    If you pronounce d6 in French, you get "day-cease".

    Giving you the two meanings "with several d6 dice rolls" and "with several casualties".

    Okay but "day-cease-day" doesn't sound like anything.

    Edit: and isn't the first "e" in "deceased" pronounced like the following "ea", anyway?

    TIL that an apostrophe followed by a "d" (without any vowels) is pronounced "day" in French.

    EDIT: Also without the apostrophe. Is that just what the letter's called there?

    The 'd stands in for -ed, not an isolated d, making for deceased. It's there to make it clearer what "d6 with French pronunciation" is meant to sound similar to.

    The joke was meant to be "French pronunciation turns d6 into another word in English".

    Yes. Well, it's pronounced "dé", so more like the "de" in "detterent" than "day".

    Okay, I got it. But, I am still confused about one thing. Isn't the "de" in "deceased" pronounced like John Dee's last name?

    No. The "decea" part of "deceased" does not sound like "Dee see". Its more like "duh see".

    English is ridiculous enough that you could pronounce the d in any way you wanted and still get the point across. Duh-ceased, dee-ceased, da-ceased, and so on all sound close enough for a groan inducing pun.

    English is a Germanic pidgin that learnt Latin from French to sound fancy.

    English is French set to German structure, but somehow thinks it's Latin.

    There's a video on how to pronounce most words in most languages. Don't think French escaped. YouTube is pretty great for educational work.

    I was driving in the country past a fire hall, and on the announcement board, where they post notes for upcoming events, it read:

    Time Traveler's Club monthly meeting:
    Last Wednesday at 7pm.

    I laughed for 3 miles.
    .....

    One day, this guy is sitting at home, watching TV. He hears a knock on the door. He gets up, answers the door, and doesn't see anything. So, he closes the door and sits back down. A moment later, there's another knock on the door. He sighs, gets up, and opens the door. No one. He looks around, and sees this snail down at his feet. So he picks it up and throws it as far as he can. A year later, he's watching TV again, and there's a knock at the door. He gets up, opens the door, and looks around, and sees the snail on his doormat. The snail looks at him and says, "Hey, man! Why'd you do that?"

    Time for some cringeworthy viking puns!

    The Fenris Wolf, the Midgard Serpent, and the Goddess Hel all had huge cosmological significance.
    But their father was low key.

    "Hello! Are you a goddess of love?"
    "I'm a Freya not."

    "Hello! Are you the goddess of spring?"
    "Idunn? No!"

    Why don't frost giants sail in longships?
    They don't know how to Thrym them!

    So why was Njord the god of the sea?
    Unlike the giants, he Noatun or two about ships.
