Today, while I was looking up the English translation for the Dutch word redundant (which, not surprisingly, turned out to be redundant – both the act and the translation), a few entries further in the dictionary I noticed the word reebok. Since I knew that the word ree means ‘deer’ and bok means ‘buck’, I knew instantly that this was some kind of horned quadruped. I got curious as to its exact appearance, and did a Google image search expecting to see row upon row of proud, elegantly soaring beasts enclosed in African landscapes.

Imagine my surprise when all I got was shoes.

    In Germany there’s this joke,

    “In [insert region of Germany you are making fun of] haben sie gestern ‘nen Jogger erschossen.”
    “–Was? Warum?”
    “Auf seinen Schuhen stand Reebok.”
