ENG Joke- Pull Buddy

An out-of-towner drove his car into a ditch in a desolated area. Luckily, a local farmer came to help with his big strong horse, named Buddy. He hitched Buddy up to the car and yelled, "Pull, Nellie, pull!" Buddy didn't move.
  • out-of- towner n. 【口語】市外居民
  • ditch n. 壕溝
  • desolate adj. 荒蕪無人煙的
  • hitch v. 鉤住、套住
Then the farmer hollered, "Pull, Buster, pull!" Buddy didn't respond.
  • holler v. 大聲叫喊
Once more the farmer commanded, "Pull, Coco, pull!" Nothing.

Then the farmer nonchalantly said, "Pull, Buddy, pull!" And the horse easily dragged the car out of the ditch.
  • nonchalantly adv. 冷淡地、漫不關心地
The motorist was most appreciative and very curious. He asked the farmer why he called his horse by the wrong name three times.

The farmer said, "Oh, Buddy is blind and if he thought he was the only one pulling, he wouldn't even try."
