“Llama Llama”

Q: What’s more amazing than a talking llama?
A: A spelling bee!

Explanation:  I love llamas– especially here in Peru.  And no, llamas do not talk but it sure would be amazing if they did!

In this joke the idea of a talking llama leads to the idea of a bee that talks or maybe even spells (Llama is spelled l-l-a-m-a).  This joke is funny because a spelling bee is a contest where students show how much they know about spelling words… it is not a bee that spells.

Here is a clip from Akeelah and the Bee- a movie about a spelling bee:
