    Je l'ai trouvé bien amusante :

    Quelle note de musique est toujours malade ?

    C'est le Fa bemol, puisqu'il vomit.

    translated: I found it very amusing:

    What note is always sick?

    This is the F-flat, as he vomits.

    Here's an explanation:

    Quelle note de musique est toujours malade ?

    Which note is always sick?

    C'est le Fa bemol, puisqu'il vomit. (vomit or vaut Mi, Mi is ''E'' in french)

    It is the F-flat, because it is the same as E.

    As far as I can figure out, it's a pun on the phonemes vo-mit, which sounds like "vaut mi" -- vaut being from the verb valoir: to be worth.
    So: "an F flat is as good as an E (or literally: is worth an E)"
    sounds like it pukes, in French.

    Btw, English puns are just as hard to explain to non-English speakers!

    [Edit: Ok, Bassman74 beat me to it!]

    Moi, j'suis un bloc de l'ouest de l'île! Mais j'essaie d'améliorer mon français. J'écoute le 98.5, et je suis en train de déchiffrer "Mur de Briques" par J. Gagnon. C'est lent! :^)

    -quelle est la difference entre un accordéon et un trombonne ?
    -L'accordéon brule beaucoup plus rapidement

    -Un accordéoniste arrive de sa gig , oubli son accordéon de 5000$ sur la banc arrière de sa voiture , va se coucher. Le lendemain il se lève , regarde par la fenêtre et voit la fenêtre de sa voiture brisée.
    Il sort en courrant voir les dégats , et il y avait 5 accordéons sur le banc. :p

    -Comment appelles-tu un batteur célibataire ?
    -Étinérant

    Je sais qu'elles se content en anglais mais j'écrit tellement plus vite en français.....
