This is a Mandarin joke I found recently:

天不怕,地不怕,只怕广东人说普通话!

Translation: I don't fear heaven, I don't fear hell, I only fear people from Guangdong speaking Putonghua!

(Guangdong is a province of China where Cantonese is spoken, and Putonghua is standard Mandarin)

I think the joke is that it's hard to understand Guandongers when they speak. Writing materials aren't always available.

As for me: I don't fear Heaven; I don't fear Hell; I fear only Yankees misusing "y'all" to a singular addressee.
