Pardon My France

(This is a conversation that occurred between my sister and I through text message one day while I am cleaning my room. Note that my sister is terrible at geography. After checking my phone to see a text from my sister:)

Sister: “Hey, [My Name], I have a joke for you!”

Me: “All right, go ahead.”

Sister: “What did the snake say when it fell off the Eiffel Tower?”

Me: “Um, I don’t know. What?”

Sister: “I’m in Sssss-pain!”

Me: “…”

Sister: “Get it?”

Me: “No… why would the snake say that they’re in Spain?”

Sister: “Because the Eiffel Tower’s in Spain!”

(Pause.)

Me: “[Sister], the Eiffel Tower is in France.”

Sister: “No, it isn’t.”

Me: “Yes, it is.”

Sister: “It is?”

Me: “Yes…”

(I ended up relaying the conversation to my mom after assuring my sister that the Eiffel Tower is, indeed, in France. My family still cracks up whenever we mention anything having to do with that incident!)
