A Bad Joke - intro
I didn't come up with this, and I can't find the source, but I just think it's utterly hilarious. However, you need a certain knowledge of Spanish to get it. Here goes!
A Bad Joke - body
A Spanish speaking man who spoke no English walked into an English-speaking department store and was greeted by a salesperson.
"Quiero calcetines," said the man.
"I don't know what you're saying," said the salesperson. "But we have a lovely array of shirts over here."
"No, ¡no quiero camisetas, quiero calcetines!"
"I still don't understand you, but right here is a selection of fine shoes."
"¡No quiero zapatos, quiero calcetines!"
"Well, we have some very high quality pants over here."
"¡No quiero pantalones, quiero calcetines!"
"I still can't understand what you're saying," said the salesperson, starting to get annoyed. "But over there we've got the finest suits in the country."
"¡No quiero trajes, quiero calcetines!"
As the two continued like this, they passed the underwear section, where the man spotted a nice pair of white socks and grabbed them, gleefully exclaiming, "¡Eso sí que es!"
"Well, if you could spell it, why didn't you just do that?!" said the salesperson.
A Bad Joke - in conclusion
The Spanish grammar of the man's last line isn't perfect, but it communicates the idea and makes for a great joke, in my opinion. Though I do think the joke is terrible. Funny how that can be the case so often.
