An American attorney1 had just finished a guest lecture at a law school in Italy when an Italian lawyer approached him and asked. "Is it true that a person can fall down on a sidewalk in your country and then sue2 the landowners for lots of money?"
 
Told that it was true, the lawyer turned to his partners and started speaking rapidly in Italian. When they stopped, the American attorney asked if they wanted to go to America to practice law.
 
"No, no." one replied. "We want to go to America and fall down on sidewalks."
 
一位美国律师刚结束他在意大利一所法律学校的客座演讲,就有一位意大利律师走近他问:“听说在你们国家里,一个人跌倒在人行道上,他就会起诉这块地的所有者赔偿很多钱,这是真的吗?”
 
得知这是真的后,意大利律师转向他的同行开始用意大利语快速谈论起来。当他们停下来后,美国律师问他们是否想去美国做法律工作。
 
“不,不,”有一个人回答说,“我们要去美国跌倒在人行道上。”
