“My neighbor blamed my gravel for making him fall, but it was his dumb asphalt”

"Asphalt” sounds like “ass fault.” A pun was posted on Reddit—Jokes on August 5, 2017:

“My neighbor blamed my gravel for making him fall, but it was his dumb asphalt.”

The “dumb asphalt” pun had been used before and has been printed on several images. “The word of the day is ‘asphalt’ as in ‘it’s your dumb asphalt we’re late’” was posted on Twitter on March 9, 2010.
