    Tuesday, April 23rd 2013

Monday, April 22nd 2013

Thanks a lot
Skeleton had no body to go with him was very funny.
But, I couldn’t understand some answers in quiz.
Why the longest sentence is ‘I do’?
please teach me…..

Monday, April 22nd 2013

    When people get married, they are asked: “Do you take _____________ to be your husband/wife?” To answer, you have to say “I do.” This is a sentence.

    “Sentence” has a double meaning. If you are a criminal and go to jail, you have to serve “a sentence.” Your sentence can be 5 years, 10 years, etc. It’s a joke because of this double meaning: marriage can be like prison.

    I hope this helped!

    Wednesday, April 24th 2013

      sir, I think that double meaning words also know as double entendra.
      is it right

      Monday, May 6th 2013

      and now i’m just laughing after getting the explanation. But my friend did even hardly, not because of the joke, yet my belated catch-up. Does it funny too, Alex?

      Thursday, May 30th 2013

      oh,it’s the fucking greatest joke ever ! thanks alex.

      Wednesday, August 14th 2013

very amusing lesson. thanks Alex

Tuesday, April 23rd 2013

Thanks a lot,Alex,a interesting lesson

Tuesday, April 23rd 2013

It’s funny answers, but i didn’t understand the last answer?
where is the double meaning here!

& thanx Alex *_*

Tuesday, April 23rd 2013

Tuesday, April 23rd 2013

    Enjoy the weather! I haven’t been back to Poland in over 18 years.

    Tuesday, April 23rd 2013

      Nowadays Poland is changing but still many things need to be fixed. On the other hand, 18 years is a lot of time and I think that you will be positively surprised visiting us next time.

      Thursday, April 25th 2013

The best one was “a prison sentence” of course! :D

Tuesday, April 23rd 2013

I like it so so much

Tuesday, April 23rd 2013

“I really really recommend that you use these at a party if you want no friends”

Tuesday, April 23rd 2013

    They’re bad jokes, but I think some people will find them cute.

Tuesday, April 23rd 2013

Hi Alex! Is this a correct joke? When anyone asks you if the chair is left and I reply “yes, that is right”!

Tuesday, April 23rd 2013

    Haha. That’s not too bad. I’d probably tell it like this:

    “Are there any chairs left?”
    “No, they’re all on the right.” or “No, they’re right.”

    “Yes, that’s right” works too. I like it!

    Saturday, April 27th 2013

Hi Alex, it was funny lesson ! Using it as excercise, I tried to find an answer for every joke and write it down before you gave it. Of course I used a pause button in the video for my thinking :) These are my answers: 1.He wants to be happier. 2.Because seven is bigger. 3.Because the floor would be wet if it drank. 4.Because he doesn’t want to be blinded by his studetns’ knowledge. 5.No idea. I didn’t know the term contractions. Thanks a lot, more similar lessons would be fine. Regards, Dave
