My Favorite English Joke in Korea

There was a car accident on a main road in downtown Seoul.  The driver of a vehicle swerved off the road and crashed into a tree. A foreign tourist, who was passing by on the sidewalk, saw the whole thing and ran over to assist the driver. He opened the door, concerned for the driver’s safety, to see if the man needed immediate medical attention. The foreigner asked the driver, “Sir, how are you?” The driver, badly shaken up, looked over at the foreigner and said, “I’m fine, thank you. And you?”

Why is this joke funny?  Simple...rote learning!  What is rote learning?  Go teach in Korea and you'll find out.
