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

Beginner Chinese Passages and Chinese Kids JokesOne 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%. The Chinese title of this joke is “父子不和”.
