Paf le chien et Annie: C'est l'histoire d'Annie et de son chien qui traversent la route sans regarder. Une voiture arrive et Paf le chien, et Pif Annie!

English translation of Paf le chien et Annie: C'est l'histoire d'Annie et de son chien qui traversent la route sans regarder. Une voiture arrive et Paf le chien, et Pif Annie!

Paf the dog and Annie: It's the story of Annie and her dog who cross the road without looking. A car comes and Paf the dog, and Pif Annie!

This joke is based on the French expressions 'Paf' and 'Pif' which are both onomatopoeic sounds implying a collision or impact, akin to 'Bang' or 'Boom' in English. This joke relies on wordplay and surprise. Annie and her dog are not paying attention and cross the road. When a car comes, 'Paf' (Bang) the dog, and 'Pif' (Boom) Annie, indicating they were hit by the car. In France, 'Pif' is also a slang term for nose, and 'Paf' is a term used when something suddenly happens, so the joke could also be interpreted as humorously melodramatic surprise.
