"What makes the Leaning Tower of Pisa lean?"

"It never eats!"



The key to understanding this joke is the word lean.

Lean has two meanings:

Lean (verb) means 'to slope to one side/ not straight' (as you can see, the tower isn't straight).

Lean (adjective) means to be thin, healthy and not fat.'
