[英文短篇] 双语幽默故事:写给上帝的信

A little boy needed $50 very badly and prayed for weeks, but nothing happened.

有个小男孩非常需要50美元,他为此祷告了数周但是什么也没发生。

Then he decided to write God a letter requesting the $50. When the post office received the letter to God, USA, they decided to send it to the President.
后来,他决定写封信向上帝索要这50美元。邮局接到这封信,想了想觉得还是应该交给总统比较好。
The president was so amused that he instructed his secretary to send the boy a $5.00 bill. The president thought this would appear to be a lot of money to a little boy.
总统被逗笑了,于是指示秘书寄给小男孩5美元,因为他觉得5美元对于一个小孩来讲已经是不少了。
The little boy was delighted with the $5.00 bill and sat down to write a thank-you note to God, which read: Dear God: Thank you very much for sending the money.
小男孩收到了钱很高兴,给上帝回了一封感谢信,信里写道:尊敬的上帝,非常感谢你把钱寄给我。
However, I noticed that for some reason you sent it through Washington, D.C., and, as usual, those turkeys kept $45 in taxes.
然而,我发现这些钱是通过白宫寄出的,因此,和往常一样,那帮家伙收了我45美元的税。
