I would like to ask you for some "funny" help.
My English teacher gave me a homework - I have to find an English joke.
I know that there is a lot of this stuff in the internet but I want to have short and unique one
I know that other people will look for this joke in the internet - websites.
Do you know any funny and short english joke?
When you say "an English joke" does that mean "a joke in the English language" or "a joke from the country England"?
If its the first one, then you can use a joke in your native language, and translate it into English (Warning: the joke might not be funny after translation, you might end up making a Poor Joke (PJ) which might reduce your marks )
A lot of "English" jokes (about the folks living in England) have a lot of side cultural references. Here is a classic one liner:
q: why to the Brits like warm beer
a: Lucas refrigerators
To think this makes any sense, you have to know that british cars in the 60s through 80s had Lucas Electrics electrical systems (radios, wiring, ignition, etc.) which were famous for failing. They would usually only fail when it really hurt, like the windshield wiper motor failing in the middle of the night in a rainstorm.
Sports car fans used to make lots of jokes about "Lucas, prince of Darkness" because Lucas headlights would go out at bad times.
So the Lucas refrigerators means that they never run, so beer is warm, so the Brits learned to like it that way.
The reality is that Brits have liked warm beer since before electricity was invented.

q: What's brown and sticky?
a: A stick.
My son loves this one!
One of the dictionary meaning of 'stick' is 'A small thin branch of a tree'. and tree branch is mostly brown. So in that way the answer is stick. Is this proper understanding?
Yes. Children, especially, will add "-y" to an English noun X to create an adjective meaning "X-like" or "full of X". So "sticky", according to this rule, means "like a stick". And of course a stick is pretty much exactly like a stick
