JOKE: Why couldn’t the pony sing?

ANSWER: He was a little hoarse!

EXPLANATION:  This is another example of a homonym.  A little “horse” is called a pony, and being a little “hoarse” means you’re having trouble speaking (or singing!) because you’re losing your voice.


  • As always, playing math games at home is a great way to reinforce math skills learned in school.
