who was the first man? 谁是世界上第一个男人
a teacher said to her class:”who was the first man?”
“george washington,” a little boy shouted promptly.
“how do you make out that george washington was the first man?”asked the teacher,smiling indulgently.
“because,” said the little boy, “he was first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen.”
这个男孩子说:“因为,他是第一个挑起战争,第一个主张和平,并且是第一个深得民心的人。” but at this point a larger boy held up his hand. “well,” said the teacher to him, “who do you think was the first man?”
“i don’t know what his name was, ” said the larger boy, “but i know it wasn’t george washington, ma’am, because the history book says george washington married a widow, so, of course, there must have been a man ahead of him.”
