Feifei
大家好,欢迎收听《地道英语》,我是冯菲菲,还有我的搭档…

Rob
And me Rob. Hello!

Feifei
So Rob, what's that thing you've got over there?

Rob
Oh this? It's a barrel [tapping on wooden barrel]…

Feifei
大木桶 a barrel。I see.

Rob
And do you want to know what's inside the barrel?

Feifei
Not really.

Rob
OK – well if I open the lid you'll be able to hear [Opens lid and sounds of laughing] – funny isn't it?!

Feifei
[not impressed] You have a barrel of laughs“一桶笑声”。And that is supposed to be funny?

Rob
It's supposed to illustrate today's piece of authentic real English. It's hilarious, isn't it! And you know what – the phrase 'a barrel of laughs' can be used to describe me – someone who is fun and always joking around.

Feifei
Really? 原来短语 a barrel of laughs 可以用来形容那些总是喜欢开玩笑,给人们带来快乐的人。But this doesn't describe you Rob – you're not funny.

Rob
Oh? What?! I think we better hear some examples of this phrase in action – and I'll show you how funny I really am…

Examples
I shall miss having John in the office. He was such a barrel of laughs.

What a barrel of laughs that bus driver was. He made the long journey much more fun with his funny announcements!

Since I split up with my boyfriend, life hasn't been a barrel of laughs.

Feifei
这么说,其实这个短语可以理解为汉语里常说的“开心果”,形容一个幽默的、逗人开心笑的人。谁说不是呢,我们都喜欢身边有个“开心果”。 

Rob
By the way, 'a barrel of laughs' can also be used to describe a thing, such as a TV show. But come on Feifei, you have to agree, this barrel full of laughs is so funny! Listen again [Opens lid again: laughter].

Feifei
Hmm, it's a cheap joke but it's not funny. I know what you can do if you want to make me laugh…

Rob
Oh yes – go on, what is it?

Feifei
Why don't you see if you can fit inside the barrel?

Rob
Oh, right, well, that sounds like a laugh. OK, here goes… [Sound of Rob getting in] Getting in… I'm in Feifei.

Feifei
Wow Rob – you actually fit in the barrel! 我算是佩服了,Rob 还真能钻进这个木桶 里去。我只需要把桶盖儿盖上就行了。That's so funny!

Rob
Hey, Feifei, what are you doing?

Feifei
Making you into a real life 'barrel of laughs'

Rob
That's not funny.

Feifei
It's hilarious! See you later.
