William Heath Robinson, who should have been even more of an inspiration for steampunk. These are his solutions for maintaining a genteel country lifestyle in the modern city.

That's a major problem in international marketing and explains why a lot of Japanese car companies like Lexus use names that seem evocative but don't appear in any dictionary. Rolls Royce was going to call a model the Silver Mist until they found out what it means in German: shit, manure and so on.

Slang complicates things too, and Honda found out that Fitta was Swedish slang for vagina and a car they had intended to market with that name was going to be advertised with slogans like "Small on the outside, big on the inside" and "Use it for your daily pleasure." Whoops...

By the way, "My hovercraft is full of eels" is "A légpárnásom tele van angolnákkal" in Hungarian.

Local forces were unable to sell the alcohol due to religious and cultural differences in Afghanistan.
A defence ministry spokeswoman said on Monday that they had found a civilian contractor to repatriate the drinks.
[...]
More than 60,000 cans of beer and hundreds of bottles of wine and champagne are at Camp Marmal near Mazar-i-Sharif in northern Afghanistan, the paper reported.

Spokeswoman Christina Routsi announced on Monday that the contractor will now fly these back to Germany before the last German troops leave.

Okaaaaay, so today, a man slapped President Macron, and guess what he shouted, the idiot ?

Listen carefully at 0:31 to 0:33

MONTJOIE ! SAINT DENIS ! - just like the cult movie above, "Les visiteurs" - Godefroy de Montmirail defending from the CRS.

France is doomed... the brain dead have sized power ahead of their idol Marine le Pen.

Chevrolet had to change the name of the 'Nova' in Mexico years ago after they were told 'No Va' meant 'No Go' in Mexican.
Nova in Spanish actually means ... Nova. A type of a star. Unlike Pajero, this is a myth. Altough some people didd joke anobout the "no va", they didn't change the name and it sold allegedly quite well.


From similar area: Before Coca Cola chose official way how to transliterate its name to Chinese, many vendors allegedly used their own combinations of Chinese characters that sounded vaguely like Coca Cola. This included "wax-flattened mare" and "bite the wax tadpole".

Then again, as I already mentioned up thread, circa 2010 and within the span of a few weeks three ministers of President Sarkozy made unbelieveable slip of the tongue (no crass joke there please).

Rachida Dati shot first, mangling "inflation" into "fellation" - blowjob. Live on TV, a sunday afternoon.

Then it was Brice Hortefeux, who mangled "fingerprints" and "genetic fingerprints" ("empreintes GEN-etiques et dig-ITALES) into LES EMPREINTES GEN-ITALES - which exactly translates as "genitals fingerprints" (I don't even want to imagine a policeman asking mine, the horror !)

And finally, Prime Minister François Fillon, live on TV at parliament, mangled "gaz de shiste" (shale gas) into "gaz de shit" (weed smoke)

I'm sure he was just being sarcastic.
Yes, I'd agree he was just indirectly invoking King Canute to make a point.
The problem is he was absolutely guaranteed he'd get the stereotypical Cnut interpretation (I'm so stupid I think my ego can stop tides) rather than the subtle one (I'm well aware of the limits of my power, watch me stop this tide, not) from the other side/the media. The chance to look stupid, particularly if the Forestry Service official had chosen to answer the point with a physics lesson, is so high you'd have to be stupid to take it. So he's damned either way.

Another problem is people using Google translate and thinking they're fluent in a language. "Ari" means genitals when it's combined with a gender reference. Vagina would be "ari ng babae," which is loosely "something belonging to a woman."

The creator is Filipino btw.
