ChatGPT delivers an English joke in English and Mandarin|ChatGPT說笑話有模有樣


Asking ChatGPT to tell a joke, I'm amused and impressed with the AI voice bot's ability to deliver the punchline in Mandarin so well, though with the punchline rushed without the all-important pause.

In Mandarin, the exclusively English metalinguistic joke (word play) would have been lost but for the transcreation relying on a different pair of homophones in Chinese, where "fake noodle" and "fake face" [of a person] sound the same. This is truly a stroke of genius!
