English term or phrase:Comedians had a field day with it
This holiday movie season, one hot new release enjoyed the lion's share of media attention — thanks to the memorable performance of its leading lady. But the film isn't going to win any Oscars, and while many have already seen it, this movie that won't be coming to a theater near you. Why? It's the Paris Hilton sex tape.
Shot 2½ years ago in green-tinged night-vision with a home video camera, the tape captures a 20-year-old Paris Hilton in a XXX-rated tryst with her then-boyfriend, a 32-year-old businessman named Rick Solomon.
Comedians had a field day with it, of course — but just why does this sort of stuff fascinate us?
高兴得 take advantage of the opportunity to use it (as material为题材for their shows)
Explanation: to have a field day = to enjoy yourself very much or take advantage of an opportunity eg The newspapers had a field day when the wedding was announced (= they wrote a lot about it and printed many photographs of it).
to have a field day = to enjoy yourself very much by doing something you do not very often get the chance to do (因做不常有机会做的事而)过得特别痛快.eg If the newspapers hear about this, they'll have a field day! 报界若闻及此事会忙得不亦乐乎!
