Tooth hurty

One of my staff came into the office this morning to tell me that he has to go to the dentist tomorrow at half-past-two.  If I tell you that he is British through and through, and is a native English speaker but his ethnicity is Chinese, you might understand why I found myself laughing.  (It is not that I'm not being a racist.) 

I'm just surprised that he looked unusually bewildered.  Normally he's way ahead of me when it comes to quick wits.

Apparently he had never heard that classic old schoolboy joke that used to be a favorite of my father's.

What time does a Chinese man go to the dentist?

I have been chucking to myself about it all day!
