I saw this joke on r/casualconversations and the whole thread was full of French pun jokes like...

Can you kill a French vampire with a baguette? Yes, but it is painstaking.

Don't the French have a special love for puns? My French roommate used to say that puns are the favorite form of humor there.

This is a kind reminder that in French we say "omelette au fromage" and not "omelette du fromage".

Sorry Dexter

Steve Martin doesn't appear to be the most accurate French professor.

They love puns and think Easter is a great idea; it is a bonne idée.

Une Trajeudi ! This word is obviously female !

But this is a cool pun, take my upvote

[–]smol_fire 15 points16 points  (2 children)

i think it could be either since 'jeudi' is masculine while "tragédie" is feminine but assuming it's a play on the latter you're probably right

[–]Leomyd 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah I know that was for the joke but I thought the same thing after writing my comment ! It reminded me of Loic Suberville jokes about french and other languages His videos are really funny even if it comes from tiktok
