If you understand Cantonese and Hokkien, you'll understand this joke

So, a Cantonese driver was fetching two Hokkien guys. The meter bil was like so expensive and the two Hokkien guys started mumbling to each other. The Cantonese driver was so curious that he stared at both of them. Until one of them said, "Nevermind lah, kuku jibai niama." And the Cantonese driver had a big quarrel with the other two Hokkien guys.

By the way, I got that joke from Lowyat. Kuku Jibai Niama means it's only once in a blue moon. "Kuku" means very long period of time. "Ji Bai" means one time only. And "Niama" means its only one time. Don't get the message wrong.
