A pair of honeymooners checked into the Watergate Hotel in Washington, D. C. That night, as the husband was about to turn off the light, his bride asked, "Do you think this room is bugged1?"
 
"That was a long time ago, sweet-heart," he reassured2 her.
 
"But what if there's a microphone somewhere? I'd be so embarrassed."
 
So the groom3 searched under the tables and behind the pictures. Then he turned back the rug. Sure enoush, there was a funny-looking gizmo in the floor. He took out the screws, got rid of the hardware, and climbed into bed.
 
The next morning the newly weds4 were awakened5 by a hotel clerk who wanted to know if they had slept well. "We did," replied the groom. "Why do you ask?"
 
"It's rather unusual." The clerk answered, "Last night the couple in the room below yours had a chandelier fall on them."
 
有一对正在华盛顿度蜜月的新婚夫妇, 他们来到水门旅馆登记住宿。到了晚上,丈夫刚要熄灯,新娘子问道:“你觉得房间里会不会装有窃听器?”
 
“亲爱的,那都是多少年前的事了。”丈夫劝她打消这种念头。
 
“然而假如真的藏着传声器,那该怎么办呢?叫人多难堪啊!”
 
因此,新郎搜查了一圈,从桌子底下和挂画后面的墙壁。最后,他翻开了地毯。不出所料,地板上有个外表奇特的小东西。他拧下螺丝,拆掉零件,之后就上床睡觉了。
 
第二天早上,这对新人被旅馆的工作人员的敲门声惊醒。工作人员问他们晚上睡得怎么样。 “很好啊,”新郎回答到,“为什么你要问这个问题呢?”
 
“这太奇怪了,”工作 人员说道,“昨天夜里,你们楼下那对夫妇被枝型吊灯砸了。”
