Feifei
大家好,歡迎來到 BBC 英語教學制作的《地道英語》節目,我是馮菲菲。 

Neil
And I’m Neil. 

Feifei
And Neil – you look different. I just can’t tell what it is… 

Neil
Oh, you mean my hair? My pink hair? 

Feifei
Yes, why on earth did you do that?! Neil 染了一頭粉色的頭發,他這到底是要干什么? 

Neil
Ah, you know me, Feifei. I did it for the lolz!

Feifei
Right. Well, it is pretty… funny.

Neil
Thanks. It’s my birthday today and I thought I’d do something fun. If you do something ‘for the lolz’, it means you do it for fun. 

Feifei
Neil 說他染頭發的目的就是為了“好玩”。現代英語中,新詞“lolz”的意思是“玩笑,逗樂”。如果你“do something for the lolz”,那么你做這件事其實就是為了“開個玩笑,找個樂兒”。Oh, and happy birthday by the way. 

Neil
Younger every year. Now, lolz is a close relation of another slang term: LOL. 

Feifei
Lolz 和 LOL 兩個詞象親戚一樣。LOL 是“laughing out loud 大聲笑”的縮寫,大家通常在發短信或社交媒體上使用它,用來感嘆某件事“好笑,有趣”。比如:Neil, your hair looks amazing, LOL. 

Neil
Why is that a joke? My hair does look great. Anyway. Lolz can be used in the same way. 

Feifei
Your hair looks amazing, lolz. 

Neil
Thanks. Or we can use it in the phrase ‘for the lolz’ as I mentioned earlier. 

Feifei
咱們來聽些例句吧! 

Neil
Or I could play my banjo, for the lolz?

Feifei
Maybe later! Listen to these examples. 

Examples
A: You’re putting so many chillies on your pizza?! Why?
B: For the lolz. Gonna be hot! 

I collect teapots. Everyone tells me it’s pointless but I do it for the lolz. 

I’m going to convince everyone I’m an astronaut, just for the lolz.

Feifei
好了,以上列舉了 lolz 的使用方法。So, how long will your hair stay pink, Neil?

Neil
It’s permanent. Unless I dye it again. 

Feifei
Seriously?

Neil
Just kidding. Anyway, Feifei, I’ve got an idea. 

Feifei
Oh, yeah? 

Neil
Why don’t you… walk through the office singing Happy Birthday to me? 

Feifei
But… Why?

Neil
For the lolz, of course! 

Feifei
Of course. Bye. 

Neil
Goodbye.
