I suppose it must be common to mistake all germanic languages for German - my son's potty chair has the german word: "Achtung!" for the warning, but the text underneath is Dutch. They did the opposite for the Dutch warning... Way to go Wal-Mart :P

    You actually shop at Walmart?

    I haven't set foot in one for 5 or 6 years. Even though my neighbors say that they have the best produce in town (small town!), I won't do it and I encourage everyone I know to avoid Walmart. I was in The Hague once and heard an American tourist (which I was at the time too) ask a Dutch person if they spoke German in bad German (i.e. reading from the German <> English Dictionary). Apparently, they visited The Netherlands without understanding the history of the Dutch and the Germans.

    Down with Walmart!

    Yup, you're right, but not the first ;) ... See: http://www.oreillynet.com/cs/user/view/cs_msg/5063 - this should be fixed in the main text shortly...
