三人同舟 Three Men in a Boat
Three Men in a Boat
Three men were sitting on a park bench. The one in the middle was reading a newspaper; theothers were pretending to fish. They baited imaginary hooks, cast lines and reeled in theircatch. A passing policeman stopped to watch the spectacle and asked the man in the middle ifhe knew the other two.
"Oh yes, " he said. "They are my friends."
"In that case, " warned the officer, "you'd better get them out of here!"
"Yes, sir, " the man replied, and he began rowing furiously.
After supper, the parents were busy playing mah-jong with the guests. At this point themother thought of something and said to her son who was watching TV, "Honey, go see if thekitchen light is on or not?"
After a while, her son returned and said, "Ma, the kitchen is so dark that I cannot see it at all."
