On Immigration


The teacher said, “These days, the Chinese people who have money, power, or knowledge have all emigrated abroad. Why is it that those of us without money and power remain in China? Because Mencius said, ‘The poor and humble can not move!’”

[Note: In this joke, the meaning of Mencius’ statement “Neither poverty nor humbleness can make him swerve from principle” is deliberately twisted.]
