Q. What’s white & black & blue all over?
A. A nun falling down the stairs.
Q. What’s white & black & read all over?
A. The newspaper.
Man, those jokes take me back to elementary school. For starters, that first joke seems in poor taste, making mockery of a sister in the faith who was unfortunate enough to trip on the stairs. I mean, we’ve all been there, right? Also, the “I fell down the stairs” angle has its own implications.
I’m not clear on how to write the second joke. The hilarity comes from the red/read homophone pun, which works best when said aloud. Also, it’s clearly coming from a previous era. What’s a newspaper??
