冷笑話:南海血書

南海血書

我再也支持不下去了:這些年來我看夠了各式各樣慘絕人寰的死亡,對我來說,死已算不了什麼大事。只是滿腔悲憤,一肚子委屈,不傾吐出來,實在嚥不下這口氣。在南海中一個不知名的珊瑚礁上,我脫下襯衫,用螺螄尖蘸著自己身上僅餘的鮮血來寫這封信。

我不知道該寫給誰?寫給天主吧?天主當吳廷琰被殺的時候就捨棄了越南子民;寫給佛祖吧?佛祖在和尚自焚的日子就已經自身難保了;寫給當年口口聲聲為我們爭自由謀幸福的民主鬥士吧?民主鬥士正在巴黎、倫敦、紐約忙著礎受自由幸福;寫給出錢出力硬逼著我們享受民主人權的偉大盟邦吧?偉大盟邦早已判決我們罪有應得又到別處去耍他們的老把戲去了。

寫給我自己的親人吧?我一家至親十一口:大哥死於越戰砲火之中;文斗姪兒在解放前一場暴動中為流彈所殺;九十三歲的老祖母和七歲的文媛姪女解放後在人民政府的照顧下活活餓死;一輩子絕口不談政治的父親在鬥爭大會上被一棒一棒地打死;二哥在集中營裏因忍不佳飢餓偷吃了一口番薯被綁赴刑場槍決;大嫂因莫須有的罪名庾死獄中;母親上船時被匪幹推下海裏淹死;妻在海上被海盜射殺;文星兒和我一同游泳來到這個珊瑚礁上,熬到第十三天就在萬般痛苦中死了,他的屍體被同來的難友吃了,吃他肉的難友也都死了。海天茫茫,如今我寫給誰呢?

我一家至親十一口都死在共匪暴政之下,你一定以為我恨透了這不共戴天的血海深仇,是的,我恨透了他們!復仇的烈火支持著我才能忍受這麼大的痛苦折磨。但是我還有更痛恨的仇人。吃人的老虎固然可恨,但是把別人送往老虎口裏的那個人更可恨;燒死人的火坑固然可怕,但是推別人下火坑的那個人更可怕;咬死人的毒蛇固然歹毒,但是把毒蛇放進你被窩裏的那個人比毒蛇更歹毒。是誰把我們送往老虎口裏?是誰把我們推下火坑?是誰把毒蛇放進我們的被窩裏?是他!就是他!是那些民主鬥士和偉大盟邦。…… (以下內容太悽慘,故略過。)

越打砲聲離西貢越近,行政效率更加顢頇,官吏再加貪污,人權更沒有保障。一次一次的政變,大使館裏一次一次傳出阮文紹下台,共產黨不來的天憲,無休無止的苦難一齊落到越南人民的頭上。偉大的盟友掉過頭來與虎謀皮,用越南幾千萬人民的生命換取諾貝爾和平獎金。一九七五年四月越南人民的末日終於來了。當初鬥士們要我們相信他一切都是為了我們好,保證絕對不會砸鍋沉船,他自己也在船上,他自己也從同一個鍋裏吃飯,他說的可真漂亮:船沉了,不管坐頭等艙或二等艙,都要淹死。我們當時竟傻得信以為真。後來船真的沉了,才發覺頭等艙裏還有直升飛機。看來我們真像他說的永遠只有十三歲。

盟友光榮勝利同國了,鬥士飛往巴黎、倫敦、紐約去逍遙自在去了。越南淪陷後的悲慘日子,說出來他們也不屑聽。誰願意冒險犯難雜鄉背井?誰願意到陌生的國度去被人家往海裏推?誰願意漂流到荒島上來吃自己愛子的肉?電線桿倘若有腳,電線桿也必設法逃出鐵幕。

在這孤島上我已撐持了四十二天了。叫天!天不應!喚地!地不靈!海天茫茫,有誰聽見我的呼喚?觀世音菩薩!耶穌基督!穆罕默德!太上老君!你們聽著:我好恨啊!我恨那些把我們送往虎口、推向火坑、把毒蛇放進我們被窩的鬥士、盟友,讓我活著咬他一口,死也甘心!

