Do you know what pancakes know?
I’ve noticed that a lot of the recent comment spam here has been in Russian. I don’t speak Russian, so it’s all Greek to me. But I was curious what they were promoting, so I copied one comment and pasted it into Yahoo’s Babel Fish translation service, and it returned this:
To ??? simply! Everyone, pancake, all knows, except me
For some context, this was a comment on the caption contest featuring weird robot costumes. Although I’m not sure if that really adds context, but I’ll make it fit. Let’s see… Were they calling us “pancake”? Surely not. That makes absolutely no sense. The interpretation didn’t give us the full meaning, so we must apply some interpolation. Given the context of the caption contest, perhaps they meant everyone knows what is going on in that picture, except them. That is, even pancakes know what’s going on. Man, it must be tough to be dumber than a stack of flapjacks. I reckon that’s why they’re in the spam business…
