Big Misunderstanding

提要
誤會的產生,有時是因為人與人之間的溝通上出了問題,有時是太不湊巧;更多的時候,肇因於個人的知識不足、見聞淺薄。所以平時應該與人充分溝通、充實自己,避免成為「井底之蛙」。
Who is Paul Mcartney?
He is one of the greatest living musicians and a legend to many -and we're not talking about Kanye West.
Yet Paul McCartney’s recent collaboration with the rapper for the newly released single Only One at first appears to have left some hip hop fans scratching their heads.
“Who is Paul Mcartney?” someone wrote on Twitter about the Beatles rocker while another posted: “This Paul McCartney guy gonna be huge.”
Mother Was Fooled
Once upon a time, there lived a girl called Maya. One day when she came home from school she went straight to her mother and said “Mummy, today my teacher punished me for something I didn’t do. The mother was very angry and went straight to her teacher and scolded her, but she didn’t ask Maya what she didn’t do.
When she came home she said “I scolded your teacher nicely for just scolding you.” Then she asked “by the way Maya what is that you didn’t do?” her mother asked, “My homework,” said Maya.
The Dirty Pig
On a fine day, a dirty pig was soaking himself in a pond. A thirsty lion came by water, but unable to bear the heavy stench went away. The foolish pig thought that the lion cowed down seeing him and excitedly challenged him to a duel. “Maybe tomorrow,” replied the lion and turned away from the smelly pig.
The excited pig went home and told his parents how he had challenged a coward lion. “What have you done, you foolish pig? It’s not you but your stench that made him run away.” explained his father. The dirty pig’s excitement crashed instantly. His father suggested that he should leisurely roll in the dirty waters so that he might stink even more and then meet the lion.
The pig listened to his father. As soon as the lion approached him, the foul smell spread around and he ran away unable to bear it. Since then, someone said, pigs always keep themselves dirty so that no animal might come near them.
解 說
保羅麥卡尼是誰?
英國搖滾樂團「披頭四」(Beatles)的靈魂人物保羅麥卡尼,應該可說是無人不知、誰人不曉吧。披頭四曾經叱吒全球,讓萬千歌迷們瘋狂 ,甚至還造成著名的「狂愛披頭四」(Beatlemania)現象:歌迷們因為目睹偶像,尖叫失聲、激動落淚,甚至昏倒送醫。
然而,保羅麥卡尼與美國饒舌歌手肯伊威斯特合作發行單曲〈唯一〉(Only One)時,就是有知識非常不豐富的網友,居然會「好奇」這跟肯伊合作的「傢伙」是誰……。他還說,肯伊「很會挖掘好天賦,這個叫做保羅麥卡尼的人『一定會紅』」。
媽媽被耍了
有一天,一個名叫瑪雅的女孩放學回家時,奔向母親就說:「媽媽,今天我的老師懲罰了我,為了我『沒做』的事。」母親非常生氣,直接去老師理論。但她沒問瑪雅,她「沒做」的事究竟什麼。
當瑪雅的母親回到家時,她說:「我好好地罵了妳的老師,因為她罵了妳。」然後,她問:「順便問一下,瑪雅,妳『沒做』的是什麼事?」她的母親問:「我的家庭作業。」瑪雅說。
髒兮兮的豬
一個美好的晴天,一隻髒兮兮的豬正在池塘中「泡澡」。口渴的獅子走到水邊,因為無法忍受那惡臭、調頭就走。 愚蠢的豬以為獅子看到他嚇壞了,興奮地挑戰他「決鬥」。「也許明天吧。」獅子回答說,轉身遠離臭氣沖天的豬。
豬喜孜孜地回家告訴父母他是如何挑戰「懦夫獅子」的種種。「你搞什麼,你這蠢豬?不是因為你,而是你身上的惡臭,讓獅子受不了逃跑。」豬爸爸解釋說,髒豬的興奮瞬間崩解,豬爸爸建議,豬應該悠閒地在髒水裡泡個夠,以便再遇到獅子時能夠臭得「更上一層樓」。
豬聽從了爸爸的建議,當獅子靠近牠時,便因為無法忍受惡臭逃跑。據說從那時起,豬總是保持自己骯髒,以免其他動物靠近。
