Spanish joke – A conversation between two fleas
Podcast episode 25 – SEE ALL EPISODES
Today’s idea comes from James, one of my Twitter followers. James suggested to me a few days ago that I include a Spanish joke in my podcast.
I have to confess, at first I didn’t think it was a good idea. But then I looked around on the web and found a joke that caught my imagination. So, today we’re going to practice telling that joke in Spanish.

I hope you’re still talking to me after this episode.
Spanish joke: let’s hear it
The Spanish joke goes like this:
– ¿Qué le dice una pulga a otra pulga? – ¿Vamos a pie o esperamos al perro?
I’ll say it again: ¿Qué le dice una pulga a otra pulga? – ¿Vamos a pie o esperamos al perro?
And in English it’s: What does one flea say to another flea? Are we going on foot or should we wait for the dog?
Spanish joke: word practice
Let’s go through the words in this joke:
qué – what
dice – it says
una pulga – a flea
otra pulga – another flea
vamos – we go, we’re going
a pie – on foot
esperamos – we wait
el perro – the dog
Let’s say those words again.
Spanish joke: line by line
Now let’s say the first line of the joke: ¿Qué le dice una pulga a otra pulga?
And now, let’s say the second line: ¿Vamos a pie o esperamos al perro?
Now, let’s say the two lines: ¿Qué le dice una pulga a otra pulga? – ¿Vamos a pie o esperamos al perro?
And one last time: ¿Qué le dice una pulga a otra pulga? – ¿Vamos a pie o esperamos al perro?
Tell this joke to your Spanish friends, and tell me what they think. Drop me an email, or get in touch on Tw or FB. I’d love to know.
I know, I know. Those fleas were too lazy to go on foot.
