you hear the one about men

Did you hear the one about men being funnier than women? It's no joke but only by a giggle.

People have been trying to break down a joke(1) for centuries, hoping to find the right equation for the sure-fire laugh(2).

Is it a matter of the right elements thrown together in perfect propotions?

The mixture of context, suprise , humour and hiliarious conclusion all stirred in(3) and used at just the right moment.

Suprisingly enough, the equation hasn't been perfected.

That said , researchers at a university in San Diego do think that they have determined the funnier sex, based on stringent scientific methods.

After a serious, methodical, and rational trial, men came out ahead.

    1.) Did you hear the one about men being funnier than women? It's no joke but only by a giggle.

    您是否曾經聽過這麼一說,男人要比女人來得風趣許多? 這可不是說笑,但也夠讓人莞爾。

    It's no joke 表此事千真萬確

    only by a giggle = only winning by a giggle (注意這個 by,意指男人即使勝出也只是哂笑 giggle ,而非捧腹絕倒 laugh to death)

    2.) People have been trying to break down a joke for centuries, hoping to find the right equation for the sure-fire laugh.

    世紀以來,人們試著破解 "笑話",希望能找出彈無虛發(屢試不爽)的笑料公式。

    break down the figures,break down the formula 這裡的break down 指拆解組成部份

    ( break down 可以有許多解釋,不要死背,唯有廣泛閱讀才能依前後文解讀)

    3.) Is it a matter of the right elements thrown together in perfect proportions?

    The mixture of context, surprise , humor and hilarious conclusion all stirred in and used at just the right moment.

    笑話是將情節橋段,摻雜意想之外、詼諧和令人捧腹的笑點 (梗) ,適時適宜、恰到好處地攪和 (stirred in)在一塊

    4.) Surprisingly enough, the equation hasn't been perfected.

    That said , researchers at a university in San Diego do think that they have determined the funnier sex, based on stringent scientific methods.

    After a serious, methodical, and rational trial, men came out ahead.

    the funnier sex 這個sex指男女性別

    only by a giggle

    是指男人即使較女人風趣,也只是些微差距,非壓倒性勝出
