We just did a live English lesson about Feelings and Emotions on YouTube and this was the joke that appeared:

Jokes can sometimes be difficult to understand when learning another language so don’t worry if you don’t understand THIS joke. I will try to explain it a little.

What do you call a sad strawberry?

– A blue berry

To feel BLUE is an English idiom that means to feel sad.

A blueberry is actually the name of another fruit.
Here is a picture of some strawberries and some blueberries.

The difference between a strawberry and a blueberry with pictures - Learn English Vocabulary

There are many other types of berries such as blackberries, raspberries, gooseberries, and more. (You can see more types in our English lesson about fruit)

So a strawberry is a type of berry.

If the strawberry is sad … you can also say it feels blue.

So it is a type of sad berry

So we changed the first part of the name strawberry to make it sound like a blue berry … a sad berry.

This sounds similar to the name of the other fruit: the blueberry (written with one word)
