I Wasn't Asleep

   When a group of women got on the car, every seat was already occupied. The conductor noticed a man who seemed to be asleep, and fearing he might miss his stop, he nudged him and said: "Wake up, sir!"

   "I wasn't asleep," the man answered.

   "Not asleep? But you had your eyes closed."

   "I know. I just hate to look at ladies standing up beside me in a crowded car."

我没有睡着

  当一群妇女上车之后,车上的座位全都被占满了。售票员注意到一名男子好象是睡着了,他担心这个人会坐过站,就用肘轻轻地碰了碰他,说:“先生,醒醒!”

    “我没有睡着。”那个男人回答。

    “没睡着?可是你眼睛都闭上了呀?”

    “我知道,我只是不愿意看到在拥挤的车上有女士站在我身边而已。”

Only cash and credit cards

    When a man called a motel and asked how much they charged for

Does the dog know the proverb, too?

    The little boy did not like the look of the barking dog.

    "It's all right," said a gentleman, "don't be afraid. Don't you know the proverb: Barking dogs don't bite?"

    "Ah, yes," answered the little boy. "I know the proverb, but does the dog know the proverb, too?"

Where is the father?

    Two brothers were looking at some beautiful paintings.

    "Look," said the elder brother. "How nice these paintings are!"

    "Yes," said the younger, "but in all these paintings there is only the mother and the children. Where is the father?"

    The elder brother thought for a moment and then explained, "Obviously he was painting the pictures."

A Smart Housewife.

  A smart housewife was told that there was a kind of stove which would only consume half of the coal she was burning. She was very excited, and said: "That'll be terrific! Since one stove can save half of the coal, if I buy two, no coal will be needed!"

精明的家庭主妇

  一位精明的家庭主妇听人说有一种炉子用起来可以比她现在用的炉子省一半的煤。她听了大为兴奋,说:“那太好了!一个炉子可以省一半的煤,那么如果我买两个炉子的话,不就可以把煤全都省下来了吗?”

But the teacher cried

   The six-year-old John was terribly spoiled . His father knew it, but his grandma doted on him. He hardly left her side. And when he wanted anything, he either cried or threw a temper tantrum. Then came his first day of school, his first day away from his grandmother's loving arms.

  When he came home from school his grandma met him at the door.

  "Was school all right?" she asked, "Did you get along all right? did you cry?"

  "Cry?" John asked. "No, I didn't cry, but the teacher did!"

可是老师哭了

  六岁的约翰娇生惯养。他的父亲知道这一点,可他的祖父母仍然宠着他。这孩子几乎寸步不离他的祖母。他想要什么不是哭,就是闹。他第一天上学才离开祖母的怀抱。

  约翰放学了,他奶奶在门口接他并问道:“学校怎么样?你过的好吗?哭了没有?”

  “哭?”约翰问,“不,我没哭,可老师哭了。”

One Engine Left

  A 747 was halfway across the Atlantic when the captain got on the loud speaker, "Attention, passengers. We have lost one of our engines, but we can certainly reach London with the three we have left. Unfortunately, we will arrive an hour late as a r
esult."

  Shortly thereafter, the passengers heard the captain's voice again, "Guess what, folks. We just lost our third engine, but please be assured we can fly with only one. We will now arrive in London three hours late."

  At this point, one passenger became furious. "For Pete's sake," he shouted, "If we lose another engine, we'll be up here all night!"

只剩一个引擎

  一架747客机正在跨越大西洋时,喇叭里传来了机长的声音:“旅客们请注意,我们的四个引擎中有一个丢失了。但剩下的三个引擎会把我们带到伦敦的。只是我们要因此晚到一小时 。” 过了一会儿,旅客们又听到机长的声音:“各位,你们猜怎么啦 ?我们刚又掉了第三个引擎。但请你们相信好了。只有一个引擎我们也能飞,但要晚三个小时了。” 正在这时,一位乘客非常气愤地说:“看在上帝的份上,如果我们再掉一个引擎,我们就要整夜都要呆在天上了。”

Logic Reasoning

  A fourth-grade teacher was giving her pupils a lesson on logic.

  "Here is the situation," she said. "a man is standing up in a boat in the middle of a river, fishing. He loses his balance, falls in, and begins splashing and yellin
g for help. His wife hears the commotion, knows that he can't swim, and runs down to the bank. Why do you think she ran to the bank?"

  A girl raised her hand and asked, "to draw out all of his savings?"

逻辑推理

  小学四年级的教师正在给学生们上一堂逻辑课。她举了这么一个例子:“有这样一种情况,一个男人在河中心的船上钓鱼,突然失去重心掉进了水里。于是他开始挣扎并喊救命。他的妻子听到了他的喊声,知道他并不会游泳,所以她就急忙跑向河岸。谁能告诉我这是为什么?” 一个女生举手答道,“是不是去取他的存款?”

  [注]bank在英语中除了我们平时很熟悉的“银行”之外,还有“河岸”的意思。

The preacher was vexed because a certain member of his congregation always fell asleep during the sermon.

  As the man was snoring in the front row one Sunday, the preacher determined he would teach him not to sleep during the sermon. So, in a whisper, he asked the congreg
ation. "All who want to go to heaven,please rise." Everyone got up except the snorer. After whispering "Be seated", the minister shouted at the top of his voiced, "All those who want to be with the devil, please rise."

  Awaking with a start, the sleepy-head jumped to his feet and saw the preacher standing tall and angry in the pulpit, "Well, sir," he said, "I don't know what we're voting on, but it looks like you and me are the only ones for it."

