胡適在1960年11月8日與胡頌平說" 報章對 他的 "美國總統大選見聞"的記錄 錯誤之多 無從改起....." (胡適之先生晚年談話錄 頁82)

"要在他(尼克森)面上 smile--就是要在他的臉上塗上泥巴" (胡適之先生晚年談話錄 美國總統競選年1960 前)
這種俚俗用 smile 一字, 現在字典也不容易查得到.....我在The Concise Oxford Dictionary 查到一動詞用法,意思是"嘲弄或無視於....."






Toward the end of my stay, I encountered a baul singer alongside the road, strumming an ektara, a guitarlike instrument with a single string. He waved and I steered my bike toward him.
With their unruly hair, matted beards and saffron kurtas, the singers (baul means “crazy”) are difficult to miss. Neither Hindu nor Muslim, they are said to be insane with the love of God and wander the countryside, as they have for centuries, singing enigmatic songs about the blessings of madness and the life of a seeker. Tagore adored the bauls, and even declared himself one of them.
