The Empty Sack

Q: How many presents can Santa fit in his empty sack?Santa
A: Only one.  After that it is not empty anymore!

Explanation: The old empty sack trick!  This joke plays on the understanding of the words “empty” and “how many.”  The listener expects the answer to be a number, not an explanation.  But it is true- if there is one gift in the sack it is no longer empty.
