Translating A Joke

Posted by pchenery July 13, 2009 in the Group General Discussion.

Here's a simple English joke someone sent me. For fun, and to test my translating skills, I included my translation of the joke into Chinese. Appreciate if any poddies can correct my mistakes. Also, I would like to get input from any Chinese folks on whether they think the joke is funny. Thanks !

World's Shortest Fairy Tale

Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl  'Will you marry me?'  The girl said, 'NO!'  And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and went fishing and hunting and played golf a lot and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.

The end 

My translation attempt:
