Russian to share some country puns with you

Продолжаем тему о каламбурах. В предыдущем посте рассматривались puns, связанные с именами композиторов, а в этом рассмотрим puns, основанные на названиях стран и городов. Их в английском языке, кажется, намного больше.

Вот, к примеру, такой диалог (скетч из какого-то шоу):

Kids: US Hungary (us hungry)
Dad: Kuwait?! (could you wait!?)
Kids: Norway! US Hungary! (no way! us hungry!)
Kids: Bangladesh! (bang the dishes)
Dad: Canada Turkey Greece? (can of the turkey grease)
Kids: Oman, Norway! (oh man, no way!)
Dad: Panama Chile. (pan of my chili)
Kids: Yemen! (yeah man!)

I had to go to work and it was very chilly outside. So I grab some coffee and sweeten it with a cube of sugar. On the way to work, I ran into my friend Chad. He said 'Hey', and I said 'Yeah, man'.

'Yeah, well, you are gay!', I replied back to him.
'Oh, man', he muttured 'You are making me real angry!', he yelled.
He pushed me, and my coffee spilled all over my thigh.
