16 YOUTH CORNER Wednesday, November 22 2017 | NEW ERA Name joke: a type of joke using English names that have the same pronunciation as other words, but a different meaning. Activity 1 Before you read, match the word to a definition. 1. alike 2. amusing 3. cliff 4. haunted 5. seagull a. a grey and white bird which lives near the sea b. a high area of land which ends suddenly, usually on the coast c. describes a place where ghosts or spirits visit d. funny e. similar to something What’s in a name? By Julie Dawn Fox What’s so funny? Cliff, Annette and Russell are typical British names. Do they seem funny to you? Probably not, but some people with these names are tired of people laughing at them. Why do they laugh? Name jokes A lot of English names sound the same as verbs or nouns; in fact some of them are exactly the same. That makes it easy for people to make jokes like this: Question: What do you call a man with a seagull on his head? Answer: Cliff. Why is that funny? Because seagulls usually live in or on cliffs near the coast. Here’s another: Question: What do you call a man in a pile of leaves? Answer: Russell. Russell sounds the same as rustle, which is the noise you make if you move dry leaves. Not so funny? How about this one? Activity 2 Now complete the sentences using words from the text. Make any changes to the words that are necessary. 1. I love walking along the (..........) on windy days watching giant waves crashing on the rocks below. 2. My friend and her sister look so (..........) it’s difficult to believe they aren’t twins. 3. People say that the old castle on the hill is (..........) by the ghost of a prince who was murdered in his sleep. 4. There are always lots of (..........) flying around at my local beach. 5. We all thought that the comedian was very (..........). Activity 3 Decide if the following statements are true or false, according to the text. Can you correct the false ones? 1. Name jokes are based on words that have alternative meanings or sound similar to something else. 2. You can only use real names to make name jokes. 3. It’s easy to make name jokes. 4. Everyone loves name jokes. 5. If you meet someone with a funny name you should always try to make a joke about it. Activity 4 Read the imaginary book titles and the names of the imaginary authors. In the third column, write the imaginary author names as the words they sound like. Use the book title to help you and remember to say the names aloud. Book title Author Words it sounds like e.g. In The Forest Theresa Green trees are green School Sports Jim Nasium Question: What do you call a woman standing on a tennis court? Answer: Annette. Did you get it? ‘A net’! By the book A creative way of turning names into jokes is by matching book titles with amusing author names. Try saying these aloud: Problems With Underwear Tying Shoelaces Geology Essentials Sailing The Pacific Lucy Lastic Ben Dover Roxanne Minerals Willie Maykit An Optician’s Guide by Seymour Clearly (see more clearly) Coastal Walks by Cliff Topp-Path (cliff-top path) Haunted House by Hugo First (you go first) Long Walk Home by Miss D. Buss (missed the bus) My Worst Journey by Helen Back (hell and back) Off To Market by Tobias A. Pigg (to buy us a pig). Activity 5 Do people in your country make name jokes, too? How funny is this type of joke? Over to you It’s easy to make name jokes yourself when you think about other meanings for words that sound alike. Bill, for example, is a short version of the name William and also something you have to pay in a restaurant or for electricity. Can you make a joke about Bill? A word of warning Name jokes can be very funny, especially when they are invented names. However, people with names that could be funny may not be so amused. If it’s possible to make a joke using their name, someone has probably done it, possibly hundreds of times, so don’t be surprised if they don’t laugh at your joke! Activity 4 1. gymnasium; 2. loose elastic; 3. bend over; 4. rocks and minerals; 5. Will he make it? Activity 3 1. True (T); 2. False (F) – Name jokes can be very funny, especially when they are invented names; 3. T; 4. F – Some people with these names are tired of people laughing at them; 5. F – No, people with names that could be funny may not be so amused Activity 2 1. cliffs; 2. alike; 3. haunted; 4. seagulls; 5. amusing Activity 1 1. e; 2. d; 3. b; 4. c; 5. a Answers For more fun activities to help you learn English visit Send your feedback to © British Council 2016
