Jokes about language




If you start understanding jokes about a (foreign) language you know that you start to master that language, because jokes about a language can only be understood if you know that language well.

Like this one about 'holding the ground'.

And: let's not worry about nasty little language details like this one.

I think you would be considered a master of any language if you could figure out the humour of the country's local political cartoons in the big news papers. I find that a grasp of humour in any country has as much to do with what makes the culture smile than whether one can understand the language.

Yep, agreed: understanding culture and politics is key to understand such jokes. This one is not challenging language wise, but without any meaning if one doesn't have any knowledge about the context.
