English Jokes (2):

Teacher: Today, we're going to talk about

the tenses. Now, if I say "I am beautiful," which tense is it?
Student: Obviously it is the past tense.


So literally speaking ‘I am beautiful’ is present tense. But according to the student, he believes that the teacher is speaking of her past. Meaning that, in his eyes, the teacher current is not beautiful, but in the past, when she was younger, she might have been.

Present tense: I am beautiful
Past tense: I was beautiful

This is funny because the teacher isn't beautiful now, but maybe she was beautiful when she was younger.

    @Gino haha yes, it is very subjective. That’s kind of the theme of the joke. The teacher was making an example, she wasn’t even specifically talking about herself. The student took it as her talking about herself, and henceforth created his response/joke. The looks are also based on his viewpoint.

    @Jimmy You did very well! I like how you took your time to pronounce everything. I also like how you read into the text and spoke the correct version. I didn’t even realize I’d made a typo.

    @Jimmy 不一样,oral更倾向于口腔,所以用spoken更合适,你可以问下说英语国家的人
