Download


Visitors to Disneyland in southern California see lots of life-sized cartoon characters, such as Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Pluto the Dog. Most parents take their small kids right up to these characters. If the child doesn't start bawling because he or she is afraid of the cartoon character, the parents will take snapshots or videos of their kid with Snow White, Grumpy, Goofy, or others. Often the camera will be rolling even when the child looks afraid or is crying.

Last week, Eva Gunderson took her 7-year-old son Billy Bob to Disneyland. Pluto was the first character they met once they got inside. Eva asked Billy Bob if he wanted a picture with Pluto. Billy Bob said no. He said Pluto's tail was too skinny and his nose was too big. Eva told him to go ahead, please, just so she could show daddy. Billy Bob reluctantly agreed.

He went over to Pluto and sat on his lap. Eva said, "Say cheese!" and both Billy Bob and Pluto said the magic word. Then, as Billy Bob got off Pluto's lap, he grabbed Pluto's round black plastic nose and ripped it off Pluto's costume. Pluto yelled "Ouch!" (even though it didn't hurt). Billy Bob started running, and Pluto started chasing him. Just as Pluto got close enough to grab him, Billy Bob kicked Pluto between his legs. Pluto fell to the ground, groaning. This time he really was in pain.

Eva got it all on video cam. "That was great, honey!" she told her son as they walked off to find more characters. "Wait till daddy sees this. He'll be so proud of you!"

Pluto rượt đuổi trẻ con

Du khách tới Disneyland ở miền nam California thấy rất nhiều nhân vật hoạt hình to như người thật, như là chuột Mickey, Vịt Donald, và chú chó Pluto. Hầu hết cha me đưa con của mình lên kế bên những nhân vật này. Nếu đứa trẻ nào mà không nói oang oang bởi vì chúng sợ nhân vật hoạt hình, cha mẹ chúng sẽ chụp ảnh nhanh hay qua video con của họ với nàng Bạch Tuyết, Grumpy, Groofy, hoặc những nhân vật khác. Thường thì máy quay vẫn chạy kể cả khi đứa trẻ thấy sợ hay đang khóc.

Tuần trước, Eva Gunderson dẫn đứa con 7 tuổi của mình là Billy Bob tới Disneyland. Pluto là nhân vật đầu tiên họ gặp ngay khi họ vừa vào bên trong. Eva hỏi Billy rằng anh ta có muốn một bức hình với Pluto không. Billy Bob nói không. Chú bé nói cái đuôi của Pluto ốm quá và cái mũi thi lại quá tọ Eva nói cậu đi tới đi, chỉ là để cho ba của cậu coi thôi. Billy miễn cưỡng gật đầu.

Cậu bé đi tới Pluto và ngồi vào lòng. Eva nói, "Nói chào mừng!" và cả Billy Bob lẫn Pluto nói từ kì diệu đó. Rồi khi Billy Bob rời khỏi lòng của Pluto, cậu bé túm lấy cái mũi nhựa đen tròn của Pluto và giật nó ra khỏi trang phục của Pluto. Pluto hét lên "Ouch!" (việc này chẳng có đau đớn gì). Billy Bob bắt đầu chạy, và Pluto bắt đầu rượt đuổi cậu. Khi Pluto chạy tới gần để bắt cậu, Billy Bob đá vào giữa hai chân của Pluto. Pluto té xuống đất, lầm bầm. Lần này thì anh ta đau thật sự.

Eva đã có tất cả trong máy quay. "Thật tuyệt, con trai!" cô ta bảo với con khi họ đi vào tiếp để tìm thêm vài nhân vật khác. "Đợi cho ba của con coi đi, ông ấy sẽ rất tự hào về con."

Du khách đến Disneyland ở phía nam California thấy những nhân vật hoạt hình có kích thước giống người thật, như chuột Mickey, Vịt Donald, chú chó Pluto. Hầu hết các bậc phụ huynh đều dắt những đứa con nhỏ của mình đến ngay chỗ những nhân vật đó. Nếu lũ trẻ không bắt đầu khóc nức nở bởi cô hay cậu sợ hãi những nhân vật hoạt hình, các bậc phụ huynh sẽ chụp hình nhanh hoặc quay phim các con với nàng Bạch Tuyết, chú lùn Grumpy, Goofy hay những nhân vật khác nữa. Thường thường máy quay phim sẽ cứ quay ngay cả khi lũ trẻ trông có vẻ sợ hãi hay đang khóc nhè.

