Q: Why did Tomás throw the clock out the window?
A: He wanted to see time fly!
Explanation: “Time flies” means that time seems to pass quickly as in the expression, “time flies when you are having fun.” Of course if you throw a clock then the clock, which shows the time, is flying. This joke plays with the words “time flies,” both the figurative meaning and the literal meaning.
As winter comes to Minnesota, I kind of hope that time flies and that spring comes soon.
