Airport Food

Q: What kind of candy can you get an an airport?
A: Plane M&Ms!

Explanation: Even though there are lots of studies that talk about sugar being bad for you, well, a little bit still tastes good.  Every place in the world has candy, and candy can even make for  a good joke too!

You know what candy is, so I won’t explain that.  And you know all about airports, especially that airports have airplanes, also called planes.  There are many different types of planes.  Did you know that you can get a license to be a pilot at age 14 in some places?  I have always wanted to get a pilot’s license but never did, at least not yet.

Plane, though, is not the same as plain.  Plane refers to airplanes, while plain means ordinary, not decorated, not special.  (Plane can also be a tool, and plain can also be a type of land, depending on the context.).   M&Ms come in many flavors such as peanut M&Ms, and almond M&Ms.  Plain M&Ms are the ones that only have chocolate in the middle, nothing else.

This joke is funny because it plays with the words plane and plain, which sound the same.  Take a look at this video to see how M&Ms are made.  (You could even try adding narration to make the video better.)
