My wife gave me some bad news today
“But,” she said, “I bought your favorite soy sauce to help cheer you up.”
“Great,” I said. “Just Kikkoman when he’s down, huh?”
I’m very soy for that pun. I’ll just wok away now.

My friend ran out of soy sauce, but I didn’t make fun of him.

A man tells his wife he’s not feeling well.
When she comes home from the grocery store, she brings him his favorite soy sauce to cheer him up. He says “Oh, I see, Kikkoman when he’s down”.
