哄堂大笑 【hōng táng dà xiào】

Recommended Posts

There was an official called Feng Xiang in Song Dynasty. One day, he came into the court in a pair of new boots. A colleague asked him, “How much does your boost cost?” He lifted one foot and says, “900.” The colleague said surprisingly, “Why would my boosts cost 1,800?” Feng lifted another foot and said, “This one cost 900 too.” People in the court all laughed.

 [Definition] When people in the house/room all laugh.
