  记得大学毕业后刚工作不久,帮同一办公室的一位四川籍老工程师搬家,竟被同是四川籍的师母认做四川老乡,说我讲一口四川话(其实在此之前本人从未入过川).可能是这个缘故,我对四川话以及四川的风物掌故一向很有兴趣.下面的两个笑话就很令我忍俊不禁.感觉四川同胞就是"豪放",连幽默都是如此"大气".   ***麻雀和乌鸦一起摆龙门阵。  麻雀说:你是啥子鸟哦?  乌鸦说:我是凤凰噻!  麻雀:哪有你龟儿子恁各黑的凤凰哦?  乌鸦:你晓得个铲铲,老子是烧锅炉的凤凰噻。 ***奥运会开幕之前,两个四川人到北京旅游,在公车上看地图,甲:“我们先杀到天安门,然后再杀到中南海…” 乙:“要得,我们就按到你说的路线一路杀过切嘛。”不幸被同车群众举报,下车后即被扭送至公安机关,交代了N小时情况后才被放出。甲乙来到了天安门广场,看着人来人往,两人无语……….甲忍不住:“你浪个不开腔(枪)也?”乙:“你都不开腔(枪)我浪个敢开也?” 话音刚落,又被扭送至公安机关。一周后两人走出了看守所大门,你看看我,我看看你,甲说:“勒哈安逸了,包包都着整空老,哪点去搞点子弹嘛?”……门口的武警冲上来将两人按倒在地。 中共中央发出紧急通知:奥运会不允许四川人参加,太恐怖了。这是后话。

A doctor joke

  I read it and was fond of it right away while waiting for the doctor this morning. =======   A man goes to visit his doctor and hands him a note that reads "I cannot talk, please help me!" The doctor tells the … Continue reading

  连日on-call, 睡眠不足,又不能补觉,只能听歌纾困了(效颦于"望梅止渴").孤陋寡闻如我者,第一次听到叶欢的歌,竟然还很喜欢,自己也觉得奇怪.看来睡得实在太少了.      人生如夢 演唱:葉歡作詞:陳耀川 作曲:陳耀川 編曲:Ricky Ho 人生如夢 夢裡過眼繁華似錦繡朝看彩雲暮送晚霞過 又沈醉月色中 人生如夢 夢裡也曾帶著多少愁朝入塵世暮宿雪花中 看月夜正朦朧 多年以後 或許夢裡風水輪流走富貴榮華一身重 卻是孤獨依舊 多年以後 或許夢裡也有桃花落卻不慎將紅鸞動 讓春風來捉弄 人生的夢 總是一分歡喜一分愁尋覓夢裡幻影已無蹤 只留下霧迷濛幻影無蹤 只留下霧迷濛
