Baby Blague #11

Quel est le sport préféré des insectes ? (What is an insect’s favourite sport?)

Le criquet ! (Cricket!)

This joke, which works in both languages, plays upon the double meaning of the word “cricket”! Although less popular in France, “cricket” is a traditional English sport as well as a type of insect!

However, you should note that in French, the sport is actually spelt the same way as in English: “le cricket”!

Les Baby Blagues

Baby blagues are a collection of jokes chosen by Babylangues. The jokes are inspired by Les Blagues Carambar – jokes traditionally found in the wrappers of French Carambar sweets. These have now become particularly famous as bad, childish jokes. However they still make the French laugh!

This is an example of a Baby blague: Ce matin, j’ai voulu faire une blague sur le Super U, mais elle n’a pas Supermarché !

Not to worry: we have come up with our own ones that are easy to understand, so that they will not be all that bad! We have decided to explore French jokes a little more and found that they are often orientated around a product of language. So, each joke will not only brighten your day but also improve your understanding of the French language.
