“How much to buy a singing ensemble?” (choir joke)

"A choir” sounds like the word “acquire.” A joke was posted on Twitter by Terry F on February 27, 2018:

ME: How much to buy a singing ensemble?
PRODUCER: You mean a choir?
ME: Fine, how much to acquire a singing ensemble?

“Daddy, what’s acquire?”
It’s when you obtain, buy something.
“it doesn’t involve singers?”
Oh, you mean a choir. Stupid English language.
