Keep It Down Out There!

Q: What is the nosiest game you can play?
A: Racket-ball!

Explanation: Some people like some noise in their lives while others prefer a quiet environment.  Some of us are in between–sometimes I like a little music or background noise but mostly I prefer quiet conversation.

Racket is another word for noise. You might hear people ask, “What’s all that racket?” when they want to know where the noise is from.

Racket is also the name of the equipment that tennis players use to hit the ball. Rackets are also used to play badminton and racquetball. By the way, racketball and racquetball are different sports.

This joke is funny because it plays with the different meanings of the word racket.
