英语幽默 | 这个纪录永远不会被打破了

That record will stand forever
这个纪录永远不会被打破了

Back at my high school for the tenth reunion, I met my old coach. Walking through the gym, we came upon a plaque on which I was still listed as the record holder for the longest softball throw. Noticing my surprise, the coach said, "That record will stand forever." I was about to make some modest disclaimer that records exist to be broken, when he added, "We stopped holding that event years ago."
髙中毕业十年以后,我回母校团聚,碰到以前的教练。我们穿过体育馆的时候,看到一块牌匾,上面刻着我的名字,我仍然是垒球投掷最远纪录保持者。注意到我的诧异,老教练说:“这个纪录永远不会被打破了。”当我刚想谦虚几句说纪录的存在就是为了被打破时,他补充说:“我们几年前就取消这项比赛了。”
