• 开心一笑:时间对猪的意义

    [en]One day a visitor from the city came to a small [w]rural[/w] area to drive around the country roads, see how the farms looked, and perhaps to see how farmers earned their living. The city man saw a farmer in his yard, holding a pig up in his hands, and lifting it so that the pig could eat apples from an apple tree. The city man said to the farmer," I see that your pig likes apples, but isn't that quite a waste of time?" The farmer replied," What's time to a pig?"[/en] [cn]一天,有一个城市里的游客来到一个小乡村,在乡间路上开着车,想看看农庄是什么样子,也想看看农夫怎样种田过日子。这位城里人看见一位农夫在宅后的草地上,手中抱着一头猪,并把它举得高高的,好让它能够吃到树上的苹果。城里人对农夫说,“看你的猪挺喜欢吃苹果的,但是,这不是很浪费时间吗?”那位农夫回答说,“时间对猪有什么意义?”[/cn] 短语: earn one's living: 谋生。 I'll do anything within reason to earn my living. 为了谋生,只要是正当的事我什麽事都做。
