A: 什么警察!

B: 除去在电影里我也没见过这种情景。

A: 真不可思议。那个警察对司机大喊大叫,还污言秽语,可那位司机都忍了。

2. take the cake (biscuit) 最坏不过;再妙不过

注解:此语来自于黑人围饼跳舞,优胜者得到一个大饼的奖励。这条习语通常用于表示惊奇、不相信等。它含有讽刺意味,讽喻愚蠢、荒谬或强暴的行为。

A: We have to work on Saturday, too.

A: Yeah, but we have no choice.

A: 大家星期六也得加班。

B:那确实是糟糕透顶。

A: 就是,可大家也无法。

3. take pot luck 吃家常便饭

注解:按字面意思讲,这条习语是指从炉火上的锅取东西吃。此语的出处可能是一同进餐的人各自从公用汤锅中为自己舀些食物吃。在美国,此语可用于表示客人带来的饭菜。

A: What will you do tonight?

B: Tom told me this morning to come at 7 p.m. and take pot luck.

A: Really? I just wanted to invite you to the cinema.

B: Thank you, same to you!

A:你今晚干吗?

B:汤姆今早邀我晚上7点去他家吃顿便饭。
