Tried translating a joke from Latvian.

John, a rural farmer, decided to visit the zoo in the capital with his family. He has a lot of fun, and comes back ecstatic. His neighbor Tolya asks him what he saw there.

“Well, I saw a giraffe.”

“What’s a giraffe?”

“Well, you know horses?”

“Yeah.”

“It’s like a horse, but really tall and with a long neck.”

“Okay, what else?”

“Zebra.”

“Zebra?”

“Well, you know horses?”

“Yeah.”

“It’s like a horse, but with stripes.”

“Okay, what else then?”

“I saw a hippo. “

“What’s that?”

“You know horses?”

“Yeah?”

“Like a horse, but big and fat.”

“Hm. Okay. Anything else?”

“Yes… a crocodile.”

“What’s a crocodile?”

“You know horses?”

“Yeah?”

“Nothing like one.”
