体育美语031讲 功夫 - Kung Fu

  • 美国之音

Y: Patrick, What are you doing?

P I'm playing Kung fu video games.

Y Kung fu电动游戏多没劲,Let me teach you some real Kung fu moves.

P: You know Yang Chen, I think Kung fu may be the only sport where you have the upper hand on me.

Y: 在功夫大师面前,你是不是害怕了?

P: I'm not scared. I have lots of experience playing Kung fu video games by myself at home.

Y: Only losers play Kung fu video games by themselves at home.

P: You really don't pull your punches, do you, Yang Chen?

Y: What do you mean 'pull my punches'?

P: When you pull your punches, that means you hit someone only lightly so you really don't actually hurt them.

Y: You mean手下留情。Don't worry.

P: That's what I was afraid of. You know, you can use "pull your punches" when you're talking about criticizing people too. For example, I didn't pull any punches when I criticized my boss's new plan to reduce everyone's salary.

Y: Oh 你敢批评老板? 而且还didn't pull any punches 。勇气可嘉。But I'm worried about you. Do you still have a job?

P: Nope. He got mad and fired me. That's why I'm trying to become a professional Kung fu master for my new career.

Y: Well, 学点儿功夫也好。 教训一下你的老板。Maybe he'll hire you back.

P: That's the plan.

Y: That's a good plan.

P: Now let me show you some of the Kung fu moves I've learned from watching Bruce Lee movies.

Y: That's the worst Kung fu I've ever seen.

P: I can see you're not pulling your punches when you make fun of me!

Y: Don't feel bad. At least you can scream even better than Bruce Lee.
