A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF TYPES OF JOKES
There are many types of English humour.  This section is an introduction to some of them.  Traditionally, many jokes begin as follows:-

  • Knock! Knock!
  • What did …… say to ………?
  • What do you get if you cross a ….. with a …..?
  • What has ….?
  • What is ….?
  • What do you call ………?
  • What’s the difference between ….. and …..?
  • Have you heard the joke about ……?

English jokes are often made around names, misunderstandings, similar-sounding words (puns, homophones). Some jokes are portrayed as a part of a conversation.  Much of the subject of jokes is also traditional – about toilets, drunks, pubs, etc.  Particularly silly jokes, which are loved by children, are called:-  The Elephant Jokes,  The Wally Jokes, etc.  Samples of these are also included.

An explanation of each joke is given with the answer key.
