Lim Peh ka lu kong

You need to understand Hokkien in order to appreciate this.

From My InBox:

Dr. Quek made a routine house call to Mr. Lim, one of
his elderly patients.

He asks, "And how are you doing today, Mr. Lim?"

Mr. Lim replies, "I feel just fine, doc. But you know,
it's the strangest thing.

Every night when I get up to pang jio, the bathroom
light goes on for me automatically when I open the door!"

The doctor is worried that the old man is getting senile,
so he phones the man's son, and the son's wife answers.

The doctor tells her, "Mrs. Lim, I'm a little
concerned about your father-in-law.

It seems that when he gets up to urinate at night and
opens the bathroom door, the light somehow goes on...."

At which point, Mrs. Lim yells, "Aiyoh, Ah Seng!
Ah Pa pang jio in the fridge again!"

QUESTION: How do you know frogs are Hokkien?
ANSWER : Because when it's cold, they go
"kwah,kwah, kwah".

QUESTION : How do Hokkien prawns laugh?
ANSWER: Hae hae hae.

QUESTION: How do Hokkien fish laugh?
ANSWER: Hoo hoo hoo.

And here is a classic .....

QUESTION: What's the difference between Ang-mor and
Hokkien fairy Tales?

ANSWER: Ang-mor fairy tales begin with "Once upon a time..."

Hokkien fairy tales begin with "Lim Peh ka lu kong..."