青木堂

以下摘自金庸鹿鼎記


眾香主散后,陳近南拉了韋小寶的手,回到廂房之中,說道:“北京天橋上有一個賣膏藥的老頭兒,姓徐。別人賣膏藥的旗子上,膏藥都是黑色的,這徐老兒的膏藥卻是一半紅、一半青。你要有可跟我聯絡,到天橋去找徐老兒便是。你問他:『有沒有清惡毒、便盲眼復明的清毒復明膏藥?』他說:『有是有,價錢太貴,要三兩黃金,三兩白銀。』你說:『五兩黃金,五兩白銀賣不賣?』他便知道你是誰了。”
韋小寶大感有趣,笑道:“人家貨价三兩,你卻還價五兩,天下哪有這樣的事?”
陳近南微笑道:“這是唯恐誤打誤撞,真有人向他去買『清毒復明膏藥』。他一聽你還價黃金五兩,白銀五兩,便問:『為什麼價錢這樣貴?』你說:『不貴,不貴,只要當真復得了明,便給你做牛做馬,也是不貴。』他便說:『地振高岡,一派溪山千古秀。』你說:『門朝大海,三河合水萬年流。』他又問:『紅花亭畔哪一堂?』你說:『青木堂。』他問:『堂上燒幾柱香?』你說:『五柱香。』燒五柱香便是香主。他是本會青木堂的兄弟,屬你該管。你有什麼事,可以交他辦。”

Taiwanese Hand Puppet Show

Before the invasion of movies, TV, and Internet, the big entertainment in Taiwan are hand puppet show and Taiwanese Opera. The stages are set in the court yard of Daoist/Buddist temples. In addition to regular festivals, sometimes, some rich people would sponsor the shows as a token of gratitude to Gods. In those temples, as people beg the Gods to grant them their wishes, they would also promised the Gods in advance the "price". The most comment way are sponsoring the shows. There have been unconventional ways, such as playing a beggar for one day.

After the introduction of the idiot box, both shows migrate to the stage over the radio waves. Once the hand puppet show became so popular the KMT government banned the show, claiming it affected the "national" productivity.

The shows these days are truly for the Gods, as there are very few human audiences. The performer becomes lazy. Back in those good old days, in addition to live bands, there are also special effects in the back stage. I had seen folks banging gun power to simulate the sound of punches. These days, most of the hand puppet shows plays tapes instead.

The following clip was taken in the evening of the Moon Festival in 2009. There were only one audience other than I.

Sung Than Cong: Bite Me! Encore/阮朝的天子之劍

Sung Than Cong: Bite Me! Encore/阮朝的天子之劍

Citadel, Hue, Vietnam/越南順化阮朝故宮
More about 越南
根據這本旅遊指南第130頁:

「大砲 Sung Than Cong

城堡內放著9座的大砲,那是1803年時所造的,象徵四季節令,花費了1年才完成。東側的4個象徵四季,西側的5個為意味著金、木、水、火、土的中國五行思想。砲台上還刻有其典故。」

According to the guide book above, on page 130, it reads:

"Cannon Sung Than Cong

There are 9 cannons inside the citadel. They were built in 1803, symbolizing the four seasons. It took one year to build. The four cannons at the east symbolizes the four seasons, the five at the west the Chinese five elements: metal, wood, water, fire, and earth. The reference is engraved at the base."

當我逛到這裡時已是黃昏,天色漸暗。我只有時間看「四時」,來不及看「五行」。我沒看到砲台,但是我知道這九座砲的典故:「裹以四時」「制以五行」典出莊子雜篇說劍。阮皇自詡為天子,這九座砲是他的「天子之劍」。

It was dusk when I found these cannons. I only had time for the "four seaons", but not the "five elements." I did not find the base, but I recognize the reference. This is another defiant middle finger to China. Another claim to the throne of the world.

The reference is from a story from a Chinese Daoist book: Zhuang Zi (aka Chuang Tzu). Some scholars suspect that that chapter was faked by later folks. In that story, there was a war lord who appreciated the art of fencing. He had swordsmen dueling at his court days and nights. The casualty was mounting, and the country weaken. The crown prince seek councel from a Daoist philosopher: Zhuang Zi. He told the lord that he had three swords to offer. One was for the Heavenly Child (King of the World) another for war lords, and the other for peasants. He managed to convince the war lord by questioning him why he wield the peasants' sword while he had the chance to wield the Heavenly Child's. His description to the Heavenly Child's swords included "wrapped in the four seasons" and "controled by the five elements."

The Vietnamese emperor was proclaiming these nine cannons were parts of his "sword" of Heavenly Child by naming his cannons as "four seaons" and "five elements."

