Easy Joke Ten

"What's his name?"
This joke is very short and very easy, but it shows how real mistakes can be made when speaking English. Enjoy!
Bob told Betty that he had (1) an acquaintance with (2) a wooden leg named Smith. So Betty asked him "That's very (3) curious. What was the name of his other leg?" (1) somebody he knows, but not very well like a friend
(2) a fake leg (not real) - he must have lost his leg in a bad accident
(3) a little bit strange
Explanation: Bob should have said he had "an acquaintance named Smith with a wooden leg". The way he said it, it seems the wooden leg's name is Smith!