  瞌睡者

  牧师非常生气,因为总有一个人在他说教时打瞌睡。一个星期天,正当坐在前排的那个人又在瞌睡时,牧师决定要好好教育他一下,让他不要再在布道时睡觉。于是他低声对信徒们说:“想去天堂的人,都请站起来吧。”所有的人都站了起来——当然,除了那个打瞌睡的人。在低声说过请坐后,牧师高声喊道:“想去下地狱的人请站起来!”打瞌睡的人被这突然的喊叫声惊醒了,他站了起来。看到牧师高站在教坛上,正生气的看着他。这个人说道:“噢,先生,我不知道我们在选什么,但看上去只有你和我是候选人。”

  THE SCHOOL HEALTH FORMS had been distributed to the students with an error---the word "Sex" had been spelled with an "o". One mother, filling out the form for her son, wrote in the blank next to "Sox": "Usually brown."


  某学校发给学生的健康调查表里有个错别字——把“性别”的“性”字写成了“袜”字。一位母亲在为她的儿子填写表格时,在“袜别”的那栏填上了:“棕色为主。”

  [注] 英语中sex(性)与sox(袜)只有一个字母之差。

  When the young waitress in the café in Tom's building started waving hello everyday. Tom was flattered, for she was at least 15 years younger than he. One day she waved and beckoned to Tom again. When Tom strolled over, she asked, "Are you single?"


  "Why, yes," Tom replied, smiling at her broadly.

  "So is my mom," she said. "Would you like to meet her?"

  约会

  在汤姆工作的大楼里有一个咖啡屋,那儿总有一位小姐每天都和他打招呼。汤姆有些受宠若惊,因为这位小姐看上去至少比他年轻15岁。一天她又对汤姆招手并示意汤姆过去。于是汤姆走了过去。她问道,“您现在是单身吗?” “对,是单身,”汤姆满脸堆笑的说。 “我母亲也是,”她说,“您愿不愿意见见她?”

The doctor lives downstairs

  "Doctor," she said loudly, bouncing into the room, "I want you to say frankly what's wrong with me."

  He surveyed her from head to foot. "Madam," he said at length, "I've just three things to tell you. First, your weight wants reducing by nearly fifty pounds. Second, your beauty could be improved if you used about one tenth as much rouge and lipstick. And third, I'm an artist---the doctor lives downstairs."

   医生住在楼下

  “医生”她冲进屋后大声说道。

  “我想让你坦率地说我到底得了什么病。”

  他从头到脚打量打量她,然后大声说:“太太,我有三件事要对你说。第一,您的体重需要减少大约50磅;第二,如果您要用上十分之一的胭脂和口红,您的美貌将会改变。第三,我是一位画家——医生住在楼下。”

Q: What's the difference between a monkey and a flea?


A: A monkey can have fleas, but a flea can't have monkeys.


猴子会和跳蚤有什么不同呢?你可能会直接的想到它们俩是一大一小。但除此之外呢,那就是猴子身上可以长跳蚤,而跳蚤身上却不能有猴子。这个答案很有意思吧?


Q: How can you most irritate a farmer?


A: By treading on his corn?

Q: Which is the strongest creature in the world?


A: The snail. It carries its house on its back.


因为snail(蜗牛)的后背上总是背着一所房子,所以说蜗牛是世界上最强壮的生物是不足为奇的。你说呢?


Q: What do people do in a clock factory?


A: They make faces all day.


一看到make faces这个短语,你可千万别以为是在钟表厂工作的人整天都做鬼脸呀!因为除了这个意思以外,它还可以从字面上解释为制造钟面。


Q: How do you stop a sleepwalker from walking in his sleep?


A: Keep him awake.


怎样才能不让梦游者(sleepwalker)梦游(walk in his sleep)呢?最简单的方法就是不让他睡觉。虽然这不是治疗方法,但如果让梦游者醒着呢,他的确就不会去梦游了。

 Not long after an old Chinese woman came back to China from her visit to her daughter in the States, she went to a city bank to deposit the US dollars her daughter gave her. At the bank counter, the clerk checked each note carefully to see if the money was real. It made the old lady out of patience.


  At last she could not hold any more, uttering. "Trust me, Sir, and trust the money. They are real US dollars. They are directly from America."

The mean man's party.

  The notorious cheap skate finally decided to have a party. Explaining to a friend how to find his apartment, he said, "Come up to 5M and ring the doorbell with your elbow. When the door open, push with your foot."

  "Why use my elbow and foot?"

  "Well, gosh," was the reply, "You're not coming empty-hangded, are you?"

  “为什么要用我的肘和脚呢?”

  “你的双手得拿礼物啊。天哪,你总不会空着手来吧?”吝啬鬼回答。

Advice for "Kid"

  A bit of advice for those about to retire. If you are only 65, never move to a retirement community. Everybody else is n their 70s, 80s, or 90s. So when something has to be moved, lifted or loaded, they yell,"Get the kid."


忠告“年轻者”

  这里想对将要退休者提一点忠告。如果你只有65岁的话,

  千万别进退休社区。因为那里人人都七八十岁或者八九十岁了。每当要搬东西,抬东西或者装东西时,他们就叫喊,“让小的干吧。”

Which woman?

  One evening I drove my husband's car to the shopping mall.

  On my return, I noticed that how dusty the outside of his car was and cleaned it up a bit.When I finally entered the house, I called out."The woman who loves you the
most in the world just cleaned your headlights and windshield."

  My husband looked up and said, "Mom's here?"

哪一位女人?

  一天晚上我开着丈夫的车去购物,

  回来后发现车身沾满灰尘,于是擦洗了一阵。当我终于走进屋里时大声喊:“世界上最爱你的女人刚擦洗了你的车灯和挡风玻璃。”

  我丈夫抬头看了看,说:“妈妈来了?”
