Why was 6 afraid of 7?

Q: Why was 6 afraid of 7?
A: Because 7, 8, 9.


This joke is also fairly common. The core of this joke is the fact that 8 is a homophone for ate. The reader hears both the sequence of numbers as well as the words seven ate nine at the same time. If you didn't guess it yet, this is a pun.

  1. This is one of my most favorite jokes. Especially when Yoda tells it. "Why was 8 afraid of 7? Because 6 7 ate".
