国外幽默故事(笑话)集锦(376~380

(英汉对照)

Laughter, the Best Medicine.

“笑是良药。”

 

The streets were named

The landlord of the mobile-home park where I used to live was battling with state inspectors over what he thought were trivial concerns. Regulations required that the park’s three short streets have names. Finding no way around it, my landlord ordered signs and put them up.

The streets were named, in succession, “BUREAUCRATS,” “CAUSE,” “EXPENSE.”

——Kirby E. Jeske(Great Falls, Mont.)

376.街道命名

我所居住地方的汽车活动房停车场的老板经常与巡警为一些他认为是琐碎小事而争吵。按照管理规定,停车场的这三条短街道得有名称。发现周围没有办法,老板就做了三个牌子,把它们竖起来。

这三条短街道就被分别依次命名为 “官僚” “导致” “花钱”。

Have a good season

Every summer my husband practices his golf swing on our lawn, inevitably breaking a window or two. One year he had trouble with his slice; the number of broken window rose to four.

The following spring a parcel arrived, addressed to my husband. It was a box of golf balls. The enclosed note read: “Have a good season. From Mike,

 our window man.”

377.祝你有一个好的赛季

每年夏天我丈夫都要在我们的草坪上练习他的高尔夫挥杆,不可避免的要打破一两个窗子。有一年他苦恼于他的斜击;破坏窗子的数目也上升为四个。

第二年春天接到了一个包裹,收件人写的是我丈夫。那是一箱子高尔夫球。封皮上的便条上写着: “祝你有个好赛季。迈克,你的窗口人。”

our anniversary

 On a trip to Boston, my wife and I stayed at an elegant hotel. Our spacious room had two large beds that the maid turned down every night. The third day was our anniversary, and we exchanged cards, placing them on a table before going sightseeing.

When we returned that evening, we found fresh flowers in the room, along with tasty mints. Only one bed had been turned down.

378.我们的(结婚)周年纪念日

一次去波士顿旅行,我和妻子住在优雅的旅店。我们宽敞的房间里有两张大床,每晚都有女仆来掀开床罩。第三天是我们的(结婚)周年纪念日,我们互换了贺卡,出门观光之前就把贺卡放在桌子上。

当我们晚上归来时,发现屋子里除了美味糖果外,还有鲜花。只有一张床的床罩被掀开了。

An efficient way

Our son teaches at junior high school and attends college, while his wife runs a day-care center, and a Lamaze program. Their four children are active in sports. Understandably, their house usually looks as if a cyclone had torn through it. One day I stopped for a visit and was surprised to find everything tidy. “What happened?” I asked my son.

“I’ve finally found an efficient way to get the place cleaned,” he told me. “It’s simple. I get everyone together, and each person picks up 500 things!”

——Marian DeGennard(Princeville, Hawaii)

379一种有效的方法

我儿子教初中,还上大学,而他妻子开办了幼儿日托中心和一个心理助产教程。他们的四个孩子都热爱体育运动。可以理解,他们的屋子平常看起来就像狂风刮过一样。一天我到他们家里看望,惊奇地发现每样东西都摆放得整整齐齐的。“发生了什么事?”我问儿子。

“我终于找到了一种让屋子清整的有效方法,”他告诉我,“其实很简单,我把每个人都找来,每人整理好500 样事情。”

My husbands patched jeans

My husband had a favorite pair of jeans that he refused to throw out when the seat became worn. I sewed some colorful patches on the rear, and he continued to wear them.

One summer day we were traveling through New England and stopped at a rural grocery store. An elderly man was sitting on porch, lazily rocking in the heat. My husband’s patched jeans did not escape his notice. “Well, sonny,” he called out, “it’s easy to see where you do all your work from!”

380.我丈夫的补丁牛仔裤

我丈夫有条他喜欢的牛仔裤,屁股后面都磨破了也不想扔掉。我给他屁股上补了些彩色的补丁,他还继续穿。

一个夏天的日子,我们去新英格兰旅游,中途,进了一个乡村的小卖部。一位年龄较大的男子坐在门廊处,在热天里懒洋洋地摇晃着。我丈夫的补丁裤子没有逃过他的眼睛。“嗨,小伙子,”他大声说,“很容易看出你都在哪里工作过!”

——特鲁迪.外诺特(阿珂姆,华盛顿州)
