|English term or phrase: a joke|
|Kan iemand me met dit grapje helpen? Het gaat over een Amerikaans stadje met de naam Stealy. |
- I thought I'd drop in on my uncle and aunt.
You see, they live just up the road apiece and it's been so long since I've spent any time.
- It's a joke, you know, a regional type, given the area joke.
|Dutch translation:spending time...|
I wonder if the clue to this joke is that the aunt and uncle are 'doing time' at the local prison and the person who tells the joke has not been in jail for a while? A wild guess which would only go up if there is a prison in the town of Stealy. I don't think it's very funny either... but it's the best I can come up with....
Do you not have more text, to help your helpers along?
