Luke (00:02):
You're listening to an English conversation podcast with Dialogue Frog. So, Rachel, what is your favorite joke?

Rachel (00:12):
Wow. Uh, there's so many good ones out there. I can't think of one off the top of my head, but I will tell you one from when I was a kid that I told pretty buddy, pretty much everybody. And that is 'where do generals keep their armies?'

Luke (00:29):
Where?

Rachel (00:29):
In their sleevies.

Luke (00:33):
Oh no!

Rachel (00:33):
Get it?

Luke (00:33):
It's-

Rachel (00:33):
It's a sleeve where you put your arm. Yeah.

Luke (00:37):
That's pretty great.

Rachel (00:39):
It's so bad, it's good. How 'bout you? What's your favorite joke?

Luke (00:44):
Why do golfers wear two pairs of pants?

Rachel (00:48):
Why?

Luke (00:48):
In case they get a hole in one.

Rachel (00:51):
A hole in one, like when you're actually playing golf and you get a hole in one.

Luke (00:58):
Yep, it's true.

Rachel (00:58):
It's pretty funny.

Luke (01:00):
So do you have a favorite comedian?

Rachel (01:03):
That's also a tough question. Um, there's a lot of good- I, I really like Steve Martin, which I know is kind of, he's from an older generation. Um, Steve Martin and Martin Short. Um, Eddie Izzard, I like, but a lot of his jokes are more on the non-family friendly side of things.

Luke (01:33):
Yeah.

Rachel (01:33):
Um, I, I think my all time favorite might be Jim Gaffigan. Now-

Luke (01:39):
Yeah.

Rachel (01:39):
-that I'm thinking about it.

Luke (01:41):
He's pretty funny.

Rachel (01:42):
He does a lot of food-based humor.

Luke (01:44):
Yeah.

Rachel (01:44):
Which I relate to.

Luke (01:46):
Yeah. Well, on that note, um, we're gonna wrap this up, at-

Rachel (01:55):
Like a burrito.

Luke (01:56):
Like a burrito. That's a good one. This has been an English conversation podcast with Dialogue Frog. For transcripts and vocabulary lists, please visit dialoguefrog.com.
