Garudas and Phoenixes and Rocs and Simurghs all belong in conworlds and concultures.
So don’t have them walk into a bar if that gets up your nose.

Maybe not a joke exactly, but I noticed a pun that seems popular with Francophone museums. When a museum is announcing an activity, it may throw in On va s'a-musée, which is a play on On va s'amuser "We'll have fun", replacing part of s'amuser "have fun" with musée "museum".

There's no agreement at all on how to punctuate the phrase; I've found On va s'a-musée, On va s'a « musée », On va s'a[musée], On va s'a‍…‍musée, On va s'a'musée, On va s'aMUSEE and the list goes on [o.O]

Procedural question: Is it appropriate to post memes in this thread?

Here's a quote I saw on a friend's Facebook page. Some nice wordplay:


I finally quit drinking for good.

1) in any natlang or conlang you know, how do they commonly call next-generation light antitank weapons?
2) in the same language(s), what are the common terms for spouse’s sibling and sibling’s spouse?
3) are those terms homophonous, or close to it?

— How do you tell the difference between a chemist and a plumber?
— Ask them to pronounce “unionized”.

Spoiler:
The plumber will say “union-ized”. The chemist will say “un-ionized”.
