De quelle couleur sont les parapluies quand il pleut? Ils sont tout verts!

English translation of De quelle couleur sont les parapluies quand il pleut? Ils sont tout verts!

What color are the umbrellas when it rains? They are all green!

This joke hinges on the play of words in French. 'Verts' in French means 'green', however, 'vert' can also refer to 'wet' or 'damp', which is a common state of umbrellas during rain. So instead of answering about the color, the joke is misdirection to refer to the condition of the umbrella as being wet when it rains.
