Will Someone Please Feed His Kidney Stone?

A mistranslation by a French news agency reporting on New Orleans turns out hilarious:

Voiceover: “Un homme a terre, qui dans un souffle parvient peine dire une quipe de reporters.” [a man on the ground, barely manages to tell a team of reporters]

Offscreen (in English): “Are you alright?”

Man on the ground (in English): “I got a kidney stone“

Voiceover (allegedly translating from English): “qu il est affam.” [that he is starving.]

You gotta wonder if stupidity is contagious in NOLA right now. (via Unknown Genius)

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.
