Baby Blague #15

Quel est le jeu préféré des philosophes ? (What is a philosopher’s favourite game?)

Des cartes! (Cards!)

Philosophers could really like cards for all we know. However, the punchline for this joke works because “Des cartes” is homonymous with the famous French philosopher Descartes. He was also a prominent physicist and mathematician (ever heard of a cartesian plane?).

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.
