Teacher: Boys, I have a riddle to ask you.

There’s something wearing beautiful feather, and it can wake you up every morning. What is it, Davis?
老师:孩子们,我有一个谜语要问大家。有一样东西,全身都是漂亮的羽毛,而且每天早晨能叫你们起床。是什么,戴维斯?

Davis: A feather duster. With which father wakes me up every morning.
戴维斯:鸡毛撢子,爸爸每天都用它叫我起床!

【David’s Note】
1. riddle: n. 谜语
2. feather duster: n. 鸡毛撢子
3. wake up: v.phr. 醒来

这则的笑点就是,老师问题的答案,本来应该是早晨的鸡鸣;但戴维斯却回答是爸爸叫他起床的鸡毛撢子。知道“鸡”的英文吗? Chicken是鸡的通称,cock是公鸡(male chicken),hen是母鸡(female chicken),fried chicken叫炸鸡,roast chicken就是烤鸡!@*
