Chinese take-away

Dad: "Listen to this! 'Ching Shih the Chinese pirate queen commanded over 20,000 to 40,000 pirates and went undefeated for years until 1810, when amnesty was offered to all pirates from the Chinese government. She ended her career that year, accepting an amnesty offer. She kept her loot, and opened a gambling house. She died in 1844, at the age of 69.'"
Son 2: "He he. 69."
Dad: "Really? That's what you're taking away from this?"
