The thief who hacksaws off your catalytic converter may get less money than he bargained for at the
scrapyard, but that’s cold comfort when you’re walking home.

文章背景,铜铝等金属掉价,但是仍有不少人窃取拿到废品站换钱。

尽管小偷在锯掉了你汽车上用于净化排气的净化转换器后,到废品站去卖的时候,这些废铁的价格比原来下降了,小偷并没有得到多少钱的情况下,仍不能给你带来任何慰藉,因为你要走着回家了。。。有点幽默了吗?

先谢谢你,呵呵,其实这句子是在看一篇报道时无意间发现的,文章的思辨性非常强,只是到最后才来了这么一句,看到这句自然的就笑了,可是翻不出来,也许这个句子就只能意会了,sigh,看了翻译就觉得作者要表达就这么个意思,笑不出来了,sigh
