A Mexican Magician
« on: September 17, 2015, 03:47:32 pm »
A mexican magician tells his audience, "I will disappear on the count of three." He counts down.. "Uno... dos..." And then he disappears, without a tres.
Best wishes,

Well, the joke pretends to be ingenious, however, in my own opinion, it fails because never in the world the pronounciation of "tres" and "trace" is the same.

Believe me, I never pronounce these words equally (I am a native Spanish speaker).
