Puns are practically impossible to translate (I don't know how they do it in Asterix)
This is the best site on haiku I could find quickly. Check particularly the links to A few practical rules and The puns and plays of word
from Faldage's link
some nifty names of the moons
need time to ponder.
formerly known as etaoin...
ladymoon, it's nice to see you around again.
What I'd like to know is: on what authority did your teacher assert this? What credentials does s/he possess? What foreign languages does this person speak? Have you mentioned our collective response in class?
OP I haven't mentioned it yet because we currently have someone else teaching the class while the first is in Japan (telling them they can't pun?) He's also spent time in Germany. (I will not assume he speaks German, but I think he lived there eight years.)
Does anyone know a term for a bilingual pun?
Such as: Why is a virgin like a sneeze?
I don't know, Perfesser. Why *is a virgin like a sneeze?
When a little girl sneezed, her Dad said "Gesundheit!"
The little girl protested:"Daddy, Gesundheit hurts!"
Arright. If she's a virgin, how's she know gesundheit hurts?
Her big sister told her.
Die ganze Welt ist mit weh voll! 'tsuris!
