  1. Classic Italian joke (they need to be Italians, because of the accent):

    A bus stops and two Italian men get on. They sit down and engage in an animated conversation.
    The lady sitting behind them ignores them at first, but her attention is galvanized when she hears one of the men say the following:

    “Emma come first.
    Den I come.
    Den two asses come together.
    I come once-a-more.
    Two asses, they come together again.
    I come again and pee twice.
    Then I come one lasta time.”

    “You foul-mouthed swine, ” retorted the lady indignantly. “In this country we don’t talk about our sex lives in public!”

    “Hey, coola down, lady,” said the man. “Who talkin’ abouta sexa? I’m a just tellin’ my friend how to spell Mississippi.”

    • A man decides he’s going to be a stand-up comic, and to test some of his material, he uses his mother as an audience.

      “Okay, here’s my best joke, Mom. Two guys from the mainland are walking down a street in Honolulu, and they’re arguing about how to pronounce the name of the state: Hawaii or Havaii. Finally one says, ‘Here’s an obvious native approaching us, so let’s ask him. Excuse me, how do you pronounce it, Hawaii or Havaii?’

      ‘Havaii’, says the native.

      ‘See, I told you so’, he says to his friend, and to the native, ‘Thank you very much.’

      ‘You’re velcome’, says the native.”

      The man pauses for a laugh but doesn’t get one. “I don’t get it”, says the man’s mother. “Vot’s funny?”

      (In actual fact, the v-sound and the w-sound in HawaiĘ»ian are not really separate, and are both written with “w”. After “i” or “e”, the usual pronunciation is “v”; after “o” or “u”, it’s usually “w”; and after “a” or at the beginning of a word it can be either. Speakers of HawaiĘ»ian mostly don’t notice the difference.)
