画蛇添足
Adding Feet to a Snake

一天, 狮子先生举行一场聚会,许多动物都来了,他们喝很多酒。
One day, Mr. Lion holds a party. Many animals come and drink a lot of wine.

最后只剩一壶酒了。让谁喝呢?它们想了想,有个主意。它们比赛画蛇,谁最快画好,谁就喝这壶酒。
At last there is a pot of wine. Who can drink it? They think out an idea and decide to have a match of drawing a snake. If you finish first, you can get it.

不一会,狼先生画好了。“哈,我画好了,我是第一名。”他说。可是他又画了起来,他还说:“再给他加几只脚吧。”
Soon Mr. Wolf finishes drawing. "Yeah, I've finished. I'm No.1," he says. But he draws again and says, "Oh, let me add feet to my snake."

这时,猩猩先生也画好了。他拿起那酒壶喝起来。一边喝一边说:“那不是蛇,蛇是没有脚的,我赢了这壶酒。”
At the time, Mr. Gorilla also finishes. He takes away the pot of wine and drinks. He says, "That isn't a snake. Snakes have no feet. I get the wine."

成语“画蛇添足”用来比喻做多余的事,结果反而不恰当。
The idiom "adding feet to a snake" comes from this story and means to ruin the effect by adding what is superfluous.

Clinton is the evident front-runner in the Democrats' field of potential candidates, but it's too early for Republicans to have a clear favorite.

Ambassador Susan Rice for her public explanation of the attack. Conservatives have suggested that the White House tried to play down the incident to minimize its effect on the president's campaign.

These include the Oyster card for the London Underground that she bought herself to celebrate her recent 45th birthday, and the fact that, these days, she can travel on public transport mostly unnoticed. “I expect it’s because I tend to look like a bag of laundry when I’m out and about,” she self-deprecates. “Probably no one recognises me.”

magic story very thanks http://xnxx1.in.net/ xnxx download President Barack Obama and his national security staff, for instance, are betting a great deal on this social science theory right now as they bring to light the facts surrounding the Syrian government's use of chemical weapons against its own people. The White House believes more facts about Syria's chemical weapons use will lead to greater public and congressional support for military action, should diplomatic efforts with the help of the Russians not pan out. Once the public knows the truth about Syria's use of chemical weapons against its people, it will support military action regardless of political philosophy, the White House believes.

http://tiava.in.net/ tiava com The fastest way out of the president's dilemma is the political lifeline Kerry appears to be negotiating with the Russian foreign minister as an alternative to U.S.  military action in Syria. The president, seeing defeat before him in the Congress, in public opinion polls, among the hard left within his own party and among our closest allies in Europe, has embraced the Russian proposal almost as fast as the Russians could make it. Nothing the Russians have proposed provides a road map for ending the Syrian civil war, but it will keep the U.S. out of the Middle East and Syria which is why the Russians proposed the compromise. Meanwhile, Iranian influences grows and the civil war rages.
