Ay, Carambar!

Sunday, August 23rd, 2009

Un gendarme fait stopper une automobiliste:
"Vous n'aviez pas vu le feu rouge?"
"Si, si. C'est vous que je n'avais pas vu!"


Carambars... miam!

If you’ve never had a Carambar, you’re missing out. They are sticks of caramel, a bit like those long, straight ones you get in boxes of Roses or Quality Street chocolates… but better.

And they come with a joke or two (in French) inside the wrapper. Sometimes, they’re not so great, and often, they are such obscure plays on words, that I jsut don’t get it.

The one I just ate had a good joke, though:

A policeman stops a driver for going through a red light.

“So what do you think you’re doing? didn’t you see the red light?!”

“Sure, I saw it… I just didn’t see you!”
