Learning Chinese

My 93 year old granddaddy often sends email forwards that he gets from who knows where. This one struck me as funny. Enjoy!

There were a couple more that I had to edit out due to profanity....I really am not sure that my grandddaddy actually reads all the things he forwards on -- at least he may not completely comprehend them!!

I too had to laugh and then felt very unpc!
Hope the eyes are working or should I say Yu Si So Be Dah Nao!

FUNNY!!! I think I'll take it to by students, let them laugh about it and THEN talk about being culturally sensitive!
