I’m not talking about saying, “Oh, you big dumb smelly Yank!” Or even preconceptions about Americans—lord knows, I KNOW what they are!
I mean puns and names and such. Log onto the www.engrish.com web site and you’ll see attempts to translate Japanese into English that often has hilarious results. Also, third-grade “funny” foreign names like Hu Flung Dung, Fritz von Schpittendroolen, Paddy O’Furniture or Lord Loveaduck.
Are there any multilingual Dopers who can recall American names or phrases or products that are particularly hilarious to foreigners?
