My little brothers and sister are watching reboot with me. This is actually the best. :)
I love how potato in French is pomme de terre, which pretty much means “earth apple.”
like what stupid frenchman saw this:
and said “zis petite légume looks like a, how you say, APPLE! hmmm… but it grows in ze earth… HON HON HON! MAIS OUI! C’EST UNE POMME DE TERRE!”
j’adore comment ananas se dit pineapple en anglais, ce qui veut littéralement dire “pomme de pin”, genre quel type anglais a vu ça:
et s’est dit : “ow cette étrange big fruit ressemble à une, how do you say, POMME! hmmm… mais plutôt une pomme qui pousse dans les pins… HU HU HU! OH YES, IT’S A PINEAPPLE!”
(z’avez vu, on peut le faire aussi… hon hon hon!)
J’en pleure de rire.
It bothers me that many people seem to be brushing off the whitewashing of Khan just because Benedict Cumberbatch played it so well. It’s true that Cumberbatch’s acting was superb, but this argument rubs me the wrong way because it’s as if they are subtly saying that a brown actor could not have played the role just as well.
