TO JOKE: meaning and examples

Good morning. Yesterday we explained the expression You're kidding! (used to say that you do not believe or agree with what someone is saying). A synonym for this expression is You're joking!. Today we are going to explain this expression. Today's words are: to joke; a joke (verb; noun) It means: to say things that are intended to make people laugh; to say something that is not true, to see if someone will believe you; something that you say or do that is intended to make people laugh. Example 1: You should invite Henry to the dinner party. He's very funny and he's good at telling jokes. He'll make people laugh. Example 2: Rebecca, don't be angry with me! I was only joking when I said I thought you were bossy! Example 3 Please stop joking. This is serious business and we need to talk about it. I wanted to remind you again that you can get a year's subscription to the Daily Vitamin Plus! for 29 Euros if you sign up before April 1st. If you decide that you don't want the subscription during the first 10 days, you can cancel and we'll give you your money back. We're not joking. Have a fun-filled day!
