* CompletelyDifferentTitle: ''Coke en stock'' ("Coke On Board") was translated into English as ''[=Tintin=] The Red Sea Sharks'', perhaps because the first word in the title might be taken to mean Coca-Cola (the story reveals it to be a code word for slaves). "Coke" can of course mean "Cocaine" and the original intended meaning of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coke_%28fuel%29 a kind of coal]].



* TheThingThatWouldNotLeave: Haddock goes on the investigation just to get away from Abdullah. On returning he finds to his relief that the RoyalBrat and his entourage has left the day before, only for Jolyon Wagg to turn up, having decided to hold a car rally at Marlinspike Hall.
