There are loads of these sorts of mistranslations.  And it goes both ways.  They had to change chevy nova name in Spainish countries because Nova translates to No Go and who would want to buy a car that is a No Go.

One of my favorites was Bakaroo Bansia (Really Old Movie Title)  in Japan that translated to Hail to the Emperor that Son of a Bitch.  They had to change it for the foreign markets.

This is why kiddies don't trust the babble fish all the time.

Damn College Marketing class, usless education.  I am sure I picked that up from there way back.  The story stuck with me because my first car was this sweet 72 Chevy Nova with a 350 engine.

Mistranslation of culturally acceptable terms.  Puke do you feel better now?
