BAD CHRISTMAS JOKES (5)

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Happy Friday everyone! Welcome back to our week of Christmas Jokes. We are finishing up the week with one last joke to, hopefully, make you laugh (or at least smile).


Before continuing, I would like to remind you about our #SoyVitaminero contest. As you may know, this year is the 15th anniversary of the Daily Vitamin and to celebrate we have launched a contest... and you could win a Tablet Fire HD 8. Basically, it consists of writing a Daily Vitamin lesson similar to the one you are reading today.

You can read more about contest at the following link: https://basicfront.easypromosapp.com/p/932041


Question: Why did the Christmas tree go to the barber?
Answer: Because it needed to get trimmed. 

Do you understand it? Why is this funny? 

When we decorate the Christmas tree, we can use the expression TO TRIM THE TREE to describe this activity. We also use TRIM to describe getting your hair cut a little bit to make it look tidier or more level.

That's all for our week of holiday fun. Join us next week for the last week of Daily Vitamins of 2018! We will look at the Words of the Year from 2013 to 2017.

Have a great weekend!

BAD CHRISTMAS JOKES (4)

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Happy Thursday, everyone! Are you enjoying our silly week of Christmas jokes? We have another one to make you laugh today...well, we hope it makes you laugh.

Joke: Christmas is a time that everyone gets Santamental

Why is this funny?

This sentence should use the word "sentimental." Sentimental is an adjective we use to describe people who are strongly influenced by emotional feelings (happiness, sadness, nostalgia, etc.). Instead, the joke uses the word "Santamental," which makes a joke about having feelings related to Santa during the holidays. 

Are you laughing? Or maybe you are shaking your head at this bad joke?

Join us tomorrow for one more holiday joke!

Thank you for reading.

BAD CHRISTMAS JOKES (3)

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Welcome back, Daily Vitamin readers!

It's our third day of Christmas Jokes. Are you ready to laugh? Here is your joke of the day.

Question: Why was Santa's helper depressed?
Answer: Because he had low elf-esteem. 

Do you get it? Did it make you laugh (or at least smile)?

Santa's helpers are called elves (the singular form is elf). This joke plays with the expression "self-esteem" and uses “elf-esteem” instead. 

We hope you enjoyed today's joke!

Join us tomorrow for another one. Take care!

BAD CHRISTMAS JOKES (2)

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Hello and welcome back, everyone!

It's day two of our Holiday / Christmas Jokes theme. We think we have the perfect joke for our grammar-loving Daily Vitamin readers.

Here is today's joke.

Question: What do you call Santa's helpers?
Answer: Subordinate Clauses. 

Do you get it?

In English grammar, a subordinate clause is a clause, typically introduced by a conjunction, that forms part of and is dependent on a main clause. Here is an example. 

Example 1: She answered the phone when it rang. 

“When it rang” is the subordinate clause ("when" is the subordinate conjunction). 

So, what's the joke? In English, the word "subordinate" also means "lower in importance or rank." It is used to describe people who work for another person. Therefore,
Santa's helpers are subordinates of Santa Claus. They are subordinate clauses

We hope you're laughing (or at least smiling) at this grammar joke. Join us tomorrow for another one!

Thank you for reading.

BAD CHRISTMAS JOKES (1)

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Happy Monday, everyone!

Today we begin our second week of holiday-related posts, and we are celebrating the season with a week of Holiday Jokes. Are you ready to laugh (or cry?) a little? One of the more difficult things to do in your second language is tell and understand jokes (no matter how good or bad they are).

Here is today's joke:

Question: Who is a Christmas tree’s favourite singer?
Answer: Spruce Springsteen. 

Do you get it?

A spruce is a type of Christmas tree, and it sounds like the name Bruce (as in the famous American rock singer, Bruce Springsteen). 

That's all for today. Laugh again with us tomorrow! ;-)
