A boy begs his father to get him a Christmas tree this year.
一个孩子求他爸爸,说能不能今年为家里准备一棵圣诞树

Each year, the boy asks and the father tells him, "I don't want to pay for it."
小男孩每年求他爸爸得到的都是同样的回答“我可不想为一棵树付钱。”(这个爸爸肯定不是基督教徒,而且还非常抠门)

But the son kept begging. Unable to bear his son's whining, he picks up his axe one day and heads out of the house.
但是小男孩不放弃的一直祈求,终于有一天,他爸被他的哀求折磨得受不了,他拿起一把斧子,直接冲出了门。

Thirty minutes later he returns with a great big Christmas tree. "How did you cut it down so fast?" his son asks.
30分钟后,他爸爸带着一棵超大的圣诞树回到了家。他儿子问:“你怎么会砍得那么快?”

"I didn't cut it down," the father replies.
他爸爸回答到:“我不是砍的”

"I got it at a tree lot."
“我是从一个圣诞树销售中心拿的”

"Then why did you bring an axe?"
“那你为什么还要带把斧子去呢?”

"Because I didn't want to pay."
“因为我不想付钱”(敢情这爸爸勒索啊)
