Paul
: You actually make moonshine?
Jeth: Does a bear crap in the woods? Of course. It's an old tradition.
Paul: Can we try some?
Jeth: How about this, I'll take you out snake hunting, then afterwards, we'll have some moonshine.
Paul: Deal. Is there any way we can help you catch the snakes?
Jeth: Yep, just be quiet and hold the snake bags.
Paul: What if we drop the bag?
Jeth: In that case, run like hell!

(续上期)

保罗:你们真的酿私酒?
杰斯:熊会在林子里拉屎吗?当然会。这是项老传统了。
保罗:我们可以喝喝看吗?
杰斯:这样如何,我带你们去猎蛇,然后,我们就来喝私酿酒。
保罗:一言为定。有什么办法可以帮你抓蛇?
杰斯:有,安静地拿着蛇袋即可。
保罗:要是袋子掉了呢?
杰斯:真这样的话,拔腿就跑。


重点解说:

★ crap (v.) (俗)拉屎。Does a bear crap in the woods? 熊在林子里拉屎吗?答案当然是肯定的,表示‘理所当然'
★ Deal. 一言为定。
★ In that case... 在那种情况下,…
★ like hell 没命地,极力
