漫談英語:Tread his corn

2016-10-21

To tread means to step on something. Corn has two meanings - it is a vegetable, but it is also a piece of hard skin on your foot that is painful. If you stepped on either type, a farmer would be upset!

如何傷害一個農夫?既可以踏(tread)他種的粟米(corn),也可以踩他的足蹠疣(corn的另一種解法,也就是俗語說的「雞眼」)。■漫畫&說明︰英國文化協會
