去年底的九合一大選中最受矚目的一戰非台北市莫屬,市長候選人柯文哲和連勝文雙方陣營的相互攻防情勢簡直跟八點檔連續劇一樣戲劇化。而柯文哲的高票當選也讓大家把矛頭指向了對手陣營的總幹事蔡正元以及同政黨的立委羅淑蕾,紛紛指稱他們根本是柯陣營派去反助選的超級臥底。

上個星期西門雙屍案主嫌陳福祥也在睡夢中被警方輕鬆逮捕,雖然後來有查出破案關鍵跟「鯊魚」的公開留言沒有關係(見下圖),不過也讓原本矢口否認拿錢的嫌犯百口莫辯。

那我們就來學學「不怕神一樣的對手,就怕豬一樣的隊友」,這句話的英文怎麼說?

With friends like these, who needs enemies?

中文直譯:有這樣的朋友,誰還需要敵人?

對,就是那麼簡單!這句諺語其實已經流傳很久了,大家也別硬把神和豬翻成英文放進句子裡,這會讓句子聽起來冗長而且令人疑惑。


 

~西門雙屍案英語懶人包~

Taipei police just arrested Chen Fu-hsiang (陳福祥), who is suspected of committing a double murder in a Ximending parking garage earlier this month. Forensic evidence ties Chen to the fatal shootings of Tsai Tsong-yu (蔡宗育) and Tsai Kai-yang (蔡鎧陽), aged 24 and 21, in the E-mei (峨眉) parking garage on Jan. 13.

台北警方逮捕了月初時犯下西門町停車場槍擊案的主嫌陳福祥;鑑識證據指出陳福祥就是這個月十三號在峨嵋停車場殘忍槍殺二十四歲蔡宗育及二十一歲蔡鎧陽的兇手。

After 12 days on the run, Chen was arrested in a high-rise studio apartment in Greater Taoyuan. Chen was asleep with a firearm on hand when the police team entered, but no violence occurred at the point of arrest. After the arrest, Taipei police arrested three other men suspected of aiding and abetting Chen during the 12-day manhunt.

在逃十二天之後,陳福祥在桃園一幢大樓之中的套房內被警方逮捕,陳嫌當時正在睡夢中,手中還握著槍。落網之後警方也逮捕了其他三個在這十二天的搜捕行動中幫助及教唆陳嫌逃亡的犯人。

All suspects have been taken into custody and sent to Taipei for questioning.

所有嫌犯均已被聲請羈押送至台北訊問。
