Bird of pray

祈祷的鸡



When news went round last year that a house in Swansea looked like Hitler, there were many people who doubted it – until they saw the photograph. After that it was found that any number of cats, and even a goldfish, looked like the unlamented Führer. So the idea that a church might accidentally look like a chicken could not be ruled out a priori. Yet it still seemed unlikely until photographic evidence was provided: the Church by the Sea at Tampa, Florida, not only resembles a chicken, but a chicken with attitude.

去年有一则新闻说英国斯温西的一栋房子看起来像希特勒,许多人都怀疑是不是真的——直到他们看到那栋房子的照片。从那以后,就连里面的那些猫以及里面的一条金鱼人们都觉得看起来像那不被人惋惜的领袖。而一个看起来像鸡的教堂也令人费解,直到人们看到了这个教堂的照片:佛罗里达州坦帕市的海边的教堂,不仅仅是一只鸡,而且还是一只很有个性的鸡。



These unintended lookalikes are a welcome change from the City skyscrapers given nicknames because of their contrived shapes: the Cheesegrater, the Helter-Skelter, the Walkie-Talkie. Those are as unsatisfactorily inauthentic as chicken nuggets made in the shape of dinosaurs.

这些不经意的发现的确给拥有大量摩天大楼的都市带来了别样的风情,由于其人为的造型,所以人们给它取了些绰号:the Cheesegrater(奶酪摩擦机), the Helter-Skelter(狼狈,慌张), the Walkie-Talkie(搬弄是非的鸡)。这些绰号都是不真实的,因为这些鸡块以恐龙的形态出现。
