Geez...! You better watch out, Amos. ;-)
The main thing wrong with that joke is this: the Chinese cannot pronounce "R"'s in words. It's the Japanese or the Koreans who tend to use that inflection that is crudely indicated in your joke's dialogue...because they CAN pronounce "R"'s just fine, but they have a lot of trouble with the "L" sound...and tend to convert it into an "R" sound, as in your joke.
