One day a little girl came home from school, and said to her mother, "Mommy, today in school I was punished for something that I didn't do."
The mother exclaimed, "But that's terrible! I'm going to have a talk with your teacher about this! By the way, what was it that you didn't do?"
The little girl replied, "My homework."
Teacher: What is the plural of man,Tom?老师: 汤姆，“男人”这个词的复数形式是什么?Tom: Men.汤姆:男人们。Teacher: Good. And the plural of child?
老师: 答得好。那“孩子”的复数形式呢?Tom : Twins.
Little Pete came home from the playground with a bloody1 nose, black eye, and torn clothing.小彼得从操场回到家时，鼻子流血、黑眼圈及被撕破了衣服。It was obvious he'd been in a bad fight and lost. His father asked his son what happened. "Well, Dad," said Pete, "I challenged Larry to a duel2. And, you know, I gave him his choice of weapons."
显然他刚与人恶斗了一番，而且打输了。父亲问儿子发生了什么事。“噢，爸爸，彼得说，我向拉里挑起决斗，而且我让他挑选武器。”"Uh-huh," said the father, "that seems fair."
“嗯，”父亲说，“这看上去很公平!”"I know, but I never thought he'd choose his sister!"
