今天再次查词典才把conveyor belt弄懂,而这句话也就看起来很搞笑了。

Everybody Loves Raymond中这句“Funky Cold Medina”也算有点眉目了。

"Funky Cold Medina" is a hip hop song written by Young MC and performed by Tone Lōc, and was the second single From his album Loc'ed After Dark (1989). The single was released on March 18 1989 and rose to #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in April 1989. It peaked on the UK Singles Chart at #13 the next month.

The song is about the adventures of Tone Loc after he receives a love potion called Funky Cold Medina From a friend. In the song, he first tests the potion on his dog, who immediately latches onto his leg and attempts sex with him. Tone's encounters with people were also not what he intended; first he attracts a transvestite, then a woman intent on marriage From the very first date.

今天看Growing Pains,102中迈克说了一句话,是whlie you were sleepingjoe说的那个“Ice Capades”,看来对于通过语音来记忆单词是非常有趣的事情。

我有时能通过想象来感觉出能随意说英语和英语成为我母语。这很有助于我学习,就像运动员上场前通过想象来进行赛前整个过程。
