1.Thank you to all my fans.

感谢我所有的粉丝。

电扇还是粉丝 电扇还是粉丝

笑点解析:fan既有“粉丝”的意思,又有“电扇”的意思。

2.MEN to the left because WOMEN are always right.

男士请往左行,因为女士总是往右行。

男女有别 男女有别

笑点解析:right既有“右边”的意思,又有“正确”的意思。所以后半句话亦可理解为“……因为女士永远是正确的。”

3.Your brain has two parts:

你的大脑有两个部分:

left & right.

左脑和右脑

Your left brain has nothing right, your right brain has nothing left.

你的左脑里没有右脑的东西,你的右脑里没有左脑的东西。

笑点解析:right同上;left作形容词时意为左边的,作leave的过去分词使用时意为剩下的。所以后面两句还可以理解为“你的左脑里没有一点正确的东西,你的右脑里什么也不剩。”(我才不会直接说你笨呢)。

4. You thought this post would be funny?

你以为这个帖子会很搞笑?

I'm a frayed knot.

我是一只磨损的绳结。

笑点解析:I'm a frayed knot.(我是一只磨损的绳结。)和I'm afraid not.(我不这么认为)两句话听上去完全相同,所以这段话在字音上也可以理解为“你以为这个帖子会很搞笑?——我不这么认为。”

5.Once a German, a Frenchman and a Japanese went to work on a mine hill. Their boss said to the German: "You will be responsible for physical work". He told the Frenchman: "You will take the duty of planning for mining". Then he turned to the Japanese: "You will be responsible for supplies."

从前有一个德国人,一个法国人,一个日本人一起去一个矿山工作。他们的老板对德国人说,“你来负责体力活。”,又对法国人说,“你负责开采工作的筹备。”然后他转向日本人,“你负责供应。”

A few days later, the German and the Frenchman found that the Japanese disappeared. They decided to search for him when the Japanese jumped out all of a sudden and shouted: "Supplies"!

几天后德国人和法国人发现日本人不见了。他们决定把他找到,没想到日本人忽然跳出来,喊道“供应!”

笑点解析:日式英语中常把卷舌音/r/和边音/l/混淆。所以日本人误以为老板要他负责的是surprise(惊喜)而不是supplies(物资供应)。
