Jokes From Ancient China

How Big It Has Become Overnight?

One day a scholar taught his son to read the Chinese word "one". (Chinese word "one" is formed by a horizontal line) Soon the boy leant it by heart.

The next day while the scholar was wiping the table, with his wet rag he wrote on the table top a "one" with a very long stroke to quiz his son. The boy could not read it at all.

"This is the word "one" I taught you to read yesterday, isn't it?" said the scholar.

"Oh!. But how big it has become overnight!" said the boy in surprise.

(Compiled and translated by Liu Jianting et al.)
