Wait just one God damn minute. Colgate in Spanish translates into “go hang yourself,” like really? In a bizarre twist in the world of translations this is actually the case, but not always, and we will explain.
Most of us are familiar with poorly translated directions or instructions. Under most circumstances these mix ups between languages are accidental, and a cause for great enjoyment at the translators expense. But every now and then a translation comes along that was not accidental at all, and means something completely different. This is the case with Colgate which translates into Spanish as go hang yourself.
