Hocine tibi habeas iocum?

My older son is starting Latin (and also Arabic) and sent me some Latin jokes...

Latin is a dead language,
As dead as it can be,
First it killed the Romans,
And now it's killing me.

And another one. For this one the word "ubi" means "where." This one is a play on English/Latin words:

Semper ubi,
Sub ubi.

So here's one for him, if he happens to read this post:

"What'll it be?" asked the bartender.

"A martinus," said the professor.

"Don't you mean martini?"

"If I wanted more than one I'd ask for more than one."
