* There's a [[OverlyLongGag really long joke]] in spanish that answers the question "What do a cow and an elevator have in common?". After a string of plays on words and relating objects to other ideas (gold mines, from gold you make rings, rings go in fingers, fingers have nails...) only for the punchline taking you to the word "eye".
