Joe Biden and intestinal fortitude March 28, 2009

Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Random musings, Translation Sites.

I have recently subscribed to Barack Obama’s Teleprompter’s Blog. Not his speechwriter – the actual computer teleprompter (or TOTUS). I have no idea who is writing the blog, but if you aren’t reading Barack Obama’s Teleprompter’s Blog, you should be. The blog is hilarious and offers insight inside the White House in a very light and tongue-in-cheek manner. Today’s post entitled Who Gave Joe The Pen? reports on a translation flub in an op-ed piece that was reprinted in English, Spanish and Portuguese on the occasion of the Vice President’s trip to Latin America. It’s worth a read because I know my fellow linguists will chuckle.

I subscribed to it after I read your post here but I unsubscribed today. Maybe I just don’t get it 😦
