Deadly Translations

The other day I saw a strange McDonalds advertisement for Happy Meals. In big cheerful letters next to some cute animals, it proclaimed, "Die pets!" I was shocked that Happy Meals had become so violent, and it took me a minute to remember that I was in Germany, and "die" means "the." 
Ah...deadly translations.
