世界上最偉大的擊劍手

  在一場世界最佳擊劍手錶演中,排名第三的擊劍手上場了。一隻蒼蠅放了出來,劍劃了一個弧,他將蒼蠅劈成了兩半。觀眾歡呼起來。緊接著排名第二的人將一隻蒼蠅切成了四半。現場一陣沉默,人們期盼著世界上最偉大的擊劍手出場。

  他的劍鋒以一個巨大的弧線劃了下來──然而那只昆蟲還在繼續飛行!觀眾被驚呆了。最偉大的擊劍手完全錯過了他的目標,然而他還在微笑著。

  「你為什麼這麼高興?」有人嚷道,「你沒擊中!」

  「啊,」劍手答道,「你剛才沒有很仔細地看。蒼蠅還活著,是的──但他永遠也做不成爸爸了。」

The World's Greatest Swordsman

At an exhibition of the world's best swordsman, the third-place fencer took the stage. A fly was released, and with an arc of his sword he cut the fly in half. The crowd cheered. Then the second-place man sliced a fly into quarters. A hush fell in anticipation of the world's greatest swordsman.

His blade came down in a mighty arc - but the insect continued on its way! The crowd was aghast. The greatest swordsman had missed his target completely, yet he continued to smile.

"Why are you so happy?" someone yelled. "You missed!"

"Ah," replied the swordsman, "you weren't watching very carefully. They fly lives, yes - but he will never be a father."
