Spanish humor: The best way to practise you Spanish skills


Here’s a short joke in Spanish with a line-by-line English translation. The short passage has been written using minimal Spanish that needs little more than an elementary knowledge of the language. Read this passage a few times and see if you can relate the Spanish sentences with their English translations.


El doctor llama por teléfono a su paciente:

(The doctor calls his patient by telephone:)

- Vera, tengo una noticia buena y otra mala.

("Vera, I have good news and bad news.")

- Bueno... dígame primero la buena.

("Well then, . . . tell me the good news first.")

- Los resultados del análisis indican que le quedan 24 horas de vida.

("The results of the analysis indicate that you have 24 hours left to live.")

- Pero, bueno, ¿eso es la buena noticia? ¿Entonces cuál es la mala?

("Well, that's the good news? Then what's the bad news?")

- Que llevo intentando localizarle desde ayer.

("That I have been trying to reach you since yesterday.")
