Lesson 8

Be Quiet!

闭上嘴

 

一、难得的工作
1、In the days of the Depression, it was very hard to get a job.
2、Joe was an out-of-commission gym athlete who had just luckily gotten a position in a zoo.
3、He was told that the zoo's most popular attraction had been a gorilla which had died suddenly.
4、The keeper feared that attendance at the zoo would fall, so Joe had to dress up as the gorilla until another one came.
5、The more people he could attract, the more money he could earn.


二、努力工作
6、So he did all he could to attract the people's attention and he drew big crowds on the first days.
7、However, the crowds gradually got tired of his swinging on trees and making faces.
8、He noticed that people were paying more attention to the newcomer, a lion, in the cage next to his.
9、Not wanting to lose the attention of his audience, he climbed to the top of his cage, crawled across a partition, and dangled himself on top of the lion's cage.
10、He taunted the furious lion, which attracted an increasingly bigger crowd.
11、At the end of the day, the zookeeper gave him a raise for being such a good attraction.


三、意外和意外的发现
12、Then one day, when he was dangling himself over the lion again, he slipped and fell into the lion's cage.
13,The lion quickly pounced on him and Joe found himself flat on his back under the angry lion.
14、He opened his mouth and had hardly had time to yell, "hel……"when his mouth was blocked by the lion's paw.
15、Despairing for his life, he heard the lion say in low voice,"Be quiet or both of us will lose our jobs!"
