entellektüel mizah

Her Bakımdan "Advanced" !!


Entellektüel yönü güçlü okurlarımız için çeşitli İnternet kaynaklarından [özellikle  http://eserver.org/philosophy/ ] derlediğim buradaki harika mizah metnine sıkıcı açıklamalar eklemekten kaçındım.  Okuma zevkinize limon sıkmak istemedim. Yabancı dili henüz bu düzeyde olmayan okurlarımıza yönelik bir teşvik olarak da değerlendirilmesini rica ederim.

Ayrıca, Türkçe internet sayfalarında araştırma yaparak dilimize çeşitli çevirilerini bulabilirsiniz. Anahtar sözcükleriniz: "Tavuk neden (karşıdan) karşıya geçti?" "Civciv neden (karşıdan) karşıya geçti?" vb. Yani, dikkatler tavuklar ve civcivler üstüne yoğunlaşmış.

Efendim, bendeniz ise daha çok, özel uzmanlık alanım olan "piliçler" üstüne odaklanmayı tercih ettim. mizah

Bazı tahrifat ve eklemelere tevessül etmiş olduğumu da itiraf ederim. Kısacası, buradaki metin yer yer bayağı bir özgündür. Yalçın İzbul, http://www.ingilizce-ders.com

Machiavelli: So that her retinue will view her with admiration, as a chicken which has the daring and courage to boldly cross the road, but also with fear for she whom among them has the strength to contend with such a paragon of avian virtue. In such a manner is the princessly chicken's dominion maintained.

King Richard III: A cock, a cock! My kingdom for a cock!

Sir Isaac Newton: Chickens at rest tend to stay at rest. Chickens in motion tend to cross the road.

Darwin: It was the logical next step after coming down from the trees.

Werner Heisenberg: The chicken is distributed probabalistically on all sides of the road until you observe it on the side of your course. We are not sure which side of the road the chicken was on, but it was moving very fast.
