How about "coger"? Here it is "to catch" or "to pick", but in Argentina is "to ****". I've heard "concha" as "cuñt" around here, though.

Fixed. I picked another similar image without the c-word in its filename that it's automatically censored by SSC.

It wasn't censored before AFAIK. I myself don't censore the curse words if I don't insult nobody as it was the case in my last post, but that damn SSC censorship forced me to spell the c-word with a "ñ" in order to bypass it. But at least it doesn't censore Scunthorpe, that British town known for being sometimes censored.

OTOH, since last year SSC doesn't censore "mierda" (Spanish for "shit"), it was previously censored.

Google Instant is also very strict with censorship. You can find porn things with Google but Google Instant don't suggest anything while you are typing. If I type "Troia" (ancient Greek town in Turkey or modern town in Apulia) it doesn't suggest anything because in Italian means also sl*t. Same with Sesso (village in Emilia but also sex).
Yahoo Answer also replace dirty words with asterisks and sometimes deletes whole questions.

Nice campaign held by a local chocolate producer from Romania:





PS: for those of you that don't know: many international artists that had a concert in Romania said "Welcome to Budapest" (instead of Bucharest), and 400 football fans that wanted to see last year's Europa League Final in Bucharest arrived by mistake in Budapest.

Well, not that strict. If I type "Polla" it suggests anything despite meaning "dick" in Spanish.

I remember the Athletic fans going to Budapest instead of Bucharest. And all those press reports quoting the Hungarian capital instead of the Romanian one.

And "Iceland not Ireland".

If you look at a world map you won't find Slovenia or maybe you will found it with glasses or microscope.

The Osceola County Expressway Authority in Florida uses a banner of a German Autobahn on its site:

It was obvious that that hill couldn't be in Osceola County.

Well, some people (and I think it is majority in Slovakia) confuse the english names of Latvia and Lithuania.

Here is the reason:
Latvia = Lotyšsko
Lithuania = Litva

And Slovensko (Slovakia in Slovak) resembles more Slovenia than Slovakia.

"Slovensko" also means "Slovene Lands" in Slovenian.

The best comparison between Slovenia and Slovakia can be found here: Slovenske avtoceste vs Slovenské dial'nice.
