British humour jokes puns Level Up English podcast episode 202

Jokes & Puns

Although my lessons on jokes have always been a bit awkward in the past, let’s have a go at covering it in a podcast episode today. We’ll be looking at 5 jokes; each has a word or expression we can learn from. You may not laugh at the jokes, but I hope you have fun anyway.

Do you have a favourite English joke? Share it in the comments!

Puns from the Episode

Joke 1 - Plethora

At a funeral, a man asked to stand on stage to say a word in respect of the deceased. He clinked his glass and said “Plethora.” He walked off stage and the wife of the man who passed away said with a tear in her eye, “Thank you. That means a lot”.

Joke 2 - Rough

Person 1: I’ve taught my dog how to speak English.

Person 2: Nonsense! Dogs can’t talk!

Person 1: They can! See, watch this. 

Person 1: (turns to dog) What’s the state of the current situation in the UK?

Dog: Ruff. Ruff. 

Joke 3 - Hijack

I was arrested at the airport for greeting my friend, Jack! I have no idea why. I just shouted “Hi, Jack!” across the room and the guards jumped on me. 

Joke 4 - Wine

What did the grape say when it got crushed? 

It let out a little whine

Joke 5 - Thanks for nothing

To the guy who invented the number 0, thanks for nothing!
