    • Whatsofunny ENGLAND HAS NO KIDNEY BANK, BUT IT DOES HAVE A LIVERPOOL. What’s so funny about this? I know it’s a little presumptuous of me to make a pun at the expense of England and English locations. After all, I’m a US citizen, speaking English as a second language, so how dare I take liberties with the mother of both the English language and geography? No problem. Piece of cake. Actually, these puns have probably already been done hundreds if not thousands of times, yet there is something quite modern about the context. Let’s get to it. The first thing we learn is that England has a no kidney bank. That’s too bad; they should. We already know that Brits have a thing for internal organs, especially kidneys. One of their most popular types of pub grub, or bar food, is steak and kidney pie. So with no kidney bank, where do they go to stock up on kidneys when their favourite pub runs out? Or where can they deposit their own kidneys? It’s not uncommon to donate a kidney since we do have two of them and we can live with only one. Actually that’s exactly what a kidney bank is, though the kidneys are not usually donated voluntarily. Most come from accident victims who have agreed to have their organs “harvested” if they die accidentally. If someone has a kidney disease, they can potentially get a replacement from a kidney bank. OK, so there is no central kidney bank, but we learn that the Brits are more generous with their livers than with their kidneys. England does have a Liverpool. A “pool” can mean a place to go swimming, and there is an American version of billiards called “pool”, but the word can also have the same sense as “bank”. As a verb, we say people can pool their resources, that is, hold them collectively in one place, much as with a bank. A car pool, for example, can be when 3 or 4 people use one car collectively to get someplace, rather than taking their individual cars; in the army the motor pool is where all the vehicles are kept and soldiers can just take the ones they need. So, in theory, a Liverpool should be the same as a kidney bank. Someplace you can go to get an extra liver, if yours stops functioning. BUT in reality, Liverpool is just the name of a major city and seaport that also happens to be the birthplace of the Beatles. BTW in the US kidney-shaped swimming pools are very popular with Hollywood millionaires. But I can’t see Paul McCartney or Ringo in a Liver pool, can you? And THAT’s what’s so funny!
