The Ice Cream Cone Explosion

One day, John walked to his uncle's ice cream shop. When he reached the sidewalk, he caught the scent of ice cream cones and anticipated eating some ice cream.

一天,约翰前去叔叔的冰激凌店。刚到店,他就闻到了冰激凌蛋筒的香味,满心期待来上一块。

Sam opened the door. Uncle John had a new, steel machine. "What is that?"

山姆开门进来。约翰叔叔这有一台崭新的钢铁机器。“这是什么?”

It's a cone maker. I built it from a kit. You take flour from the barrel and put it in this pan, Uncle John said. "Then add water and sugar here and stir it so the sugar dissolves. Next, you fasten down the beam." Uncle John wanted to look casual, but he was excited. He made a few swift motions and turned it on. There was a puff of smoke, and then cones came out the other end.

这是蛋筒制作器,是我自己用工具做的。把桶里的面粉倒入这个盘中,约翰叔叔说。“然后加糖加水,搅拌一下,直到糖全部溶解。接着把把手关紧。”约翰叔叔本来想要表现得不那么在乎,但他却难掩激动之情。他快速地操作了一下,将机器打开了。一阵烟雾过后,从另一头送出来的是成品蛋筒。

Is it hard to use? Sam asked.

“这难用吗?”山姆问。

On the contrary. It's easy to use. Want to try?"

“恰恰相反,简单得很。想试试吗?”

Sam washed his hands with caution. He made a deliberate attempt to keep germs out of the dough. Soon, Sam had his first cone. He smiled in triumph!

山姆为了消除细菌而仔细地洗了手,尽量不让面团沾上细菌。很快,山姆就做出了一个蛋筒。他得意地笑了!

Uncle John tried to turn the machine off, but it just kept making cones. Sam and Uncle John put them on the counter, then on chairs. Before long, cones scattered all over the floor.

约翰叔叔想把机器关上,但机器却一直不停地在制作蛋筒,最后摆的到处都是,椅子上、柜台上都摆满了。很快,就摆得满地都是。

They tried everything to stop it, but it wouldn't stop!

他们试了各种方法让机器停止运转,但都没用!

What are we going to do? he said.

“我们该怎么办?”他问道。

Kick it! yelled Sam. Uncle John lifted his foot and gave the machine a kick. It made a funny noise and exploded. They were both covered with dough. Uncle John laughed when he knew Sam was OK. He tossed Sam a rag to clean his face and smiled. "I guess we have enough cones now!"

“踢它!”山姆喊道。约翰叔叔抬腿踢了一脚机器。紧接着而来的是一阵有趣的噪音,然后爆炸。两人身上都全是面团。知道山姆没事后,约翰叔叔笑了起来。他递给山姆一块毛巾擦拭脸上的面团并面露微笑。“现在这些蛋筒够吃上一阵的了!”
