Dumb Joke in Shanghainese
26 Jul 2006
After hearing lately about how YouTube is now the undisputed king of online video, I did a search for 上海话 (Shanghai dialect) to see what it would turn up. A measly two videos! Here’s the only one kinda worth watching:
Here’s a translation of the joke, in Mandarin and in English:
Two eggs were chatting in the refrigerator
One egg said to the other:
> 你看 这只蛋傻吧
“Look at that egg. Doesn’t he look dumb?
He’s covered in hair!”
The third egg was furious
and hit the first egg.
> 说 傻瓜 猕猴桃也不认识
He said, “You idiot! Don’t you know a kiwi fruit when you see one?”
