Blagues Carambar #4 – French Joke

blague carambar #4

Quel super héros donne le plus vite l’heure ?

Speed heure man !

This joke takes its punchline from the words ‘speed’ and ‘heure’, which, put together, sound like ‘spider’, pronounced with a French accent. Therefore, when said aloud, it becomes clear that the superhero who is the quickest at telling the time is ‘spiderman’.

Les blagues carambar

The Carambar is a quintessentially French sweet. This chewy caramel candy has almost become a national image of France. In 1961 Carambar began to include jokes so that each sweet came with a riddle inside. These have now become particularly famous for their poor quality. The French have even created the expression ‘les blagues Carambar’ to refer to a bad or childish joke! However they still make the French laugh.

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

Do not worry: we have come up with our own ones so that they will not be all that bad! We have decided to explore French jokes a little more and have in fact 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.

“As I got to know the children I was working with- know what they liked and disliked, their hobbies and their sense of humour- working with them and teaching English in France became really enjoyable.”
