The article is saying that both Good Luck Charlie and The Big Bang Theory used the same "Here's your cat. And here's your $20." joke. Did that really happen in both shows, or is it some weird copy-and-paste error? Is this some old, well-known joke?

God no. As much as I love XKCD, it often makes incredibly poor page images.

This is one of those times.

Can somebody please translate the Chinese example in the Real Life section? This is an English wiki, you can use examples from other languages, but they need to be explained in English

So Ambiguous Syntax would be the parent trope to things like Who's on First? and several grammatical problems like ambiguous pronouns, misplaced commas, etc?

Additionally there could be cases where it contains none of the children but is still ambiguous.
