时间:2022-3-31 作者:哒哒在线少儿英语

A preacher was asked to give a talk at a local women’s health symposium. His wife asked about his TOPic, but he was too embarrassed to admit that he had been asked to speak about sex. Thinking quickly, he replied, "I’m talking about sailing.""Oh, that’s nice," said his wife.
The next day, at the grocery store, a young woman who had attended the lecture recognized the minister’s wife. "That was certainly an excellent talk your husband gave yesterday, " she said. "He really has a unique perspective on the subject." Somewhat chagrined, the minister’ s wife replied, "Gee, funny you should think so. I mean, he’s only done it twice. The first time he threw up, and the second time, his hat blew off."Notes:

78.传教士的讲题
一位传教士应邀在当地的妇女健康专题研讨会上作报告。他的老婆问及他的讲题,他如果供认他应邀讲性常识的话,他会无地自容的。他飞快地思索,回答说:“我要讲关于航海的常识。”
“噢,那好极了,”他老婆说。
第二天,在杂货店,一位听过讲坛的年青妇女认出了牧师的老婆。“你老公昨天讲得确实好极了,”她说,“在那个问题上他确有独到的见解。”牧师老婆显出有的懊恼地回答说:“唧,你如此觉得真是好笑。我是说他仅仅做过两次。首次他呕吐了,第二次他的帽子被吹掉了。”
