当某人在胡闹或装小丑的时候你就可以用 clowning around 来形容。


Clowns from Central America, South America and the Caribbean have been getting together every year for the last four to exchange ideas and attend workshops. This year's congress is being held in Guatemala City. Clowns have been a feature of societies around the world for centuries. The oldest recorded clowns were from Egypt 5,000 years ago.

He was a terrible student - always clowning around in classes.


To fool someone 是另一个短语,意思是骗人,让人相信一件不真实的事。

Example: I used to fool the bar staff and get served beer when I was only 16.
