That's funny!

I don't know the cool whip joke - but it sounds intriguing - is it one
you can say here?

My best friend in Chicago was in Switzerland over some friends' place at
breakfast looking at the fruit jelly pot and she asked naturally if
there
were preservatives in the it... She speaks reasonably good french and
was
actually living in europe among friends to learn it. So she asked it in
French... Il y t'il des preservatifs dans la confiture?

Everyone at the table burst laughing except her!

Well, "preservatif" is translated in french as "condoms" not as "agents
conservateurs"!

If you know the "You know what's disgusting?" "Cool Whip" (US pseudo
mayo)
pot joke I do, you must be on the floor gone histerically laughing now!
ROTFL!
