I believe in learning a new language through short but interesting stories, such as the following joke - Turning off the Gas.
This is a simple joke that requires no additional explanation, however there are some necessary vocabularies you might need when reading it.
夫妻 [fu1 chai1] = 兩公婆 [leung5 gung1 po2] = married couple
丈夫 [jeung6 fu1] = 老公 [lou5 gung1] = husband
妻子 [chai1 ji2] = 老婆 [lou5 po4] = wife
火災 [fo2 joi1] = fire accident
洗手台 [sai2 sau2 toi4] = water faucet

A married couple went out for dinner. Suddenly, the wife shouted: “Oh! I forgot to turn off the gas. There could be a fire!”
To comfort her, the husband said: “It’s okay. Anyway, I also forgot to turn off the water faucet.”
