Trousers Again

Q: What does a dog do that a person steps into?
A: Pants!

Explanation: Thank you to a friend from India for sending another joke about pants!

Pant is also the way a dog breathes when it is hot, usually a quick breathing with its tongue sticking out.  A dog pants.  So a person steps into pants and a dog pants.

This joke is funny because it plays with two meanings of the word pants.  It is also funny because when you read the joke, you might think of something a dog does (poops) that a person might step in (that’s kind of gross, but it happens.)

Here is an explanation of why dogs pant:
