He Was Only Wrong by Two

  Jack Hawkins was the football coach at an Amercian college, and he was always trying to find good players, but they weren‘t always smart enought to be accepted by the college.

  One day the coach brought an excellent young player to the dean of the college and asked that the student be allowed to enter without an examination. "Well," the dean said after some persuasion, "I‘d better ask him a few questions first."

  Then he turned to the student and asked him some very easy questions, but the student didn‘t know any of the answers.

  At last the dean said, "Well, what‘s five times seven?"

  The student thought for a long time and then answered, "Thirty-six."

  The dean threw up his hands and looked at the coach in despair, but the coach said earnestly, "Oh, please let him in, sir! He was only wrong by two."


  他的得數只比正確答案多二

  杰克霍金斯是美國一所學院的橄欖球隊教練,他竭力想物色好球員。但是好球員學業不行,院方不愿錄取。

  有一天,教練帶著一位優秀的年輕球員去見院長,希望院方同意他免試入學。經過一番勸說后院長說:“那我最好先問問他幾個問題。”

  然后他轉向學生,問了幾個非常簡單的問題。可是那個學生一個也答不上來。

  最后院長說:“那么,五乘七得多少?”

  學生想了很久,然后回答說:“三十六。”

  院長攤開雙手失望地看了看教練。可是教練認真地說,“噢,錄取他吧,先生。他的答案只比正確答案多二。”
