By the way, the alleged inability and / or unwillingness of the French people to speak English is not true.
In the last post I relayed a traffic joke ("Straßenunterhaltung"), so here's a traffic sign in France which German-speaking people might find funny:
The actual theme for today's post is: jokes which require knowing multiple languages to be funny (and even then it's questionable).
This kind of loose or awkward connection between topics is called a "donkey's bridge" ("aasinsilta") in Finnish. The term is clearly adopted from German ("Eselsbrücke"), but it means something different in German: "a clever method used to remember something".
So here's a joke from my husband:
"What's the slogan for French low-carb enthusiasts? No pain, no gain."
(Pain = bread in French.)
And one from me:
"Penis size is not normally distributed. There is a long tail."
("Tail" in German, "Schwanz", is a slang word for penis.)
I tried to think how to end this post smoothly, but I couldn't come up with anything. What's the word for a clumsy or an awkward ending?
