilities of which I am aware.

Actually it's pronounced like 'ban' so that joke doesn't work so well (nice try though! :P) However it does cause some confusion for people in Ireland who speak both Irish and English because when there is a sémhú on the b it sounds like van resulting in conversations as follows: Séamus - D'fhág mé an van dearg síos ar an mbóthair Bláithnid - Nach é 'an bhean RUA' atá i gceist agat? Cén fáth ar fhág tú í síos ar an mbóthair?! Séamus - No..táim cinnte gur van dearg í....sure sin an áit a fhágaim í i gcónaí? Bláithnid - ?!! bean ? ar an mbóthair?? cé hí ??? cad é saol

A Spanish tourist walks into a clothing store. The shopkeepers only speak English, so after asking the tourist what he is looking for, they show him around the store to see what catches his fancy. Not the shirts...not the belts....they stop at the sock display. "Eso si que es!" exclaims the man. "Well, why didn't you say so in the first place?" ask the shop keepers.
