Hi, everybody. Hi! So I don t have too much time up here, before my green card expires. See I grew up in a poor neighborhood in China. The middle school that I went to one year decided to pave the dirt roads with bricks and cement. And the students were required to bring bricks to school and ...We worked really hard for 3 weeks and finally we built a road. Years later, I heard about the term: child labor. I was like, what?! Those kids got paid?!
嗨，大家好啊!嗨!那个 我能表演的时间不多，因为我绿卡马上要过期了。我是在中国的穷乡僻壤长大的。我们初中某年突然决定要修整土路，铺上砖头和水泥，让学生们带砖头到学校来 我们玩命地干了三个礼拜终于把路修好了。多年以后我听说了这个词：童工。我立马就惊讶了，啥?!那些小孩干活还有钱拿?
I got a D minus. But I read that younger kids nowadays can t even read the analog watches any more. They can only read the digital ones. I was like, how are they gonna report the locations of hot chicks in the future? It s gonna be like, Hot chick, 3 o clock. I can t stay that long.
我拿到的只是D-。我看报道，如今的小孩都不会看手表了。他们只能看懂电子表。我心想，等他们长大以后该如何报告辣妹的位置啊?别人说， 辣妹在三点钟方向 。我不能待那么久的。
So I came to the US for college and I was really into science, which really helped me in the romance department. Like once I asked this girl out and she said, no. I said, are you sure? And she said to me, hey Joe, NO means NO. I said, well... it also means Nitric Oxide.
And one year, I went to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. Here s something you guys should know about me. I don t approve of nudity in public. But when it happens, I want to be there.
And when I first came to the United States, I took a English as a second language class. And the teacher there was too lazy to remember the students names. So he just handed out a list of American names for us to choose from. And by the time I got the list, there were only two names left, so I just picked Joe instead of Jake. And the other day, I told that story to my son, Jake.
So my son is four years old now. But he still has a lot of growing-up to do. Sometimes I look at my son, I was like, wow, this gentleman contributes nothing to society. And I have to pretend that I m impressed by everything he does. I was like, wow, you walked half a block by yourself? That s amazing! But in the back of my mind, I was like, big deal! When I was a kid, I built a road!
