It reminds me of that radio audition where the presenter prank-called people asking "Does Barack Obama pose a possible threat to the US of A"? Many accidentally took him for Osama when a word like "threat" was mentioned

Its strange for us to say "I know nothing" or "I dont know anything"
In one of Slovenian dialects there is even triple negative.

Lots of money, no results. Just a bunch of arrogant s***ers. Look at the Red Sox. They might not have won so much between 1918 and 2004, but they at least kept their identity and stayed relatively normal. They didn't become a showbizz company, like the Yank€€$

Both speakers agree, that this thing is rubbish.
