IdiomsИдиомы английского языка. Emotions.jpgEmotions → Laughter

Somebody told a very funny joke at the office yesterday, and we were all in stitches for five minutes afterwards. Then the boss came in. He was in a bad mood and started to talk about a work problem. I couldn't forget the joke and I couldn't keep a straight face. The boss asked me what I was smiling at. When I told him, he just looked at me and said nothing. I thought he was going to throw me out. But then he burst out laughing!


in stitches - laughing a lot - валяться по полу от смеха
keep a straight face - not smile or laugh - сохранять невозмутимый вид, стараться не рассмеяться; удерживаться от смеха
burst out laughing - suddenly laugh loudly - рассмеяться



Переведите на родной язык:

The speaker was so fitnny that the audience were in stitches.
I wanted to laugh, but I managed to keep a straight face.
He looked angry, but suddenly burst out laughing.
