18 A Joke— “I stand corrected”

I have this friend who always seemed to lean slightly to the left all the time. It used to bother me, so I suggested he see a doctor, and have his legs checked out. For years, he refused and told me I was crazy, but last week, he finally went. Sure enough, the doctor discovered his left leg was a quarter inch shorter than his right. A quick bit of surgery later, he was cured, and both legs are exactly the same length now, and he no longer leans. “So,”I said, "You didn't believe me when I told you a doctor could fix your leg. He just looked at me and said, "I stand corrected.

笑话——“我诚恳认错”

我有一个朋友,他似乎总是微微向左倾斜。这个问题曾经非常困扰我,所以我建议他去看医生,检查一下他的腿。几年来,他总是不听我的建议,还说我不正常,但是上星期,他终于去看了医生。果真,医生发现他的左腿比右腿短四分之一英寸。一个很快的小手术后,他康复了,现在他的两条腿完全一样长了,他也不再倾斜了。“你看,”我说,“那时我告诉你医生可以治好你的腿时你还不相信我呢。”他看着我说:“我认错了。”
