The Google and Elmer Fudd

So here I am in Luso, outside of Mealhada, outside of Coimbra in Portugal, and I finally get some WiFi connectivity after a week of none in Lisbon. (Great GPRS and mobile roaming, but very little free WiFi.) I go to The Google, and it thinks I speak/read Portuguese based on my IP address. Reasonable. I open Preferences looking for English — should have been Ingles — and I stumbled across Elmer Fudd as a language option. I don’t know — maybe it’s the wine. Maybe it’s my wife, laughing over my shoulder — but it cracked me up. Now I have choices like Hungawian, Awabic, Cwoatian and Fwench. The rest of The Google’s are that way, too.
