there's one born every minute

總會有人受騙上當的;天下不怕沒有笨蛋;笨蛋無處不在。

例句:

  • He left a window open and then wondered why he'd been burgled! There's one born every minute, isn't there? (他有個窗戶沒關,卻納悶他家為何會遭小偷! 這個世界永遠不怕沒有笨蛋,不是嗎?)
  • I sold my old computer to someone who paid me more than double what it's really worth. Well, there's one born every minute. (我把我那部舊電腦賣給人家,他付給我的錢比電腦現在實際價值多了一倍以上。嘿,笨蛋真是無處不在)
