If you're clad in woad then Roman intervention is inevitable.

Surely you know all woads lead to Rome.

No, I didn't break Babelfisch.

It's a german wordgame kind of thing. The sentences "Ich habe zehn Finger. An jeder Hand fünf, und zwanzig an Händen und Füßen." ("I have ten fingers. Five on each Hand, and twenty on hands and feet [together]."), when pronouncing it in a different way than the one that is expected, sounds like "Ich habe zehn Finger an jeder Hand. Fünfundzwanzig an Händen und Füßen." ("I have ten fingers on each hand. Twenty-five on hands and feet [together]." Notice how "Fünf und Zwanzig" becomes "Fünfundzwanzig" - Twenty-five [It's literally "Five-and-Twenty"] - if you leave out the pause introduced by the comma.). It's a wordgame that sadly cannot be transferred into another knowledge without requiring some explanation. Also, it only works when being *said*, because when written down, you have to write either of the two possibilites, which of course defeats the wordgame's purpose.

P.s.: Yes, I realise that nobody actually has fingers on their feet, neither in German nor in English.

By the way, it should have been "Sie brauchen Babelfisch!" (though the "c" is optional, depending on wheter or not you consider the website as a separate object with that name or not. In the german translation of the book, "Babelfish" would have been "Babelfisch".

Also, there's no need to be so formal. You were adressing me with in the third person plural. You could have just used the second person singular, "Du". In that case your sentence would have been "Du brauchst Babelfisch!".

Oh, and did you know that English is actually a very formal language? Everybody is so polite to each other, adressing rich and poor, young and old, each and everyone without exception, adressing each other with "you". It's somehow related to the french formal form "vous" (second person singular, formal. Informal it is "tu"). In German you could say that in English, everyone "Ihrzt" everyone else ("Ihr" being the second person plural in German. It used to used as formal form too, but these days it's used for nobility at most, and that would still be quite weird these days. Even nobility is adressed with "Sie" these days. And we don't have much nobility left around here these days, anyway. In fact, most of the nobility in my area died in a plane crash when visiting the relatives of the English nobility.)
