Q: Where do ghosts like to go sailing?
A: Lake Eerie!
Explanation: If you ever get the chance to go sailing, I would highly recommend it. It is a beautiful experience to let the wind move your boat without using a motor.
Ghosts, of course, like places that are scary or frightening. The word eerie means strange or frightening. An eerie experience might be sitting alone in a dark house, hearing strange sounds, and seeing faint lights that look like ghosts.
Lake Erie is the 4th largest of the Great Lakes in North America. I have never seen it, but the pictures sure look nice.
This joke is funny because it plays with the words eerie and (Lake) Erie which sound exactly the same.
