随着脱口秀搬上银幕,谐音梗被带火了。

比如,一些脱口秀演员为了写出“新梗”,差点得了“心梗”等等。

那么,英语里有谐音梗吗?

答案是肯定的。英语母语者也喜欢用谐音和双关(pun)开玩笑,这些梗大概率比较冷,有点像爸爸们喜欢开的玩笑,他们称这种冷笑话为dad jokes。

A dad joke is a short joke, typically a pun, presented as a one-liner or a question and answer, but not a narrative. Generally inoffensive, dad jokes are stereotypically told by fathers among family, either with sincere humorous intent, or to intentionally provoke a negative reaction to its overly-simplistic humor.

“dad joke”是种短笑话,通常是双关语,以一句话或问答的形式出现,但不是在讲一个故事。一般来说,“爸爸笑话”是没有恶意的,一般认为是爸爸和家人们讲的。要么是在真在开玩笑,要么就是故意地制造“冷感”。

比如说美剧《摩登家庭》里的爸爸菲尔(Phil),就经常用谐音梗讲一些冷段子,他跟家人们讲的段子,真的是名副其实的“dad joke”了。
