"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

Reimagining Children's Books

From a Lang-8 entry:

"Martine et le cadeau d'anniversaire" est devenu "Martine a empaillé sa sœur"
("Martine and the Birthday Present" has become "Martine has stuffed her sister")

"Martine en voyage" est devenu "Martine carbure au LSD"
("Martine takes a trip" has become "Martine is high on LSD" - this is especially funny in English)

"Martine a une étrange voisine" est devenu "Martine a retrouvé son chat"
("Martine has a strange neighbour" has become "Martine has found her cat again")
