From: http://www.unsv.com/voanews/specialenglish/scripts/2009/10/11/0040/   

Now, the VOA Special English program, Words and Their Stories.

这里是美国之音特别英语词语掌故节目。

Many people believe that money makes the world go around. Others believe that money buys

happiness. I do not agree with either idea. But I do admit that money can make people do strange

things. Let me tell you about a person I once knew who liked to play card games for money. He liked to gamble. 

许多人相信钱能使地球运转,另外一些人认为钱能买到幸福。这两种看法我都不同意。但是,我承认钱能使人做奇怪的事情。

My friend Bob had a problem because he liked to gamble at all costs. He would play at any time

and at any price. To take part in a card game such as poker, my friend would have to ante up. He

would have to pay a small amount of money at the beginning of the game. 

我的朋友鲍勃有一个坏毛病,因为他喜欢赌博时,不惜任何代价。无论什么时候,多少价码,他都会玩。为了能够加入到一个纸牌中例如扑克,我的朋友会不得不先输掉点钱。他在开始时不得不付一些钱。

Bob always played with cold, hard cash --onlycoins and dollar bills. Sometimes my friend would

clean up. He would win a lot of money on one card game. He liked to tell me that one day he would break the bank. What a feeling it must be to win all of the money at a gambling table!

鲍勃总是用硬币,钞票玩。有时,我的朋友会赢钱。他会在一副牌中赢得很多的钱。他喜欢对我说有一天,他会将庄家的钱全部赢过来。这种感觉肯定是在赌桌上赢得所有的钱。

Other times my friend would simply break even. He neither won nor lost money. But sometimes

Bob would lose his shirt. He would lose all the money he had. He took a beating at the gambling

table. When this happened, my friend would have to go in the hole. He would go into debt and owe people money. 

另外有些时候,我的朋友只是不赢不输。他既不赢钱也不输钱。但有时鲍勃会输的倾家荡产。他会负债并且欠别人钱。

Recently, Bob turned to crime after losing all his money. In his job, he kept the books for a small

business. He supervised the records of money earned and spent by the company. Although my friend was usually honest, he decided to cook the books. He illegally changed the financial records of the company. This permitted him to make a fast buck. My friend made some quick, easy money

dishonestly. 

曾经,鲍勃在输掉他所有钱后走上了犯罪的路。在他工作中,他为一家小的公司记账。他监督公司赚到的钱和用掉的钱的记录。虽然我的朋友总是很正直,但他决定做假帐。他好、非法地改变了公司财务记录。这个让他投机赚了钱。我的朋友赚了一些快的、容易的钱。

I never thought Bob would have sticky fingers. He did not seem like a thief who would steal

money. But, some people will do anything for love of money. 

我从来没有想到鲍勃会有偷窃的习惯,他不像是会偷钱的小偷。但是,一些人为了钱会做任何事情。

Bob used the money he stole from his company to gamble again. This time, he cashed in. He made

a lot of money. Quickly he was back on his feet. He had returned to good financial health. His

company, however, ended up in the red. It lost more money than it earned. The company was no

longer profitable. 

鲍勃把从公司他偷来的钱又用来赌博。这次,他赢了。他得到了许多钱。很快,他东山再起了。他恢复了良好的经济状况。然而,他的公司却因负债而倒闭。这个公司负债了很多钱,公司再也不盈利了。

It did not take long before my friend's dishonesty was discovered. The company investigated and

charged him with stealing. Bob tried to pass the buck. He tried to blame someone else for the

deficit. His lie did not work, however. He ended up in jail. Today, I would bet my bottom dollar

that my friend will never gamble again. I would bet all I have that he learned his lesson about

gambling.

没过多久,我的朋友不正当的事情被发现了。这个公司因为偷窃调查并且控告了他。鲍勃试图去推卸责任。对于赤字,他试着去责备别人。他撒谎说没有工作。然而,他最终进了监狱。今天,我会跟你打赌,我的朋友再也不会赌博了。我会用我所有的东西打赌他从赌博中上了人生的一课。
