Rolls off the Tongue tries to answer the question What's So Funny? We present jokes and explain why they are funny; We present Rebuses and ask you to figure them out. And we take a very close look English idiomatic expressions.
Idioms are the weirdest part of the English language. They never mean what they say. They "roll off the tongue" without stopping at the brain.
