These are one-liners, but pretty hilarious!

I really love a good joke or riddle, and I’m not sure why anyone wouldn’t!

So when I stumbled on these and after sharing some with Tee, I said to him “You know I have to blog about this right?”.

    Very witty and also funny. I liked this one;What did Adam say too his wife on the day before Christmas?It’s Christmas, Eve!. Also, the one about Santa saying smoking is not good for my elf (like health) and the one about elf is presley like Elvis Presley. So supprised that I understood most of them, I guess I’m that smart and I’ve always known that Nigeria is not really my first country afterall *lol*Happy holidays Kachi, I hope you enjoyed your christmas?My Style Look Book Series

    The very reason why many nigerians like me will fail this is because of the accent attached. For example, you guys in the abroad pronounce it MAIN-CHESTER UNITED(manchester united) but we pronounce it MAAN-CHESTER UNITED(manchester united). Another example is the one you guys pronounce ELF-ABET(alphabet) while we pronounce it ALFA-BET(alphabet). Does any naija person agree with me?
