Dying Czechs good for the economy, says Philip Morris. Why not just toss them right into the incinerator, Philip Morris? Oh yeah–because they wouldn’t buy your cigarettes.
Here’s a couple of good links to look at while you’re waiting for me to hurry up and give you an update:
“McDonald’s reassures customers that its beef is so closely regulated that its hamburgers can be traced back to the individual animal they came from.” If that’s indeed true, then they’re doing things very differently there than they do it here in America. In the U.S. you couldn’t trace a hamburger back to the individual state it came from. I hope the McDonald’s-going Czechs are wary of these statements.
Havel is pro-missile-shield? I guess I don’t know enough about Czech politics to know if this is unexpected or not. I’m sure Havel wants to do everything he can to integrate the Czech Republic into the West… but will playing to the U.S.’s interests help them into the EU?
To the lucky readers of California, Florida, Illinois, New York, Massachusetts, Georgia and North Carolina: A cause for celebration.
To the person who found my site looking for “words that start with x in czech,” here you go, courtesy Josef Fronek’s 1999 English-Czech Czech-English Dictionary:
- battleaxe, shrew
- to xerox
- xerox (adj.)
So presumably Czech children’s ABC books are stuck with xylophone just like we are. That is to say, if they include X at all. My kapesni slovnik doesn’t even include any X words, nor does Frantisek Kabele and Ludek Vimr’s Brousek pro tvuj jazicek, a children’s book of ABC rhymes (unfortunately one the few Czech children’s books I own).
Oh, and to the person who found my site searching for “mean little dogs,” sorry I couldn’t be of service.
And by the way, when I used the phrase ‘sexy vegetables’ (below, on September 13), I certainly didn’t think anyone would come here looking specifically for sexy vegetables. To the person whose search for that phrase led you here… I can imagine you were disappointed.
