Baby Blague #7

Comment s’appelle un chien qui vend des médicaments ? (What do you call a dog who sells medicine?)

Un pharmachien ! (A pharma-dog!)

The punchline of this joke works better in French as the French word for a ‘pharmacist’ (or ‘chemist’) is ‘pharmacien’. Therefore, a dog, which is translated as ‘chien’ in French, who sells medicine like a pharmacist is a ‘pharmaCHIEN’ in French!


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.
