Completely like me:\

Hello, admins!
We need more jokes in this section to learn with a relaxed state of mind! ;)

It's must be one of Gordon's jokes !

Thanks
It was nice.

It was so useful!

Does it mean - why do you try to do the thing that is nonsense?

Hello Saren,

This is a common kind of joke. When a joke asks 'what you get when you cross', 'cross' means something like 'mix' or 'combine'. If you combine the words 'ants' and 'ticks', it sounds like the word 'antics'. It's not really about combining the insects -- it's about combining the words.

This is called a play and words and is a common type of joke, though it's not very easy to follow!

All the best,
