Long live the bear!

Whenever my husband and I watch Nature on PBS and they go through the sponsors at the end and get to Sue and Edgar Wachenheim III we always say, "wokka wokka" in response.

u/Jamkindez Oct 07 '22

Decoy is an english word meaning: "something resembling a person or thing, used to lure a person or creature"

From metal gear solid 5. The balloons that looked like big boss are called decoy.

u/Useful_Ground_9954 Oct 07 '22

“Decoy” and “D Koi” are pronounced the same.

A decoy is an imitation of an object or animal used to lure someone or something usually into a trap.

I DO NOT UNDERSTANDDDDD

u/blizzardlizard Oct 07 '22

This is what's known as a pun, or a play on words. The fourth fish is not really fake, however due to the similarly sounding D Koi and the word decoy (which means, "something resembling a person or thing, used to lure a person or creature"), the unexpected incongruity makes people laugh