Tuần trước, Eva Gunderson dẫn Billy Bob, cậu con trai 7 tuổi của mình đến Disneyland. Pluto là nhân vật đầu tiên họ gặp ngay khi họ bước vào trong. Eva hỏi Billy Bob có muốn chụp hình với Pluto hay không. Billy Bob nói không muốn. Cậu bảo cái đuôi của Pluto sao mà gầy giơ xương và cái mũi sao mà to thế. Eva bảo con đi tới trước, giúp mẹ nhé, chỉ để cô có thể khoe với bố nó. Billy miễn cưỡng đồng ý.

Cậu đi tới chỗ Pluto và ngồi vào lòng chú. Eva nói, "Cười lên nào!" và cả hai người, Billy Bob và Pluto đều thốt lên những từ kỳ diệu đó. Sau đó, Billy Bob nhảy ra khỏi lòng của Pluto, cậu giật cái mũi tròn màu đen bằng nhựa của Pluto và xé toạc nó ra khỏi trang phục của Pluto. Pluto kêu lên"Ối!"(Cho dù nó không đau tý nào cả). Billy Bob bỏ chạy, và Pluto bắt đầu rượt theo. Ngay khi Pluto vừa tới gần để chụp lấy cậu, Billy Bob đá vào giữa hai chân của Pluto. Pluto lăn xuống đất, rên rỉ vì đau. Lần này thì chú ta thật sự rên rỉ vì đau rồi.

Eva đã quay tất cả cảnh đó trong máy quay phim. "Thật là tuyệt vời, con yêu của mẹ!" cô bảo với con trai khi họ rời đi để tìm thêm những nhân vật khác nữa. "Hãy đợi đến lúc bố con thấy được điều này. Bố sẽ rất tự hào về con."

Xin góp thêm hình ảnh minh hoạ:

@ chị HoangThiQuynhNhu thân mến:

Bài ESL 88 chị dịch rất hay, chỉ xin góp ý một điều có liên quan đến vấn đề ngữ âm.

Tại sao phải nói “cheese” ? “say cheese” nghĩa là gì?
Say cheese nghĩa là mĩm cười lên/ cười lên nào

Người thợ chụp ảnh ( người Anh/Mỹ) yêu cầu người ta nói “ cheese” khi chụp hình là muốn người được chụp hình “mĩm cười”. Bởi vì khi phát âm /i:/ ( i dài) cần phải căng hai môi ra sau, phô hai hàm răng như thể mĩm cười. Phát âm từ "cheese" thì trông giống như cười mà người được chụp hình cũng thấy vui.

Image

Meaning
A photographer's instruction just before taking a picture, in order to make people smile.
Origin
'Say cheese!' must have been said to people posing for photographs as often as 'watch the birdie!'. Articulating a long 'e' sound requires us to draw back our lips and bare our teeth in a grimace, which is the obvious reason for photographers using it.
http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/say-cheese.html


Nhân tiện, xin mời anh chị xem một đoạn video có liên quan về phân biệt khi phát âm /I/ (i ngắn/short i) và /i:/(i dài/long i).




Chúc chị và các anh chị mạnh tiến và vui khoẻ.

Hi, anh phamdinhphung!

Mình cũng ít xem phim hoạt hình nên không biết Grumpy và Goofy là con gì và ở trong phim nào, nên khi dịch đành để nguyên tên. Do hình của Goofy vẫn chưa hiện lên nên tới giờ vẫn chưa biết Goofy là con gì nữa.^_^

Thanks anh rất nhiều.

@ chị HoangThiQuynhNhu thân mến:

Không biết tại sao mà sửa tới sửa lui mà không thấy hình Goofy hiện. Nay xin gởi lại chị và các anh chị xem cho vui.

Chúc chị và các anh chị một ngày mới vui vẻ, đầy sức khoẻ.
