The sack mishap 拿錯袋子啦!


Paco was walking down the street one day carrying a sack of chili peppers when Mark and Kathleen passed by him in a truck. Paco needed to deliver the peppers to a restaurant in town, and Mark and Kathleen offered to give him a ride.

"Where are you heading to?" Paco said after he had jumped into the back of the truck.

"We're going to the movie studio downtown," Kathleen said. "Mark has been hired to blow dried coconut over the actors and actresses for a winter scene. That's what all those bags of dried coconut are for."

The three reached town and Paco got out. He thanked Mark and Kathleen for the ride and went to make his delivery.

Mark and Kathleen continued on to the movie set. They arrived just as filming was about to begin.

"Everybody, in your positions," the director said. "Mark, start blowing."

Kathleen opened up a bag and Mark sucked up the contents with his trunk, then he blew it out over the actors and actresses. Kathleen kept handing Mark more and more bags.

Meanwhile, Paco arrived at the restaurant and gave his sack of chili peppers to the chef, who opened it up and said, "Dried coconut! I didn't order dried coconut …"

某天,派克扛了一袋紅辣椒走在街上,準備把這袋辣椒送到城裡一家餐館時,坐在卡車上的馬克和凱薩琳剛好經過,於是他們就讓派克搭便車。

「你們要去哪裡呢?」派克跳上卡車後座後問。

「我們要去市中心的電影製片場,」凱薩琳說:「馬克得到一份工作,他負責吹椰乾屑到男女演員身上,製造冬天場景的效果,後面那幾袋椰乾屑就是等會兒要用的。」

他們三個來到市區,派克謝過馬克和凱薩琳讓他搭便車後,就下車送貨去了。

馬克和凱薩琳則繼續前往拍片現場,他們在開拍前不久抵達。

「所有人,各就各位,」導演大喊:「馬克,開始吹。」

凱薩琳打開一袋椰乾屑,馬克用他的象鼻大力吸入裡面的東西,然後再用力吹到男女演員身上。凱薩琳則不斷將更多袋椰乾屑遞給馬克。

此時,派克來到了餐廳,將那袋紅辣椒交給廚師,廚師打開一看說:「椰乾屑!我沒有訂椰乾屑啊…」
