“he’ll save children, but not the british children” scans incredibly well https://youtu.be/sbRom1Rz8OA

Oh gawd, all their videos are hilarious! But I love that video! And I have such a stupid anecdote only for people that really like that quoted line.

@susan and I were visiting Jason, and Jason was complaining to Susan about the price of Brita filters, and how e wanted filtered water, but didn’t want to pay as much, to which I replied in song, “He’ll buy filters, but not the Brita filters!” The three of us had a good laugh. :slight_smile:

This was from a post on the Language Log on December 09, 2007 called The Etiology and Elaboration of a Flagrant Mistranslation, a guest post by Victor Mair. It begins with:

A series of earlier Language Log posts have discussed the curious phenomenon seen in the grocery-store sign on the right: absurdly crude English mistranslations in bizarrely inappropriate contexts.

and goes on to explain and attempt to trace, in great detail, the mistranslation of various words from chinese to english as “fuck.” omg it’s so good.

IT GETS ME EVERY TIME
