Où dimanche vient-il avant jeudi? Dans le dictionnaire.

English translation of Où dimanche vient-il avant jeudi? Dans le dictionnaire.

Where does Sunday come before Thursday? In the dictionary.

This is a play-on-words joke exploiting the different interpretations of the word 'before'. While 'before' can indicate time sequence such as Sunday comes before Thursday in a week, it can also denote order in an alphabetic sequence, as in a dictionary, where 'Sunday' (dimanche in French) comes before 'Thursday' (jeudi in French) due to the alphabetical order.
