I am *NOT* familiar with the characters in this cartoon at all---我说怎么这英文看着别扭呢!

看来我还是孤苦零丁啊!


Adeley: pick something more conventional: this is about a cancer stricken female lawyer, Lisa.

Cancer isn't funny. Funky Winkerbean is.
FYI:
http://stuck-funky.blogspot.com/search/label/Les
Set-up: As this day mercifully comes to a close, Les finally takes off his glasses, smirks (again) and makes a comment about *House Makeover Porn.* Lisa's been thinking about *More Immediate Concerns.* In the world of FW, this only has one outcome...

Punchline: Sorry Les, you can't talk your way into this one. A focused, career woman such as Lisa needs to keep her eyes on the prize. The exchange of maritals will have to wait for another time. Les should know Lisa's order of priority: cancer, career, biological son, house makeover porn, angst, pizza, carnal knowledge with Les.

Actually, today's FW made me laugh a little to myself. I was duped into thinking this would turn into a sex romp ala Sally Forth. However, this is the world of FW where only important issues are tackled and sex is best practiced in the past.

Also, Lisa being a lawyer means she could have done due diligence on the identity of her son at any time on the job. Yet Les takes time out of his hectic teaching schedule to go through the procurement process. That's either love...or a plot hole.

Hi:

porn 这里不是"pornography" 而是"garbage"的含义(节目质量低俗)

Hope it helps

oh,my god, I should have checked my dictionary:

Concise Oxford English Dictionary     

•  porn  

(also porno) informal

■  noun pornography. ▶television programmes, books, ...



That's exactly right hly2008. The use of the word "porn" in the comic is meant as humor for an obsession. In this case it is for television shows on home decorating and remodeling. When people say it, they are telling that person perhaps they are spending too much time with something.

Thanks:-)

My translation:
你又在看那专让你们这些人上瘾的节目了?
你又在看那专门哄像你这样的人的节目了?
你又在看那七搞八搞的节目了?
你又在看那骗人的节目了?
你又在看那无聊的节目了?
你又在看那低俗的节目了?


(sorry, if some versions may appear vulgar to you)

I apologize I am not very good at Chinese, but I think 你又看那让人上瘾节目了? is the best translation since obsession and addiction are very close.
