[[TheStinger By the way]], "El Niño" is Spanish for "The boy", ''id est'' Jesus Christ, since El Niño is usually noticed around Christmas.

* In general, it's a common problem for fan subs to intentionally leave certain words untranslated, either due to a misconception that they have a stronger connotation in the original language than they really do (such as "[[TrueCompanions Nakama]]") or just plain [[TheyJustDidntCare carelessness]] ([[Manga/DeathNote Translator's Note: "keikaku" means "plan"]]). Or just because the fansubbers are pandering to hardcore anime fans and assume they're familiar with the meaning of, say, "baka", and/or because, for them, these words [[RuleOfCool sound cooler]] when said in Japanese.

* This is a bit of a RunningGag in ''Series/TheDailyShow'' regarding Arabic phrases with the article "Al." For example, in one episode featuring an interview with an AlJazeera reporter, Jon [[SarcasmMode helpfully]] informs us that "Al Jazeera" means "The Jazeera" and that hopefully their guest will explain what a "Jazeera" is (he doesn't).[[note]]It means "the island," referring to the country of Qatar.[[/note]]

* A ''Series/KidsInTheHall'' sketch had Dave Foley as a stereotypical Frenchman talking about how beloved Kevin [=MacDonald=] is in France, where it is known as "Le Poopie," which is French for "The Poopie."

** A similar gag occurs in an early ''{{Deadpool}}'' story, where the captions helpfully translate a Spanish-speaking {{mook}}'s pleas of "No" into English as..."No".
