I have been living in China for a few years studying Chinese. Most of the jokes Chinese people tell me simply cannot be translated into English, but here is one that I heard which is pretty funny in English as well. One day a man was walking down the street. Suddenly, in front of him, he saw a big, black, fierce-looking dog. The man froze and didn't dare move. There was a woman standing next to the dog. The man asked the woman, "Does your dog bite?" The woman replied, "no, my dog doesn't bite". At that moment, the dog leapt forward and bit the man. He was furious and screamed at the woman, "I thought you said your dog doesn't bite!" The woman replied,"this isn' t my dog."
