Lightbulb Salamander jokes...

Hey guys, I know this sounds weird but I was bored which eventually led to me looking up jokes involving salamanders and such...and only one thing came up. This -
A man walks in to a bar with a newt on his shoulder and orders a beer , the barman says whats that on your shoulder ? , the man replies thats my pet newt and his name is tiny , why do you call him tiny asks the barman ? and the man replies because he is my newt ! .

Mabey I'm just slow but I don't find that very funny. Anyone got any good ones?

Hee hee hee.

I like it, it's a very clever play on words. I think it's one of those jokes that needs to be spoken aloud though rather than reading it silently to yourself.

Default Re: Salamander jokes...

Before we go setting misconceptions for the non-native English speaking world about the pronunciation of "minute", let's make it clear. Forgive me if you already know the difference but think of this as insurance against misinformation!

"Minute" is a unit of time, and the first syllable rhymes with "bin" (as in rubbish bin), and the second syllable sounds like "nut" (the things squirrels like eat).

"Minute" applied to size is pronounced with the first syllable rhyming with "mine" (as in don't step on that mine, it's mine), and the second syllable sounds like "newt" (as in Caudata.org).
