爱思英语编者按:外国最新英语幽默笑话精粹108:苏格兰人和售票员,跟小编一起来开心一下吧! 


A Scotsman, carrying a huge suitcase, has been riding a London bus for five miles along its route, all the while attempting to avoid the ticket collector.

一个苏格兰人拎着一个很大的箱子,在开往伦敦的公交车上,这辆车已经行驶了五英里了。他时刻都想着避开售票员逃票。

Finally, the conductor manages to corner him and tells him to pay up: "You've been on for five miles一that’ll be 50 pennies, please, and 10 pennies for your suitcase.”

后来售票员还是发现了他,叫他补票。“你已经坐了五英里了,5O便士,你的箱子还要交10便士。”

The Scotsman responds: "I haven’t, I want to have a penny fare,just got on this very moment.” They begin to argue, and the ticket collector become more and more enraged and finally, as the bus is passing over London bridge, he  grabs  the  Scotsman’s suitcase, and hurls it out of the bus.

那个苏格兰人答道:“我没有,我刚刚才上来,我想只掏一便士的车钱。”于是他们开始吵了起来,售票员越听越生气。最后当车子行驶到伦敦大桥时他抓起苏格兰人的那个大箱子顺着车窗扔了出去。

It lands in the river and sinks without a trace. The Scotsman stands shocked  for a moment and says to the ticket collector, "Not only are you treat to overcharge me for the ticket一but now you're gone a drowned my boy Jenny.”

箱子掉进了河里沉了下去。那个苏格兰人在那里怔了片刻,然后对售票员说:“你不但想超收我的车钱,还淹死了我的儿子强尼。”
