Thread: Chinese joke.

  1. #1

    Chinese joke.

    Two billionaires walking down the street.

    A says to B "if you eat that pile of shit over there I'll give you a billion dollars".

    B excitedly eats it. A pays up.

    A thinks " God damn it I can't believe I just lost a billion dollars. If only I can get it back. "

    B thinks "God damn that was the easiest billion I ever made. "

    They walk a bit further and B goes "hey, if you eat that pile of shit there I'll give you back a billion dollars."

    A eagerly eats it. B pays up.

    A few minutes later, A speaks up.

    "Dude. Did we both just eat shit for no reason?"

    And that is why China has the second highest GDP in the world...

    The joke is two part.

    1. First, two people literally ate shit for nothing. Some people often compete for the sake of competition rather than for an end purpose or monetary gains. So you have a lot of people who are business partners who end up screwing each other over and no one really gets anything out of it.

    2. China has been known to water down a lot of their statistics, from population, pollution to GDP. In this case, since each expenditure is 1B and it was expended twice, by some metrics it can be counted as 2B of expenditures and therefore 2B dollars worth of Gross Domestic Product. As such, it laughs at the fact that even though nothing really changed hands, there is a system in place that will likely incldue this sort of tomfoolery as GDP - Thus invalidating that China is the "second largest economy in the world by GDP" claim. (This is not an accurate representation of how GDP really works. It just makes fun of it)

    I liked your joke. Seemed somewhat self explanatory, even if one doesn't follow the ins and outs of the world financial climate.
    Having to explain it to someone is weak- as far as I'm concerned you either get it or you don't. BFD.

    Thanks for the explanation. Would you see this trade war as the tipping point for their house of cards economy?
