A very brief note on a television language.

Do NOT suggest this entry include an exhaustive list. I meant to keep it that short, it's an experiment.

Florida Sailor All is well with the world

An interesting Entry, I am sure I watched at least few episodes of the series, but I never noticed the signs and their unique language.

smiley - offtopic You remind of a book I read http://www.amazon.com/Old-Harrys-Bunkside-Book-Sleightholme/dp/0229116159 about British working class 'yachtsman'.

In one part he arrives at a French fuel dock and thinks the sign 'Defence de Fumer' (http://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/french-english/-d%C3%A9fense-de-fumer) is a political slogan. He decides to ignore the obvious passion of the French people.

A local official runs up screaming and waving his arms when Harry starts to strike his match on the side of the petrol pump so he can light his pipe.

/ smiley - offtopic

I wonder how many casual viewers, who speak only their own language even have noticed the fake words. If so, that makes this Entry even more appropriate to the Guide.

smiley - cheers

F smiley - dolphin S

Wow - this was picked quickly! I read it a few days ago, but didn't get chance to comment...

I really enjoyed the flavour of this Entry, but there were a few bits I wasn't clear about - I haven't seen any Mission: Impossible episodes from start to finish, sadly...

"Barney was chasing rats in the hotel." - who's Barney?

"Installations et Reparations Electroniques: Probably a fictionalised Haiti" - what does this mean? The sign was seen somewhere on a fictionalised Haiti?

I think you use the abbreviation IMF before mentioning it stands for Impossible Missions Force.

"The ne plus ultra of van signs. You would move away immediately." - does this mean you would move away from a van with Emerzenciskija written on it?

smiley - ok

Yes, I was sort of assuming that readers would click on (and read) the previously existing Entry on Mission: Impossible. smiley - laugh

I can fix those, and I'll do it quickly, before somebody makes an editing copy. smiley - run
