There once was a user
Named pukki who read
A conundrum that weighed
Heavier than the thickest of lead

Dashing to the rescue
Soopiefox took to the lead
As he presented a solution
For pukki to read

No offense to soopfox, but this is a comment actually worthy of three hundred thumbs.

Beautiful poem. Very deep

I don't know why I wrote it as "soopie", but be prepared for English Teachers to identify you as one with an identity crisis.

the words "lead" and "read" can be pronounced in two different ways depending on how it was used. Example:

"Lead is a sort of metal".
"I have read this book before".
Here the two words rhyme.

"I will lead you to a conclusion".
"I will read this book anyway".
Here the two words have another meaning and sound, but still rhymes.

Hope it helped.

380+ thumbs for a simple explanation?

Are people here retarded or something? How could people NOT get it?

******* dyslexia?

an explanation of the joke got thumbed this much? Did people really not understand it or something?

People think knowledge is a treasure discovered by few?
User avatar #449 to #448 - thedarkestrogue (03/03/2013) [-]
I guess that makes as much sense as anything else.
Common sense, after all, is no longer common.

The same thing happened to me a while back. My comment made it to number six, I think, just for explaining how putting the emphasis on different words can change the meaning of a sentence to seven different things.

spelled phonetically

"Led is a sort of metal"
"I have_ red_ this book before"

"I will leed you to a conclusion"
"I will reed this book anyway"

Hopefully that helps some more, and doesn't confuse anyone

I take that "phonetically" means how it is pronounced/how it sounds when pronounced.

how do you spell the past-tense of lead?

or! I really want the past tense of lay... erm like "I had lied down." layed down?
User avatar #452 to #122 - sinonyx (03/03/2013) [-]
lied down and layed down are two different things

one is you yourself are lying down, the other is you setting something down

What about Chinese people? Don't they say l instead of r and r instead of l?

Thanks man, helped me understand the joke big time :)
thumb for you.

Read, as in present tense of the verb read, rhymes with lead, as in the present tense of the verb lead and read, as in past tense of the verb read rhymes with lead as in the name of the element, lead. Hope that helped! Pic unrelated.
