Two mad men and the rails

Beißen zwei Irre in eine Bahnschiene, sagt der Eine: "Man, ist die hart!"
Sagt der andere: "Versuch's mal da hinten. Da ist 'ne Weiche."

Ok first of all: this should be a Joke. In Jokes, there's often an inverted word order by which you can often smell a line coming. Beißen goes before the subject here. Swap zwei Irre and Beißen, then you get the normal word order. Same for the second line: Sagt der andere <-> Der andere sagt.

Now, to get the joke, you need the vocabulary:

die Bahnschiene = the rail
die Weiche = track switcher on a railroad track
weich = soft

Eine Weiche has a double meaning here. You can make a noun from an adjective: This piece is hard. But here is a soft one. In German, simply capitalize the adjective: die weiche Schiene -> die Weiche.

HaHa!
