欢迎围观以及。。。拍砖。。。。汉译英什么的果然是硬伤。。


在中国,即使孩子已成年,父母对他们的爱仍然能让孩子们透不过气。不过以局外人的观点来看,这看起来像个令人哭笑不得的黑色幽默。


Parent’s love inChinasometimes could be so suffocating to their child who may have entered their adulthood however. In the eyes of outsiders, this phenomenon is more like a sort of black humor, bittersweet and ironical.

当你在公共游乐场所看到打扮成米老鼠造型的卡通人物时,你猜什么人会穿这种卡通形象的服装呢?或许是小孩?不是,事实上是大人穿的,因为这种卡通形象通常较高,而且走起来也费力。但我怎么也不会想到穿这种卡通服装的是个上了年纪的老妇。

When you see someone in a Mickey Mouse suit to disguise as a cartoon character in amusement park, who do you think is in that suit? Children? No, actually they are adults. These characters are usually tall and difficult to move actually. But I can hardly imagine that the person in such suit is an old woman.

但是,75岁的退休老妇杨志巧,为了从路人那里赚些零用钱,在河南省洛阳市扮演米老鼠卡通人物。这些零用钱是为她儿子而攒的。这个河南本地人说:“我儿子已经40了,还是单身。我不希望自己成为他的负担,想要在经济上帮助他,这样他就可以讨到老婆。”

75-year-old retired old woman Yang Zhiqiao, working as a cartoon character disguiser inLuoyang,HenanProvince, intends to make some money from passers-by. She makes money for her son, she said, he is 40 now but remain single, she don’t want to be his burden, so she do this job so that she can help him to find a wife.


另据一条新闻报道,在北京郊区,许多父母早上5点就起床排队等公交。这般早起却不是为了自己,而是为了他们在北京市中心上班的子女。这些年轻人每天要花四五个小时坐车往返,他们的父母帮他们排队,这样他们就可以多睡半个小时。

According to another report, in the suburban area ofBeijing, many parents get up early at 5 o’clock to wait for a bus. But what they did is not for themselves, but for their children who working at the center of the city. These young guys have to spend four or five hours in commute. If their parents queue for them in waiting for the bus, they can have another half an hour to sleep.

以上举的两个中国父母疼爱子女的例子,算是比较独特,但却完美地反映了中国家庭父母和子女之间的关系。父母会为子女做出牺牲,就像传统情节剧演的那样,绝望的母亲为了孩子的温饱和学费而去出卖肉体。这个秘密无意中被她的孩子发现,孩子觉得他母亲很可耻而且责骂她。最后,当孩子发现母亲这样做完全是为了自己时,他的内心充满了感激。

These two instances show the love from the parents to their off springs, though individual, it perfectly indicated the relationship between family members especially the parents and their children. Parents always make sacrifice for their kids, as the old story told, a desperate mother working as a prostitute in order to support family and so she can afford her kid’s tuition. This secret incidentally discovered by her child and he felt so shameful about she did and scold her. Finally, the kids found what his mother did are all for his own sake, he feel so grateful and regretful with his mother.
