    • Whatsofunny WHAT DO YOU CALL A DINOSAUR WITH AN EXTENSIVE VOCABULARY? A THESAURUS. What’s so funny about this? When I read this joke the first thing that crossed my mind was a question: How DO they name dinosaurs? That’s the thing about this day and age almost any factual question that occurs to you can be answered by going to google or some other internet search engine. The word dinosaur itself comes from Greek roots, from the words “deinos” meaning “terrible” and “sauros,” which means “lizard.” It reminds me that Sinclair gasoline, which no longer exists as a brand, used to have a mascot, or logo, of Dino the Dinosaur. Note the change in pronunciation. Some obvious examples of dinosaurs are Tyrannasaurus Rex and Brachiosaurus, the first one means a “tyrant king of the lizards”; the second one means “lizard whose arms are longer than its legs”. They would take some characteristic of the dinosaur and add “saurus” or a similar suffix to come up with the name. In the joke we’re faced with the job giving a name to a smarty pants dinosaur who has a large, extensive vocabulary. In this case we have a Greek root homonym in the word “tresauros”, meaning treasure or storehouse. This was the word which eventually became “thesaurus”, a dictionary of synonyms. In all of these words, what we have in English is the Greek root put though a Latin filter, thus the “os” has been changed to “us”, and an H has been added to the T. Of course, the real joke is that a thesaurus does sound exactly like it could be a dinosaur. Let’s see, since we’re borrowing words from Greek and Latin, if we use the French word for tea THÈ, spelled t-h-e, a thesaurus could be a Giant Lizard who Sips Tea. And THAT’s what’s so funny!

    • Whatsofunny NEVER TRUST AN ATOM. THEY MAKE UP EVERYTHING. What’s so funny about this? If you’re only listening to this joke then you might think I’m talking about some guy named Adam, A-d-a-m, as in the husband of Eve. In fact Eve might even agree with the joke, but if she couldn’t trust Adam, then who was there left for her to trust? But whatever may be true about the trustworthiness of men named Adam, they are not the subject of this joke. The actual subject is a homonym of Adam, spelled a-t-o-m, yet still pronounced atom. Atoms have been called the building blocks of the universe. Scientists once believed that an atom was the smallest unit in the universe. They said, all matter was composed of atoms. This was the case until Einstein and others came along showing that an atom could be split into at least three sub-components, namely, electrons, protons and neutrons. The result of splitting some of these atoms was the atomic bomb. Then some other guys discovered that these atomic particles could not only be split, but they could also be fused, that is, smashed together. This resulted in an even more powerful explosive, the hydrogen bomb. Later on, still other scientists discovered that there were even smaller sub atomic particles that composed electrons protons and neutrons. I’m sure we haven’t reached the end yet, but we might have, because these teeny, teeny particles can’t even be called matter, they’re really tiny bits of energy. Remember it was Einstein who proved that matter and energy were the same. As with everything else in the universe these atomic particles never stop moving, so it’s never been possible to “catch” and stop one to actually see it. Anyway, this is supposed to be a joke, not a physics lecture, so let’s jump back to atoms. If we agree that all elements are made up of different combinations of atoms, then what the joke says is true, atoms make up everything. But then why can’t we trust them? It’s because the expression to “make something up” means “to lie”, to “fabricate, a story.” So if I made up this whole story about atoms, then I’m lying, .and you can’t trust me. But since I said that you can’t trust atoms, then that means you can trust atoms, or can you? And THAT’s what’s so funny!

    • Whatsofunny MY GIRLFRIEND GOT FIRED FROM THE HOT DOG STAND FOR PUTTING HER HAIR IN A BUN. What’s so funny about this? This short little one-liner is loaded with cultural information that most Americans take so much for granted that most will not even realize it. Take the concept of a “girlfriend”. In many parts of the world unmarried males and females are kept apart for a variety of reasons, social and religious. Even in the west, 100 years ago, contact was restricted and when teenagers of both sexes did get together, they were supposed to be chaperoned, or accompanied by a married adult. When a boy and girl were friends the two words were written separately and there weren’t any sexual implications. All that is ancient history in the west and the two words are now written together and they mean that they are probably intimate; same for boyfriend. Now, what the heck is a hot dog stand? Or a hot dog, for that matter? I’m sure you know it’s a small, short sausage that Americans eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Just kidding. They were introduced by German immigrants at the end of the 19th century and had various names including “frankfurter “(indicating the origin was Frankfurt), or “wiener,” also “weenie” (indicating the origin as Vienna). But after two world wars fighting Germans, the term “hot dog” came into use. BTW when the US was angry about something that France was doing, a Congressman wanted to change the name “french fries” to “freedom fries” – thankfully, that never happened. Let’s get back to hot dogs. They are frequently sold out of small shacks and even out of little trucks. These are known as “hot dog stands.” Of course it’s not the dogs that stand erect it’s the one or two people inside that stand and they have to do the standing, all day long. I’m sure there’s no connection, but the word “dogs” is also a slang term for feet. When people have to stand all day long, they get tired, sore feet. They might say that their “dogs are barking”. Anyway, back to the 19th century. Sausages were nothing new to Americans, but it was the German guy who thought it would be smart to put a sausage on a soft white bun and top it off with mustard, who was the genius that invented the hot dog. Pretty soon people were adding ketchup, onions, relish, sauerkraut, potatoes, and all kinds of even more esoteric toppings. Needless to say, you want the hot dog guy or girl who works at the stand to have clean hands and you certainly wouldn’t want to find a hair in your hot dog roll, or bun. But is that what happened in the joke? Did my girlfriend insert one of her gorgeous red hairs into a hot dog bun? Or did she just pull her hair up into a knot that also happens to be called a bun? We’ll never know because she got canned; just as well, her dogs were always barking at the end of the day anyway. And THAT’s what’s so funny!
