Re: Holiday Calendar 2010

Inspired by a case of using online translators discussed recently somewhere else than CoS I hereby give you the translation of the saying which tells that today is the end of Christmas.

Twentieth Knut Christmas run out And if I put the words of the original text in a grammatically more correct order I get Twentieth Knut running out of Christmas That one is even better, me thinks.

And I'm not telling you what the original text is. Or even what language.

It does neither help my coffee nor my pc screen that I know the original language and the event which made you use an online dictionary first hand, Alastor.

I wonder if that Knut fellow likes eggs.

Re: Holiday Calendar 2010

I'm afraid any connection between that Knut and eggs is passé. He was assassinated in 1131. So it's a while ago.
