Taiwanese Tourist at US Immigration

2006-07-03 00:00

  A Taiwanese man with very poor, practically no, English knowledge once visited the US. His name happened to be: Teng Xiao Ping.

  At the Immigration, the officer asked him a few questions to verify his true intention of coming to the US:

  - First he was asked: “What is the last name of our first President?” Not knowing English neither what was the question, he guessed they must have asked him for his family name.

  So he replied:“Wa Sing Teng”。 (in Hokkien meaning My Last Name is Teng)。 The officer heard of “Washington!” (same sound) so passed him of the first question.

  - Second question was:“What do you come to the US for?” This time the Taiwanese thought, naturally he would be asked of his first name.

  So he replied:“Xiao Ping.” The officer heard of: “Shopping!” so nodded and proceeded with his third question. “What car do u drive back home?”

  The tourist thought he was asked of his marital status, so he exclaimed: “Wa Bo Bo”。 (in Hokkien meaning I have no wife)。 And the officer heard of:“Volvo!” So smiled with compliment and asked again.

  - The fourth question was:“Who is the most popular basket ball player here in the US?” By this time our Taiwanese friend was getting a bit impatient and annoyed hence shouted:“Mai Ho Wa Ja Dan”。 (meaning Don't let me here wait)。

  The officer heard of:“Michael Jordan!” With great appreciation of this tourist's wide knowledge, the officer let him passed without further harrassment.
