看笑话学英语:我们分享一切

2016-12-20 23:48[趣味英语] 来源: 评论:

  这是一则阿根廷的笑话,但是在小编看来它称不上是笑话,不如就当做一个温情的故事来看吧……

  We Share Everything

  An elderly couple goes to Burger King, where they carefully split a burger and fries.

  A trucker takes pity on them and offers to buy the wife her own meal.

  "It's all right," says the husband. "We share everything."

  A few minutes later, the trucker notices that the wife hasn't taken a bite.

  "I really wouldn't mind buying your wife her own meal," he insists.

  "She'll eat," the husband assures him. "We share everything."

  Unconvinced, the trucker implores the wife, "Why aren't you eating?"

  The wife snaps, "Because I'm waiting for the teeth!"

  我们分享一切

  一对老夫妇在汉堡王餐厅吃饭,他们小心翼翼地将汉堡和薯条分成两份。

  一个卡车司机非常同情他们,就提议想给老太太单独点一份。

  “没关系的。”老先生说,“我们分享一切。”

  几分钟后,卡车司机注意到老太太还没动口吃一点东西。

  他再次对老先生说,“我真的不介意请您妻子吃一顿……”

  “她会吃的,”老先生向他保证,“我们分享一切。”

  司机不太相信,恳求老太太,“你为什么不吃一点?”

  老太太咂咂嘴,“我在等他的假牙。”

  【注释】

  1. take pity on 怜悯,同情,例:take pity on the weak 怜惜弱者

  2. 一起来学习一下convince这个词:

  a. 使相信,使确信

  convince sb. of sth. 例:The officials were eager to convince us of the safety of the nuclearreactors. 官员们急切想要让我们相信核反应堆是安全的。

  b. 说服(某人做某事)= persuade

  convince sb. to do sth. 例:I've been trying to convince Jean to come with me. 我一直在尝试说服Jean和我一起去。
