1.A smart horse
There was a farmer who fell and broke his hip while he was plowing（耕地） , and his horse immediately galloped（疾驰，飞奔） five miles to the nearest town and returned, carrying a doctor on his back.
“That’s a pretty smart horse,” the farmer’s friend later observed.
“Well, he’s not really so smart,” the farmer said. “The doctor he brought back was a veterinarian!”
2.Is He Really ill
On a hot summer day an elderly gentleman faints in the street. A small crowd immediately gathers around him.
“Give the poor man a glass of brandy,” advises a woman. “Give him a heart massage, ” says someone else.
“No, just give him some brandy,” insists the woman. “Call an ambulance,” yells another person.
“A brandy!” The man suddenly sits up and exclaims. “Shut up, everybody, and do as the kind lady says!”
Brown: I‘m sorry to see you so unwell. Have you seen the doctor?
Jack: Yes. I‘m having three baths a day.
Brown: What for?
Jack: Don‘t know, doctor‘s orders. He gave me some medicine and told me to follow the directions on the bottle, which read:” One tablespoonful to be taken three times a day in water.”
4.Did your dad help you?
One day, Tim‘s mathematics teacher looked at his homework and saw that he had got all his sums right. The teacher was very pleased-and rather surprised. He called Tim to his desk and said to him, “You got all your homework right this time, Tim. What happened? Did your father help you?”
“No, sir. He was too busy last night, so I had to do it all myself,” said Tim.
