Lord of the *what*?

Via ThisIsBroken.com, here’s a really baaaa-d translation from French regarding Tolkien’s famous fantasy trilogy.

(And for those who are wondering how that mistranslation could possibly have been made, it helps to know that the French word for lambs is agneaux…)

[Edited to add: Also, tours can mean either “towers” and “turns”. Naturally, the translator made the wrong choice there as well.]

Spellbound hitting DVD next month

Filed under: General — codeman38 @ 12:50 am

Spellbound, the National Spelling Bee documentary, will be coming to DVD on January 20 of next year according to amazon.com.

Mark your calendars, spelling bee geeks. And I mean that in the nicest possible way; of course, what would you expect since I fall into that category myself? 😉
