Jokes About Ancient Chinese People

Some More

Once there was an old grandmother who believed in taboo. On New Year's Day and other festival days, she would try only to say nice things, and never let the word "no" rashly fall from her mouth.

One lunar New Year's Day, as soon as the grandmother got up, her little granddaughter passed her a bowl of sweet rice porridge. She drank it up joyfully.

"Grandma, will you take another bowl of rice porridge?" asked the granddaughter

"All right," replied the grandmother.

Some More The little girl passed her the second bowl of rice porridge and quickly she drank it.

"Some more rice porridge?" asked the granddaughter.

The grandmother thought that during New Year's Day she couldn't say "no", and so she replied promptly, "O.K., I'll drink a third bowl." In this way the grandmother drank six bowls, and her stomach was like a big drum.

The little girl who wasn't very sensible still asked persistently, "Grandma, would you like to drink some more sweet rice porridge?"

The grandmother couldn't help shaking her hand, and said hurriedly, "No, no, no more, no more! If I drink any more, I'll bloat myself to death."


Nothing in the Head

A scholar was preparing to take the civil examinations. His wife was very puzzled by his constant worrying.

"Look at you, you worthless wretch," she said. "You probably think that it's more difficultNothing in the Head for a man to write an essay than for a woman to give birth to a child."

"It is easy for you women to give birth to children," the scholar sighed.

"How's that?" she asked.

"You women can bear children easily because you carry the child in your stomach," the scholar said. "But I have nothing in my head, so how do you expect me to think of something to write?"



A Cursive Hand

Prime Minister Zhang was fond of handwriting, but he didn't put in a lot of effort to do his exercises. Everybody sneered at his bad handwriting, and the Prime Minister himself really didn't care.

One day he happened to draft a beautiful sentence and at once wielded his writing brush to write it down, indeed, there were dragons flying and snakes dancing all over the paper. Then he ordered his nephew to copy it.

A Cursive Hand When beginning to copy, his nephew stared tongue-tied and did not know where to start. The young man had to take the manuscript back to the Prime Minister.

"Uncle, I can't read your handwriting, please tell me what words they are."

The Prime Minister read his cursive hand a long time, and did not know what Chinese characters they were, either. He then turned to blame his nephew. "Why didn't you come earlier to ask me? I myself have forgotten the words which I've written."
