Things I just learned I didn't know

On Japanese TV, Monty Python’s Flying Circus is translated as Gay Boys’ Dragon Show. One of my favorite skits, Upper Class Twit of the Year, becomes The Aristocratic Deciding Foolish No. 1 Guy, which would have made a really great nickname for Dubya.

How do you find out these things? I'm very impressed.

I've always enjoyed the instructions that sometimes come with Japanese-made goods -- the ones that were clearly translated into English by someone whose familiarity with English is, maybe, a little sketchy. They're often quite comical.
