so lucky you could die


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)
