Default Más útil que el angel guardián de los Kennedy.

I came across a list of comparisons "más .... que"/ "menos ...que" here http://www.ciao.es/chistes_cortos__Opinion_1629142

I hope you find it mas útil que el angel guardián de los Kennedy. Y menos aburrido que bailar con la hermana.

Some of the comparisons are a bit rude. "Mas blanco que el culo de una monja." This is based on a belief that nuns don't sunbathe much?

Well culo means arse/ass rather than a more genteel English word like bottom.

Diez sobre diez para/por jugar con palabres Someone help please

La misma nota para/por Stephen.

(Lo siento, no tengo tiempo para/por comprobar el uso de por y para)


Segurament hay juegos de palabras en español, quizás hay uno de los amigos españoles que quiere empezar un hilo nuevo con juegos de palabras españoles (con explicaciónes, por favor)

These puns are funny! I think English speakers have more fun with puns than Spanish speakers do. Spanish can be so literal at times.

'Diez sobre diez por jugar con palabras' es una expresión correcta, pero suena más natural 'Un diez por el juego de palabras'
