南方的sassiness如果能融成一句话,那一定是bless your heart。 这是一个很妙的句子,可以用于各种场合。 1. 表达同情 2. 你有点蠢,但这也没办法
A:我的狗去世了 B:Oh no, bless its heart.
A:20+20=50 B:Oh darling, bless your heart.
A:Candy corns are awesome! B:Bless your heart.
从It‘s a Southern Thing摘的一些例子: Here are some examples of ways to use bless your heart: Beginner''s Level, Sincere: "I just heard your dog went in for a colonoscopy, bless its little heart. Could I bring over a squash casserole?" Beginner''s Level, Sarcastic: "It''s like she doesn''t even own a mirror, bless her heart." Advanced Level, Sincere: "I heard Merle is still recovering from surgery (whisper) down there, bless his heart." Advanced Level, Sarcastic: "You really need to get your money back from that hair stylist, bless your heart." Expert Level (do not try this without years of practice or it will backfire): First, some background. I had a friend in high school who was very sweet with a very soft, sweet voice. One day, someone in our group of friends said something particularly moronic and she responded with, "Bless your heart, you''re so stupid." I can still hear the words in her soothing-but-pitying drawl. She was not being sarcastic; she was not being mean. The doltish friend ended up just laughing, and all was well. Such is the power of "bless your heart."

讽刺用法大概相当于南方人委婉一些的:You’re dumb, but that’s alright.
