I'm guessing the humor comes from the fact that whether you put "yes" or "no" in the blank the meaning stays the same. Am I right? Of course other parts of the sentence have to be modified to agree positively or negatively. But maybe it isn't like that in the joke tellers native language so it seems strange to him? Am I right?

BTW it's "I don't have A brain"

if i choose "Yes" for the first one, does that mean "Yes, the answer is correct" or "Yes, I DO have a brain" ... and if i choose "No", does that mean "No, the answer is incorrect" or "No, I DONT have a brain" ... which? :?

if you put yes or no before "i don't have brain " both will mean you don't have brain ...hehe
its like some one say
" i think you don't have brain " and you say "yes , i don't have.."

or some one ask "Do you have brain? " and you say " no , i don't have .."

But the first part of the sentence a minor sentence, it usually has very little to do with the rest of the sentence. i.e. 'Oh no! I don't have a brain' etc...

I'm another person who doesn't get this.

Putting 'yes' or 'no' in front of these phrases does make a difference to the meaning, but I don't know what that shows.

The first two don't make sense anyway.

Also, I don't know anyone who thinks English is an easy language. It's a very hard language to learn properly - many native speakers never master it. English spelling is famously crazy. For just about every grammatical rule there are loads of exceptions, and if anyone here can give a quick explanation of how to use English prepositions I'd love to hear it!

Peace

I agree with Messrs Gibson and Takumi. This is like one of those silly email thingies that some Pakistani with bad English spams my inbox with, in the vain hope that I'd find it funny. Hmm.

P.s. 'Messrs' is one of the most kickass words in the English language.

Dear boy, 'Messrs' is the plural of 'Mr'. As in 'Messrs Laurel and Hardy'.

Pass me some char. Then begone with you, what what.

Here's a little something I found on the internetz the other day...
There's no egg in eggplant or ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple.
English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France.
Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat.

We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square, and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth, beeth?
One goose, two geese. So one moose, two meese? One index, two indices.

If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?
Sometimes I think all the English speakers should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane.
In what other language do people recite at a play and play at a recital?
Ship by truck and send cargo by ship?
Have noses that run and feet that smell?
Park on driveways and drive on parkways?

How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? How can overlook and oversee be opposites, while quite a lot and quite a few are alike? How can the weather be hot as hell on one day and cold as hell another?

You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out, and in which an alarm clock goes off by going on.

People, not computers invented English, and it reflects the creativity of the human race (which, of course, is not a race at all).

That is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible. And why, when I wind up my watch, I start it, but when I wind up this essay, I end it!
