verbos frasales (8): chistes

Jokes with phrasal verbs.

a.- to get on well with someone  = llevarse bien con alguien

Two friends meet in the street:

John: Hullo, Peter. I hear you’ve bought your mother-in-law a jaguar.
Peter: Yes, I have.
John: But I thought you didn’t get on well with her.
Peter: And I don’t. The jaguar has already bitten her twice.

b.- to drop off = quedarse dormido (lit. caerse de un sitio)

Patient: Doctor, doctor, I suffer from insomnia, I can’t get any sleep at night, what can I do?.
Doctor: You can't get any sleep, I see. Well, my advice is: sleep on the edge of the bed and you’ll soon drop off.
Patient: But, but, doctor, I don’t want to drop, I just want to sleep.
Doctor: I never said you'd drop, I said you'd soon drop off. Don’t you know your phrasal verbs? To drop off means to fall asleep.
Patient: Oh, I see, thak you so much, doctor.
