Question by David L: Please explain this joke?
Here is the joke i do not understand…
What is the usual composition of a typical Dogon family?
Mother, father, two children and a French Anthropologist!
perhaps i am not laughing because i am unsure of the meaning of the word “Dogon”
& also the precise meaning of the word “anthrapologist”
.. thank you much.. David
Answer by Drew
This should help:
The joke is that anthropoligists are incessantly poking around at indigenous tribes like the Dogon, so much so that they become part of family life. Like many jokes, it’s pretty close to being true.
