    • Whatsofunny WHEN AIRPORT SECURITY SAW THE GUY’S MUG DROOL, THEY REALIZED HE WAS A DRUG MULE What’s so funny about this? After telling the joke about donkeys killing more people than sharks and airplanes, I had a comment by a facebook buddy from Auckland, New Zealand. Isn’t it amazing how we’re all connected these days? It also made me think, what the hell are Aucks that they should get a whole land just for themselves? For that matter, what the hell are Zeas, the land where the Aucks apparently live? A quick internet search gave me the answers which are not nearly as funny as the questions. New Zealand got its name from a Dutch map-maker and refers to Zealand in Holland. “Zee,” means “river” in Dutch, so Zee, spelled z-e-e, or Zealand, spelled z-e-a-l-a-n-d, means land of the river. BTW. We have a Zee right here in New York. It’s the Tappan Zee, which is the Dutch name for the Hudson River and we still have a very large bridge called the Tappan Zee. As for the Aucks, well Auckland was named for a British colonial officer who had been the Viceroy of Auckland. “Auck”, a-u-c-k is an Old English term that can be traced back to the word “Oak,” o-a-k, so it’s the land of oak trees. Pretty boring, huh? Of course, this has nothing to do with the joke, so you can skip that part if and when you re-listen to this audioboo. OK, so in the joke we have some guy whose mug is drooling. “Mug” can by a synonym for cup, but it’s also an old slang term meaning “face.” This latter is the meaning in the joke. “Drool” is saliva that comes out of your mouth when you can’t control your mouth’s muscles. The spoonerized term “drug mule” is slang for someone who smuggles drugs from one country to another, usually by ingesting, or swallowing the drugs, which are in plastic packets. If the plastic tears open, the person, or mule, can get sick or even die from an overdose. Possibly one of the packets ripped and that’s why the guy was drooling. Naturally this revealed his true identity as a smuggling drug mule. Hopefully, they pumped his stomach. For the guys sake let’s hope they don’t turn him over to the Aucks and the Zeas. And THAT’s what’s so funny

    • 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.
