這是美國 CBS 60 Minutes (六十分鐘 ) 主持人 Andy Rooney 對 40 歲以上的女人的看法 :
As I grow in age, I value women over 40 most of all.
隨著年齡增長 , 我越來越珍惜 40歲以上的女人
Here are just a few reasons. why:
A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask,
'What are you thinking?'
40 歲以上的女人不會在半夜把你吵醒, 然後問你 : 你在想什麼 ?
She doesn't care what you think.
If a woman over 40 doesn't want to watch the game,
she doesn't sit around you whining about it.
She does something she wants to do, and it's usually more interesting.
Women over 40 are dignified.
They seldom have a screaming match with you at the operaor or in the middle of an expensive restaurant.
Of course, you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get away with it.
當然，如果你罪有應得，她們也可能神不知鬼不覺地 . 一槍把你給斃了。
Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved.
熟女不吝於讚美 , 不管是不是實至名歸.
They know what it's like to be unappreciated.
Women get psychic as they age.
You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40.
你永遠不需要向 40 歲以上的女人懺悔.
Once you get past a wrinkle or two,
a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart.
Older women are forth right and honest.
They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk if you are acting like one.
You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her.
Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons.
40 歲以上的女人有很多優點 .
Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal.
For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40,
相對於每一個性感、 迷人的 40歲以上的女人
there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants
making a fool of himself with some 20-year old waitress.
厚臉皮地跟小他 20 歲的美眉調情
Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say,
女士們，請容許我在這兒 , 幫妳們說句公道話:
'Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free ?
' 那些說 只想喝免費的牛奶而不願買頭母牛 回家的男人
here's an update for you.
Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why ?

Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage !
