托福词汇之“McRefugee麦难民”

 McRefugees is a neologism referring to those who stay overnight in McDonald's 24-hour fast food restaurant.

  “麦难民”是新出现的一个词,指在麦当劳24小时店里过夜的人。

  The term was first created in Japanese language, which originally means "net cafe refugee", people sleep in 24-hour Internet cafes or manga cafes. In Japan, most McDonald's restaurants are operated around the clock. Due to unemployment and high rents and transportation costs, McRefugees are forced to stay at a McDonald's overnight.

  这个说法早源于日本,初指在24小时网吧或者漫画咖啡店过夜的人。在日本,多数麦当劳都是通宵营业的。由于失业高房租以及交通支出等因素,不少人都选择在麦当劳过夜。于是就有了McRefugee(麦难民)这个说法。

  The phenomenon and word spread to Hong Kong, where some McRefugees play video games and are known as McGamers.

  后来,这个现象和说法又传到了香港,不少人在麦当劳里过夜打游戏,于是又被称为“麦游戏族”
