Father and Son Don’t Get Along

Another super-simple and very short children’s joke.

One thing to watch out for here that can be confusing is the way the word “分” is used here. Typically, one says “100分”, meaning that one received “100%” on a test. In this case, the student indicates that he wants the teacher to give him “5分”, which we can take to mean “5 stars” – not actually 5%.
