The revenge 欺骗的代价

Old Farmer Johnson was dying. The family was standing around his bed. With a low voice he said to his wife: "When I'm dead I want you to marry farmer Jones."

Wife: "No, I can't marry anyone after you."

Johnson: "But I want you to."

Wife: "But why?"

Johnson: "Jones once cheated me in a horse deal!"

老农约翰逊就要死了。他的家人都站在床边。他声音低沉地对妻子说:“我死后,我想你嫁给农夫琼斯。”

妻子说:“不,在你死后,我不能嫁给任何人。”

约翰逊:“但我希望你这么做。”

妻子:“为什么?”

约翰逊:“因为琼斯曾在一笔贩马的交易中欺骗了我。”
