If all else fails, immortality can always be assured by spectacular error. -- John Kenneth Galbraith
The current quote at the bottom of this
/. page seems a bit in bad taste. Maybe the /. software has not only become sentient, but become an arse-hole too:
Anonymusing writes "In spoken Chinese, 'grass-mud horse' sounds virtually identical to an obscenity (hint: it begins with "mother-") — and as a cartoon character, it has become an amazing phenomenon. Meant as a subversive attack on censors, the alpaca-like mythical creature has led to a cuddly stuffed animal — selling over 180,000 in a few weeks — and a wildly popular YouTube video with children's voices singing words that are either completely benign or incredibly offensive, depending on how you listen." Update: 03/13 09:29 GMT by T : Since this story was set up, the originally linked video seems to have been pulled. Searching YouTube reveals that there are some alternatives available, at least for now.
This is one place where "ironically" could've been used correctly.
