I think it's a matter of someone not speaking "the Queen's English" as their
first language.  It happens in a lot of languages...I don't recall what the
exact translation meant, but, for example, in Japan, they had to change the
Japanese version of the English name for Coca Cola as it came out meaning
something pretty awful.  Another example is reading the English version of
how to use chopsticks as found on the chopstick wrappers you get in Chinese
restaurants!  And...I know for sure that, if you pronounce the Chinese word
for mother the wrong way, with the wrong inflection (in pin-yin Mandarin),
you'll be calling Mom a horse!  So this is an easy thing to do in any
