so lucky you could die

一对情侣一起去殉情,可是他们身上的钱只够买一瓶农药,而且这瓶农药的药量只够一个人死,可是最后他们两个人都死了,这是为什么呢?答案:他们买了这瓶农药,打开瓶盖,瓶盖上写着:再来一瓶!

Two lovers were going to commit suicide together, but they only had enough money on them to buy one bottle of pesticide, and one bottle would only be enough to kill one person.  However, in the end, they both died.  How was this?

Answer: They purchased the bottle of pesticide and opened it up.  Inside the cap was written “receive one free bottle!”

一对情侣, yi dui(r) qinglv- a couple of lovers

殉情, xun qing- to die for love, ( in this case, “commit suicide together”)

农药, nong yao- fertilizer

瓶盖, ping gai(r)- bottle cap

再来一瓶, zai lai yi ping-  literally, “get another bottle” (in this case, “receive one free bottle”, a promotional contest prize)
