As a senior secondary education student here on campus, I have had the privilege of student teaching at Elkhart High School (GO LIONS!).A day-to-day conversation with my English as a New Language III students is packed with inside jokes, advice and stories about funny activities they like doing. I’ve been wanting to incorporate student teaching into the funnies section, so I offered my students an incentive — five points of extra credit — to help me out. The students were more than willing to give me a few of their best jokes.
Please note: a majority of these jokes are in Spanish, and some do not have a direct translation.
¿Qué le dijo una nalga a otra nalga? ¿Oíste la balacera de anoche?
What did one butt cheek say to the other one? Did you hear the shootout last night? — J.C.
¿Qué baile le gusta más al tomate? La salsa.
What dance does a tomato like most? Salsa. — M.R.
¿Qué le dijo una uva verde a una morada? Respira, respira.
What did a green grape say to a purple one? Breathe, breathe. — G.C.
I don’t know what to say, I just want the extra credit — J.M.L.
¿Qué le dijo un pez a otro pez? Nada
(No direct translation) — V.O.T.
Spanish riddle — guess the answer: Este banco está ocupado por un padre y por un hijo; el padre se llama Juan y el hijo ya te lo he dicho.

¿Que le dijo una taza a otra taza? ¿Qué taza ciendo?
(No direct translation) — N.V.
I appreciate all the students who took the time to write a little joke. I laugh every time they say anything (mostly so they will give me a good score on my student teacher evaluation, jaja).
