Feifei
大家好,欢迎再次来到 BBC 英语教学的《地道英语》节目。我是冯菲菲,还有我的搭档…

Rob
I’m Rob!

Feifei
Yes, of course you are. And… what’s the capital of Greenland?

Rob
Strange question – why are you asking? 

Feifei
Well somebody has sold me a pair of ‘clever clogs’ and I’m trying them out… but they don’t seem to be working – I don’t feel any cleverer.

Rob
They’re nice shoes, Feifei, but I’m afraid wearing them won’t improve your intelligence – in fact buying them has made you look stupid not clever.

Feifei
Thanks! 我买了一双 “clever clogs 聪明的木底鞋”,但 Rob 说买了这双鞋让我显得很愚蠢。这到底什么意思?

Rob
Clogs are interesting, though. They’re made of wood, and were first made in Holland. They were used for farming, but are also used for dancing and…

Feifei
Yes, Rob, I know you’re trying to show how clever you are but it’s actually quite annoying.

Rob
I’m just demonstrating what a clever clogs is. It’s someone who’s annoying because they think they know more than everyone else.

Feifei
That sounds like you! 原来,在英语里,我们可以用 “clever clogs” 来形容一个自以为是的人,自以为聪明的人。Let’s hear some clever examples.

Examples
If you’re such a clever clogs, why don’t you work out our accounts?

My brother’s such a clever clogs; he always comes first in the pub quiz.

We got lost in the city because Neil, being such a clever clogs, insisted he knew the right way to go. He didn’t!

Feifei
这里是 BBC 英语教学的《地道英语》节目。我们正在给大家介绍 “clever clogs” 的意思和用法。“Clever clogs” 用来形容那些自认为比别人知道得多,或者总是认为自己是对的人。

Rob
Yes, and of course I’m right in saying you were stupid to buy a pair of clever clogs to make you more intelligent. You can’t buy intelligence!

Feifei
Hmm, actually they’re very comfortable and ideal for wearing around the office. But come on, Mr Clever Clogs, if you’re so smart, what is the capital of Greenland?

Rob
Err, it’s Anchorage, of course.

Feifei
Wrong! 格陵兰岛的首都是努克 Nuuk。Who’s clever now?

Rob
Smart Alec!

Feifei
Smart Feifei, actually. Bye.

Rob
Goodbye.
