Top 20 Spanish Jokes

There are plenty of funny jokes in Spanish. But when we translate them into English, they barely make sense but they are very funny in the Spanish language. Let’s take a look at some of the hilarious jokes that had me laughing out loud.

  1. The Lazy fish:

¿Qué hace el pez perezoso? ¡Nada! 

It means, what does a lazy fish do? Nothing! Or he swims!

So, this joke means that a lazy fish does not do anything except swimming. Here nada has two meanings. One is nothing, and the other is used for third-person singular form i.e. to swim.

¿Qué hace una abeja en el gimnasio? Zumba!

It means, what does a bee do at the gym? Zumba!

  1. A beach saying hello:

It means, what did a beach say to the ocean? Hi!

In Spanish, Ola means wave and Hola means hello. So this joke means beach say hi to the waves.

  1. Lazy cows:

Cuáles son las vacas más perezosas? Vacaciones!

It means, what’s the laziest type of cow? A cow!

When we translate such jokes, they don’t make sense. But they do in the Spanish language. In Spanish, ‘vaca’ means cow, it is the same as the first two syllabus of vacations. That’s why they said vacations as the laziest cows. It’s ok if it didn’t make any sense. Let’s move ahead.

  1. A laughing Orange:

¿Cuál es la fruta que más se ríe? La naranja, ja, ja, ja, ja…

It means, which fruit laughs the most? The orange, ha ha ha ha

In the Spanish language, the word ‘ja’ means ‘ha’. As in Spanish, orange is naranja so this joke means that orange has ‘ja’ at the end. They are laughing a lot.

  1. The angry Bear:

¿Cómo se llama un oso enfadado? ¡Furioso!

It means, what do you call an angry bear? Furious!

This joke means that as ‘oso’ in Spanish means bear. And furious is ‘Furioso’. So, altogether it means Furioso; an angry bear.

  1. The talking roof:

¿Qué le dijo un techo a otro techo? Techo de menos.

It means, what did one roof say to the other roof? I miss you.

The Spanish word ‘ techo’ means roof, which sounds very similar to ‘ te echo’. And ‘te echo menos’ is a way of saying ‘ I miss you’.

  1. The last animal on Noah’s ark:

¿Cuál fue el último animal en entrar al arca de Noé? El del-fín.

It means, what was the last animal to enter Noah’s ark? A dolphin.

So, in Spanish, the dolphin is called ‘delfin’. This word is very familiar to the word ‘del-fin’ which means ‘at the end’. So as delfins are del-fins, they might board at the on Noah’s ark.

  1. Where did the wine come from?

¿Vino de la casa, señor? ¿Y a usted por qué le importa de dónde vengo?

It means, house wine sir, why does it matter to you where I come from?

In Spanish, vino means “wine”, but it’s also a form of the verb venir, which means “to come”. Vino de la casa means “house wine”, but it can also mean “did you come from the house?”. Therefore, this is why the guest is offended.

It means, last week I bought myself a watch. What brand? The time!

In Spanish, ‘que marca’ has two meanings. ‘The brand’ and ‘ what does it indicates’. So it can be a misunderstanding in this joke.

  1. The talking bread:

¿Cómo haces para que un pan hable? Lo pones en agua toda la noche y a la mañana siguiente ya está blando.

It means, how do you get bread to talk? Put it in the water all night, and the next day it will be soft. Here, the words ‘it’s soft’ and ‘it’s talking’ in Spanish sound similar. Hence, this is the reason for this joke.

  1. Belted eight:

¿Qué le dice el cero al ocho? Me gusta tu cinturón

it means, what does a zero say to the eight? I like your belt.

As zero and eight are similar. Hence, only 8 have a belt on it.

Elfabet and elf-abet are two familiar words. Furthermore, meaning the elf and alphabet. That is why we might say elves leaning in schools as elf-abet.
