Read rat?

I think you are puzzled with “Acts as the rat-tail beaten with stick for three times without blood coming out!”--------------In Chinese 念书(nian-shu) means ’read book' which often refers to ‘go to school’. But 书 (shu) sounds like 鼠 (rat)! ----------So some people may joke a bad student in this way: "You read rat even rat-tail! ---------------You could not see blood coming out when you hit the long tail with a stick. That means you are too stupid or naughty for schooling from which you would harvest nothing!

So that is harsh saying to ears which has hurt many children‘s feeling!:Q

    I can see that you have agreed with me in your mind, but you tried to denfense the current regime, that is another bad point of the now education. People do not want to tell the truth.

    kevinruud: it is a time that all of us must go through, it is nothing to joke about. Without a car, how can you tell others you are rich and able?
    New things always take place like TV drama washing our brain!
    The era is developing rapidly that brings us too much enjoyment plus little surprise!
