Bonsai?

Q: What kind of tree fits in your hand?
A: A palm tree!

A palm tree is a tree that is found in tropical climates like the one in the picture.

This joke is funny because it plays with the two meanings of the word palm: part of your hand and a type of tree.

Speaking of palms, do you know how to do any magic tricks with your palm?
