     Problem Solver

While reading the newspaper one morning, a man came across job advertised for a "Problem Solver" with a big salary of $200,000. He applied for the job, had an interview and was given the job.

 “Do you have any questions?"asked his new employer. 

"Just one,”replied the man. "How can you give me such a high salary?"

 "That” said the employer, "is your first problem.”


专门排忧解难的人

一天早上,有个人在看报纸时,偶然发现了一条招聘广告,上面写着有人愿意以20万美元的高薪招聘一位“专门排忧解难的人”。

于是,他便前去应征。在经过一番面试后,他被录用了。

“还有什么问题吗?”他的新老板问道。

“只有一个。”这个人回答说,“我想知道你如何才能给我这样一大笔钱?”

“这个嘛”这位雇主说,“这正是你要帮我解决的第一个难题。”

Who Was On the Earth First

 A bricklayer, a carpenter and an electrician argued about who was on the earth first.

 "We built the Pyramids of Giza, ”said the bricklayer, "so we must have been first."

 "No," said the carpenter, shaking his head. "We built Noah's Ark long before that.”

 The electrician chuckled to himself.

 “What's so funny?" asked the carpenter.

 “On the first day of creation, God said, ‘Let there be light',"explained the electrician. "And we'd already laid the cables."


谁先来到世界上

一个砌砖工,一个木匠和一个电工争论着谁先来列这个世界上。

“我们建造了吉萨金字塔,”砌砖工说,“所以一定是我们最先来的。”

“不,”木匠着头说,“我们早在那之前就建造了诺亚方舟。”

电工听到这里笑了起来。

“有什么可笑的?”木匠问。

“在创造世界的第一天,上帝说:‘让世界亮起来吧’,”电工解释道。“那时,我们就已经储好了电缆。”
