  B-1 background~barely

  A barber who was also a music lover organized a band to play background music at a small bar. But soon, neighbors accused them of playing some banned music. The sheriff issued a ban. It said that they were not allowed to play music anymore; otherwise they'd be kept behind bars. So they packed their baggage and moved to another city. However, as they had no jobs and were bankrupt, they could barely exist, and had great trouble just to keep a balance in their account. They could only afford bare necessities. To make things worse, one of them had bacon with bacteria in it and his life was in the balance. All these troubles would not make them stop playing music or take a backward move, though. They threw off their shirts and bared their chests, as it got hotter. The patients were very excited about it too, and a man with an arm banded with plaster even danced to their music, but when he moved backwards, he threw himself off balance. The band then became a big success and was even invited to perform in a concert to raise funds for bankrupts and homeless people.

  有一个爱好音乐的理发师组织了一个乐队在一间小酒吧演奏背景音乐。可是很快就有邻居控告他们演奏被查禁的曲子。为此司法官下了一道禁令,禁令上写着他们不能再演奏音乐,否则将被关进监狱。于是他们收拾行李搬到了另外一城市。然而,由于没有工作而且已经破产他们几乎不能维持生活,要费很大的劲才能保持收支平衡。他们只买得起勉强的生活必需品。更糟的是,他们中的一位因为了带细菌的咸肉而生命垂危。所有这些困难并没有使他们放弃音乐或向后撤退。为了让生病的朋友高兴,他们带了一只气球去医院,气球上还挂着旗帜。他们甚至在阳台上开起了音乐会。他们砰砰地敲打乐器,发出的巨响震耳欲聋。随着音乐会进入高潮,他们脱掉上衣露出胸膛,病人们也很兴奋,一个胳膊上用绷带绑扎着石膏的人还随着他们的音乐跳起了舞,可是在向后退时他整个人失去了平衡。乐队获得了很大的,他们甚至被邀请参加一个为破产者和无家可归的人举行的募捐音乐会。

  B-2 bark~behavior

  A man tried to sell his neighbor a new dog for five dollars. "This is a talking dog." He said. "Stop behaving stupidly," the neighbor replied, "how can a beast like that talk? Or you mean bark?" Suddenly, the dog looked up and said with tears in his eyes, "Please buy me, Sir. This man is mean. He keeps me in a barn and I have to sleep in a barrel. He feeds me only beans and never walks me to the bay, and the only toy I have is a waste battery. Basically speaking, he treats me like a beggar. On the basis of his behavior, I'm sure he'll abuse me with his baseball bat one day. And mind you, I hate his ugly beard. I used to be the richest trick dog in the country, and have the best bearing, too. I can jump over the highest barrier and barrel ovey any high beam. I attended the Animals Olympic on behalf of the country. I had so many fans who loved me so much that my body guards had trouble keeping them at bay." The dog beamed with pride.

  "Hey," said the neighbor, "he can talk! How come you want to sell him for just five dollars?" "I'm selling him on my own behalf. I'm getting tired of his lies, which have a bearing on my kids, too, and wish he would only talk with a bark." the seller said.

  一个人想把刚刚养了不久的狗以5美元卖给他的邻居。"这是条会说话的狗。"他说。"别表现得傻呼呼的。"他的邻居回答道,"动物怎么会说话?你是说会叫吧?"突然,狗抬起头含着眼泪说:"请买下我吧,先生,这个人卑鄙自私,他把我关在谷仓里,我只得睡在一只桶里,他只给我豆子吃,从来不带我去海湾散步,我惟一的玩具就是一节废电池。从根本上说,他待我就像待乞丐一样。根据他的表现,我敢肯定早晚他会用棒球棒打我。告诉你,我还讨厌他那难看的胡须。我原是全国最富有的表演狗,风度也是最棒的,我能跳过最高的障碍,快速在高高的横梁上移动,我还代表国家参加了动物奥运会。我的狗迷不计其数,他们非常喜欢我,我的保镖要费好大
