OK, so here it is, the official PUNS thread. Shout out to @sewcraftyme @Danacscott

Did you hear about the girl who was so cross-eyed that when she cried tears went down her back? And, she got bacteria (back-tear-ia).

@Fraggles - That translates to “Please give me two chopsticks. These are all from Japan.”
I’m afraid I don’t get it?

That’s because you don’t know how to read it, look at the romanized script for a hint. It’s a pun, obviously a straight translation isn’t going to work very well.

So the first character looks like 2 vertical chopsticks, right?

I suppose it does, to a degree. Doesn’t really have anything to do with anything though, that’s a two. Chopsticks is the 4th character which looks like a game of pick-up sticks, but then most of them do. Very few kanji are actually ideographs.

Romanization

Ni hon no hashi wo kudasai. karera ha zenbu Nihon kara desu.

Fully dissected frog

二本 (nihon) means two “long cylindrical things” +no hashi = “Two chopsticks”
Which reads exactly the same as 日本の箸 = “Japanese chopsticks”.
They’re all from Japan… you get it? right? it’s hilarious!

I told my friend 10 puns, hoping at least one would make them laugh. No pun in ten did (no pun intended).

I made a corona joke.

But rereading it now, it was tasteless.

I’m assuming this in itself is a pun, right? (since loss of taste/smell is one of the symptoms of corona)

Only batman can help here.

Ok okok. One more that I like.

Some people got corona later in the year. But some got it right off the bat.
