Dear Bare

Q: What do you call a bear with no ears?

Q: What do you call a deer with no eyes?
A: No eye-deer!

Explanation: When someone asks you a question, and you do not know the answer, you might say, “I have no idea.”  Some English speakers tend to put the ‘r’ sound on the end of the word ‘idea’ so that is sounds like ide-er. 

In this joke, a deer with no eyes (a no eye deer) sounds like no ide-er.

By the way, both bear and deer (animals) have words that sound the same, bare and dear.  Here is a baby bear meeting a baby deer for the first time (why they were together in a house I do not know!):
