UNDERSTANDING JOKES IN A FOREIGN LANGUAGE COULD BE VERY CHALLENGING!
MOST OF THE TIMES it IS DUE TO A LACK OF KNOWLEDGE OF THE CULTURAL BACKGROUNd!
TAKE THE FOLLOWING EXAMPLE:
Una mamma incinta e suo figlio sono al ristorante.
A un tratto si avvicina una signora e chiede alla mamma:
- Aspetta il secondo?
E lei: - No! Aspetto il dessert!
A pregnant woman and her son are sitting at the restaurant.
suddenly a woman get closer and ask the mum:
-are you waiting for the second?
and she replies: - no! I'm waiting for dessert!
Explanation: Not everyone knows that "IL SECONDO- The Second" is a main dish in the Italian cuisine, which is usually meat or fish.
It's served after "IL PRIMO - The First Dish" , which is usually Pasta or Rice.
In the joke the woman was asking if the mum was waiting for the second child, but the mum misunderstood and replied with "Dessert" as she was thinking about the courses!
