  推荐一篇很有意思的英语笑话

  The phone rang in the obituary department of the local newspaper. "How much does it cost to have an obituary printed"? asked the woman. "It's five dollars a word, ma'am," the clerk replied politely. "Fine," said the woman after a moment. "Got a pencil?" "Yes ma'am." "Got some paper?" "Yes ma'am." "Okay, write this down: 'Cohen dead'." "That's all?" asked the clerk disbelievingly. "That's it." "I'm sorry ma'am, I should have told you - there's a five word minimum." "Yes, you should've," snapped the woman. Now let me think a minute... okay, got a pencil?" "Yes ma'am." "Got some paper?" "Yes, ma'am." "Okay, here goes: 'Cohen dead. Cadillac for Sale.'"

  地方报社负责刊登死亡讣告的部门电话响了。“登一篇讣告多少钱?”一位女士问。“五美元一个字,太太。”书记员礼貌地回答。“好的,”女士沉默了一小会儿,“拿着笔呢吗?”“是的,夫人。”“纸呢?”“是的,夫人。”“好的,这样写:‘科恩去世了’”“就这些了?”书记员疑惑地问道。“对,就这些。”“很抱歉,夫人,我刚才没有告诉您,在我们这登讣告最少也得五个字。”“没错,你就应该告诉我,”女士有点生气了,“现在我得考虑一下,嗯…拿着笔呢吗?”“是的,夫人。”“纸呢?”“是的,夫人。”“好的,这样写:‘科恩去世了,出售一辆卡迪拉克轿车。’”
