joke:  Driven to Distraction

- Only in America can a pizza guy get to your door faster than an ambulance.

- Why do slow-down and slow-up mean the same thing?

- Why are wise man and wise guy opposites?

- Why is it that when stuff goes on a truck it's called a shipment and on a boat it's called cargo?

- Why do we drive in a parkway and park in a driveway?

- Why do we press harder on things when we know the batteries are dead?

help me with my questions, thanks!
slow-down, slow-up意思真的是一样的吧?
wise man, wise guy在英美文化里真的不一样吗, 褒贬之分吗?
parkway是行驶的车道,而 driveway是停车的车道吗? 真的不能混用吗?

货物运到船上了就不能叫shipment了吗? 还有车上的货物能不能叫做 cargo呢?

我的看法

slow down 翻译过来慢下来的意思,惯用法,而slow up从语法上讲才是真正的慢下来。
wise man是指明智的人,或者在某一方面有很深的知识的人,而wise guy是指自作聪明的傻瓜
parkway是指走车两边视野宽阔的大马路,driveway是公共马路到私人住宅之间的路,往往我们用来停私家车用。
