    • Whatsofunny SHE TOLD ME MY NEW CELLPHONE LOOKED SWEET SO SHE BIT MY HONEY PHONE. WHEN I TRIED TO STOP HER SHE HIT MY FUNNY BONE What’s so funny about this? Three-word or more spoonerisms are hard to find or create. I was lucky to come up with this one. It is a bit of a stretch, meaning you have to stretch your imagination and language knowledge to understand it, but I think it does work. The set-up is pretty easy and straight forward. Two people are talking about their new cell phones. This is a common conversation topic these days, because people constantly seem to be upgrading their existing phones, that is, getting new, improved models. Cell phone manufacturers are always trying to get an edge on the competition and come up with something new and unique. In this joke the new cell phone appears to be sweet and honey flavored. At first, we might think that the woman was only using a metaphor when she described the cellphone as sweet. In this sense it just means nice looking, perhaps easy to use. But in the next sentence we learn that the phone was literally sweet because it was coated with honey, which is why she bit it. But the guy did not appreciate this. He didn’t want someone putting their saliva on his new sweet cellphone, nor did he want her to actually remove some of phone with her teeth. But, maybe she studies aikido or some other martial art, because she really wanted to eat this phone. So much so, that when the guy tried to stop her, she used her skills to hit him on his funny bone. This 2-word phrase refers to a part of your elbow. It’s not really a bone but a nerve ending called the ulna nerve. When someone hits the nerve and it rubs up against a bone in your arm called the humerus, spelled h-u-m-e-r-u-s, it produces a strange buzzing sensation. It doesn’t tickle and it’s not funny. If you smash it hard enough it will hurt. It’s called the funny bone because of its proximity, or nearness to the humerus bone which is a homonym of humorous, h-u-m-o-r-o-u-s, meaning funny. And that’s why you can spoonerize BIT MY HONEY PHONE to HIT MY FUNNY BONE. And THAT’s futzo wunny, I mean what’s so funny.
