            A man named Nanguo heard about the king's hobby, he thought that it was a good opportunity to make money. So he ran to Qi xuanwang and bragged: "I am a famous musician that everyone was moved by my performance. Even the birds will dance and the flowers will sway when I play the yu, and I want to give my skills to you." Qi xuanwang was very happy, without an examination, he added him into the musician team.

            有个南郭先生听说了齐宣王的爱好,觉得有机可乘,是个赚钱的好机会。就跑到齐宣王那里去,吹嘘说:“大王啊,我是个有名的乐师,听过我吹竽的人没有不被感动的,就是小鸟听了也会翩翩起舞,花草听了也会合着节拍颤动,我愿把我的绝技献给大王。”齐宣王听得高兴,不加考察,很痛快地收下了他,把他也编进那支300人的吹竽乐队中。


            In fact, Mr. Nanguo was lying, and he didn't play the Yu at all. When he plays, he took the Yu mixed into the team and shaked his body and head. Pretended an emotion expressed on his face. Nanguo cheated the king and got the salary without work day by day.

            其实,南郭先生是在说谎,他压根儿就不会吹竽。每逢演奏的时候,南郭先生就捧着竽混在队伍中,人家摇晃身体他也摇晃身体,人家摆头他也摆头,脸上装出一副动情的样子。南郭先生就这样靠着蒙骗混过了一天又一天,不劳而获地白拿工钱。

            But a few years later, Qi xuanwang who like team play was dead. His son Qi minwang inherited the throne. Qi minwang also like to listen to the Yu, but he was different with his father. He liked to listen to the solo. So he announced an order that the 300 musicians should practice and prepare to play the Yu one by one.

            可是好景不长,过了几年,爱听竽合奏的齐宣王去世了,他的儿子齐湣(mǐn)王继承了王位。齐湣王也爱听吹竽,可是他和齐宣王不一样,他喜欢听个人独奏。于是发布了一道命令,要这300个人好好练习,做好准备,他将让这300人轮流来一个个地吹竽给他欣赏。


            The musicians practiced actively and wanted to show up. Only Nanguo was very urgent like ants on a hot pot. He thought over and over again. This time, he couldn't pretend any more. So he packed up his baggage and went away at night.

            乐师们知道命令后都积极练习,想一展身手,只有那个滥竽充数的南郭先生急得像热锅上的蚂蚁。他想来想去,觉得这次再也混不过去了,只好连夜收拾行李逃走了。