勘誤:逝去的武林

這段拳經取自薛顛等著的形意拳術講義:
More about 形意拳術講義
第六頁:

其中「能在一思進,莫在一思。」因手民誤植,實乃「能在一思進,莫在一思退。」在形意拳術講義一書中,在目錄前一頁,附有以下勘誤表:


逝去的武林一書的作者可能是漏看勘誤表了。

後來發現,不止逝去的武林一書是如此,連李天驥老師的形意拳術、楊遵利老師的形意拳述真也都犯此錯誤。這兩位老師都是劉奇蘭祖師系統。在下認為,可能這些書都是學生代筆,掛老師的名字出版。而學生又是天下文章一大抄,大家都抄到薛顛大師的經典傳世之作。

電子版:李仲軒老人形意述真
文中

李先生1988年講述:形意簡單的練法就是練「」(校按:不知何字),這個部首叫「走之」。「、」,這一點,就是沉著,拳要先練這個勁,一沉能著上,著上就是一沉。身子往下一沉,手能著上對方,千招萬勢都可以這麼打人。有了渾身一沉,看懂八打歌訣,渾身能沉能著。但作一個死錘子,光錘這一下也不行。沉下去,還要能起來,但這一起可就鳳舞龍翔了,一把錘子變成十八般兵器。「、」要扯成「[]」。這是身法變化,也是勁催的。轉七星,有了一沉再轉,從一沉裡轉出新東西來。形意拳在「走之」裡。

一段,根據逝去的武林一書,(校按:不知何字)[]一字是繁體漢字不作部首,用在字裡的「辵」部。如「這」字去「言」。

Gianni Morandi e Emma Shapplin - Vento

Gianni Morandi e Emma Shapplin - Vento


Senti questa pioggia come entra nelle ossa,
mi sembra di tornare ancor bambino
mi ricordo i lampi
quella notte sopra i monti
mi sembra di sentirti qui vicino
ma adesso tu dove sarai
e quanta strada c’è tra noi

Vento porta il mio canto,
digli che l’amo sempre, lo porto dentro
vola sulle montagne
digli che presto io lo incontrerò

Quanta nostalgia in questa notte quasi mia,
mi sembra di sentire la sua voce
sarà la sinfonia delle gocce per la via
che mi toglie ogni paura di soffrire
ma chissà adesso dove sei
e che distanza c’è tra noi

Vento porta il mio canto,
digli che l’amo sempre, ma dolcemente
vela attraverso il mare
digli che l’amo e sempre l’amerò

Cercala in fondo al cuore,
nelle pianure aperte
o in riva al mare
vola nel firmamento
dille che l’amo e sempre l’amerò
dille che l’amo e sempre l’amerò
dille che l’amo e sempre l’amerò.

冷笑話:哪國洋女婿最愛臺灣老婆?

冷笑話:

問:哪國洋女婿最愛臺灣老婆?

答:義大利。有歌為證。

說起愛,法國人就想到阿母(amour)

Enzo Enzo - Toussou

所以法國人最愛的是娘。



一要愛,西班牙人就叫阿嬤(amar)

Le Cirque du Soleil - Querer
所以西班牙人最愛阿嬤。


而義大利人一提起愛,立刻想到老婆:「啊!某呢?」(amore)

Andrea Bocelli - Per Amore: "Per amore, hai mai fatto niente..."
由此可證,義大利女婿最愛臺灣老婆。




Io conosco la tua strada,
ogni passo che farai,
le tue ansie chiuse e i vuoti,
sassi che allontanerai
senza mai pensare che
come roccia io ritorno in te...
Io conosco i tuoi respiri,
tutto quello che non vivi,
riconoscerlo non puoi.
E sarebbe come se
questo cielo in fiamme
ricadesse in me,
come scena su en attore...

Per amore,
hai mai fatto niente
solo per amore,
hai sfidato il vento e urlato mai,
diviso il cuore stesso,
pagato e riscommesso,
dietro questa mania
che resta solo mia?

Per amore,
hai mai corso senza flato
per amore,
perso e ricominciato?
E devi dirlo adesso
quanto di te ci hai messo,
quanto hai creduto tu
in questa bugia.
E sarebbe come se
questo fiume in piena
risalisse a me,
come china al suo pittore.

Per amore,
hai mai speso tutto quanto, la ragione,
il tuo orgoglio fino al pianto?
Lo sai stasera resto,
non ho nessun pretesto,
soltanto une mania
che resta forte e mia
dentro quest'anima che strappi via.
E te lo dico adesso,
sincero con me stesso,
quanto mi costa non saperti mia.
E sarebbe come se
tutto questo mare
annegasse in me.

Penn and Teller Explain Sleight of Hand


This is my favorite routine from Penn and Teller. They are two of my favorite magicians/comedians. In this routine, they demonstrated 7 principles of magic in a very subtle way.

這是阿潘跟鐵樂的演出中我最喜歡的段子。他們是我最欣賞的相聲演員/魔術師之一。在這個段子裡,他們用很含蓄而爆笑的手法演示了七個魔術的原理。鐵樂一上場就不停地變魔術,但卻一點都看不出他有在變魔術,直到阿潘解釋之後,才看得出鐵樂變了哪些魔術。
