Baby Blague #6 - French Joke
C’est quand le Retour du Jedi ? (When is the Return of the Jedi?)
Entre le mercredi et le vendredi ! (Between Wednesday and Friday!)
This “blague” is one for all the Star Wars fans out there! The Return of the Jedi occurs on the day between Wednesday and Friday, which is of course Thursday. In French, Thursday is translated as “jeudi”, which sounds very similar to Jedi!
The joke also draws on the face that the Return of the Jedi is the title of one of the Star Wars films!
Les Baby Blagues
Baby blagues are a collection of jokes that are chosen by us at 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.
