"Laughing stock" có từ "stock" là nguyên vật liệu -> trò cười.

Ví dụ
I think it's about time someone talked straight (nói thẳng) to you because you're going to end up (kết cục) making this town a laughing stock.

Cycling campaigners say that a new segregated (cô lập, cách ly) cycle lane being built in Norwich will make the city “a national laughing stock” – because it has trees planted in the middle of it.

Following the White House release of a memo (bản ghi nhớ) on President Trump’s July 25 phone conversation with his Ukrainian counterpart (đồng cấp), Russia’s foreign ministry spokeswoman (phát ngôn viên) said Wednesday Democratic leaders were making the U.S. the “laughing stock of the world.” She also suggested mockingly (chế giễu) which confidential (tuyệt mật) U.S. documents should be made public next.
