playing with worms

蚯蚓一家这天很无聊,小蚯蚓就把自己切成两段打羽毛球去了,蚯蚓妈妈觉得这方法不错,就把自己切成四段打麻将去了,蚯蚓爸爸想了想,就把自己切成了肉末。蚯蚓妈妈哭着说:”你怎么这么傻?切这么碎会死的!”蚯蚓爸爸虚弱地说:”…突然想踢足球”

One day, a family of earthworms felt bored, so Little Worm cut himself into two sections to go play badminton.  Mommy Worm thought, “That’s not a bad idea,” and cut herself into four sections to go play majiang.  Daddy  Worm thought for a minute, and then cut himself into ground meat.  Mommy Worm cried, “How could you be so stupid? You die if you cut yourself into so many pieces!” Daddy Worm weakly replied, “…I suddenly thought of playing soccer.”
