В порядке подготовки к 1 апреля, прочитала не одну сотню шуток для детей на английском языке. Сегодня делюсь, на мой взгляд, самыми удачными.
1. Girl: You would be a good dancer except for two things.

И наконец моя самая любимая шутка:
15. A family of mice were surprised by a big cat.
Father Mouse jumped and and said, “Bow-wow!” The cat ran away.
