  Vacationing on the island of Oahu, we were waiting in our tour bus for some stragglers to show up. A man, obviously not with our group, approached the bus and was about to board. How would our driver handle the situation, we wondered. Straight-faced, he leaned toward the door and asked, "Going to the nudist Colony, sir?"


  "Oh, no," replied the would-be passenger, retreating quickly.


  "Works every time," the driver said with a wink.

  “哦,不,”刚想乘车的男子回答说,迅速转身而逃。


  “每次都管用,”司机眨巴了一下眼睛说。
