Dear fellow Person of Interest fans: hi! I'm really enjoying the show! I haven't watched the current season yet - just watched episode 105 this weekend. I'm not fast.

I have been spoilered a tiny bit and I know there is a dog, and that dog understands DUTCH. (And I just got pointed at a twitter that is purportedly by that dog, and in Dutch, but it's all the worst, literal, Google translate garbage, alas.)

So: if you are writing PoI fanfic, and you happen to need Dutch words or phrases?


I will supply you! They will make sense, and be spelled right!

Feel free to comment here or email me, and if it's for Yuletide, your secret is safe with me.

Just don't tell me anything too spoilery about the new season or eps later than 105, please? And for the same reason, I can't actually beta for you. But I will translate. :-)

Ooh, ooh, show me the bad-translation Twitter feed so I can point and gawk and laugh!

It's like people think it's not a real country

It was invented by Disneyland, to use up all the extra wooden shoes and windmills left over from the It's A Small World ride. Trufax.

From: [personal profile] jae have a point about the annoyance of the "not thinking it's a real country" thing. But as long as the SHOW doesn't do that, and it's just some dude/dudette with a Twitter account, it's more in the "point and laugh" ballpark for me than the "teeth-gnashing" one.

That Twitter account is...surprisingly unfunny, though. I actually can't figure out what the original English sentences of some of them must have been. "Kan ik stoofpot eieren"?

What a kind offer! You are indeed the very first person I would have thought of for proper Dutchpicking. (Ah, to be slashing in the autumn, Dutchpicking through the fields...)
