  4. […] Tirinha original publicada em 16 de fevereiro de 2006 Infelizmente, a piada desta tirinha foi perdida com a tradução. A idéia é que where (onde) e wear (vestir) são palavras com pronúncia semelhantes, gerando então um trocadilho sobre o que está sendo feito com a barra de sabão. Mas a tirinha vale à pena só por vermos os dois juntinhos na banheira pela primeira vez! […]

    Brilliant. Two jokes with the one punch line. Or does that make it three?
    How could one better that?

    I don’t think I get this one. “Wears the soap” doesn’t quite make sense as a statement, at least not in English. I take it the referenced joke, which I’ve never heard, goes something like: Where’s/wears the soap – it does, doesn’t it? A question taken unexpectedly as a statement, but it still doesn’t make much sense to me. Is there an implied, but unspoken, subject – “[It/your penis] wears the soap”? I guess that must be the joke, juvenile though it may be. I have trouble suspending my disbelief here, as no one would credibly say “Wears the soap” although they might certainly ask “Where’s the soap?” It stretches the point too much.
    – Get it?

    The version I heard as a child was about two nuns in the bath. One says “Where’s the soap?” and the other says “Yes its does, doesn’t it?”, referring to the abrasive effect of pubic hair on soap. HTH

  12. Aaron says:

    Doesn’t make much sense in American English. “Wear” is something you normally do with clothing. “Wear out” is usually used to mean some sort of abrasion.
