    Jokes # 1

    Hi teachers,

    (1) Whenever I find the key to success, someone changes the lock.

    (2) The three fastest means of communication:
    1: Telephone
    2: Television
    3: Tell-a-woman

    (3) Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.

    I would like to ask if there is any grammatical mistake like symbols?

    Many thanks in advance.

    They all seem OK. Not very funny but OK.

    I would say that only number 2 would class as a "joke". The other two are puns/plays on words. #2 is also a play on words in a way, but it has a more jokey feel to it.
