Can You Spell Mississippi?
Now I have to say that I love a good clean joke as much as the next guy, so when I came across this pronunciation-dependent joke from the “Funny Cool Stuff” website, I just had to share it.
Can you spell Mississippi?
I always find geographical terms and names of places are the hardest to spell out. For example, like, the Mediterainians… I mean, Mediteraneans… Again! M-e-d-i-t-e-r-r-a-n-e-a-n-s.
Then I found a humorous and fun way to remember how to spell “Mississippi” through this joke:
A bus stops and two Italian men get on. They sit down and engage in an
animated conversation. The lady sitting behind them ignores them at
first, but her attention is galvanized when she hears one of
the men say the following:
“Emma come first. Den I come. Den two asses come together. I come
once-a-more. Two asses, they come together again. I come again and pee
twice. Then I come one lasta time.”
“You foul mouthed swine,” retorted the lady indignantly. “In this
country we don’t talk about our sex lives in public!”
“Hey, coola down lady,” said the man. “Who talkin’ abouta sexa? I’m
just tellin’ my frienda how to spella ‘Mississippi’.”
So how about you? Did you get it? Hope you got at least a smile.
