                                 A
    For those of you who where born in the year of the pig, good luck and much success! This is your year.
    When talking to a Westerner, however, you’ve got to be a little careful when you talk about pigs. Chinese people view the pig as a smart (聪明) and prosperous (rich, lucky) animal. Western ideas tend to be a little more negative(否定的).
    A pig in the West is seen as a dirty, lazy, and fat animal. If anyone ever called you a pig, you wouldn’t be smiling. When a person doesn’t like someone, sometimes he will call that person a pig.
    If you ever meet a Westerner who was born in the year of the pig, don’t say, “Oh, you’re a pig!” Most Westerners will be understanding. They will be sure that you made some kind of a mistake. However, don’t take any chances. You might just offend(触怒)someone who does not share your positive(积极)ideas about pigs.

A. they worship pigs best of all
B. they consider pigs as bad animals
