He who laughs last, laughs best. O que significa?

Hi there! Today I’m going to present you another proverb in English. I’ve told you before that proverbs are very common in spoken language. If a person hurts you in  a way or another, you may seek revenge. So, the person who is able to make the last move and enjoy it has the most fun. The proverb that expresses this idea is: “he who laughs last, laughs best”. In Portuguese language we say: “quem ri por último, ri melhor”. But when people tell a joke that someone doesn’t understand we usually say: “he who laughs last, didn’t get the joke” or “he who laughs last, thinks slowest”.

You can see other proverbs here: PROVERBS
That’s it”
See you next time! 🙂
