Yeah, "chor" is a really bad spelling of "Short" and "de las Selva" means "of the jungle". Plus, when you read "chor" it kind of sound like "George". So, the father says: "Son, why are you in your underwear, go put on a short" and the son says: "Short? Short (George) of the Jungle?" It is a really bad joke.

It's lovely to see word play in other languages :)

btw amaponian, your question might be more appropriately phrased as 'Can anyone understand...' (Greetings to you from Australia.)

Yes... It's a bad joke. But I laughed out loud when my 2-years-old son gave me that answer... ¿chor de la selva? [GREETINGS FROM VENEZUELA] [LOVE&FRIENDSHIP]
