The script of this programme 本节目台词

Finn: Ahh, this is the life. Sun shining, beautiful day here in the park, 不是吗,Feifei?

Feifei: 恩,太阳晒着真舒服。Just one thing, Finn. I'm a bit thirsty.

Finn: Yes, I could do with a drink.

Feifei: An orange juice would be magnificent.

Finn: No, no, no. On a day like today the ideal thing would be... an ice-cold beer, or maybe six...

Looks in bag

Finn: Wait - here we are. A six-pack! Look.

Feifei: Finn, I don't really want to see your six-pack.

Finn: What?

Feifei: Actually, you don't have a six-pack. You have - a beer belly!

Finn: Oh, I get it! Very good Feifei. In English the phrase six-pack originally refers to a way of selling cans of beer - buying six cans joined together with plastic holders.

Feifei: 是的,在英语里 a six-pack 原本指的是六听包装的饮料,但现在这个表达变成了一个俚语,意思是六块腹肌 – 就是我们在那些身材极好的人身上看到的六块腹部肌肉。Unfortunately, not on you Finn.

Finn: What are you saying, Feifei?

An overweight person

Feifei: Anyone can see you don't have a six-pack. You have a one-pack - one huge beer belly!

Finn: Well, I think that phrase is easy enough to understand.

Feifei: Too many six-packs of beer, I'm afraid!

Examples

  • I've been going to the gym for a month now. I need to get my six-pack ready before I go to the beach this summer!
  • I used to have a six-pack when I was a teenager, but it seems to have got lost under all this fat.

Feifei: So Finn, how about you leave that six-pack of beer, and swap it for... a healthy fruit smoothie!

Finn: Nice idea, wow I can see a fruit smoothie seller over there! I'll go and buy two. See you in a bit.

Feifei: Thanks Finn. Finn 去买水果奶昔了,借这个空我想再提醒一下收听我们节目的朋友们,如果你想学习更多像 six-pack 或 beer belly 这样的短语别忘了登陆 BBC Learning English 的网站!And do some exercise! Bye.

Finn: (Opens and drinks from can) Don't tell Feifei!
