French Joke #13

Quel est le point commun entre un professeur et un thermomètre ?

On tremble quand ils marquent zéro !

A teacher and a thermometer are similar in that we want to avoid that they give a score or reading of zero. When a teacher gives this mark, it means that the work handed in was really badly done, and when the thermometer gives a temperature of zero it means that the weather is bitterly cold!

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.
