What do you think about:

In France, there is a Chinese proverb that says "..."?

Is it just a joke or something serious?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.


If there is a Chinese Proverb that is only used by the subgroup of chinese speakers in france, this could be totally serious. Otherwise, at least in Germany I know people saying "Old chinese proverb!" jokingly, often for some kind of common sense-based proverb-like thing they just made up.

  • Add the "In France" comment, and it's supposed to be even sillier. – user32753 Sep 25 '16 at 17:23
