Names of American shows in foreign countries

DIFF’RENT STROKES
The Spanish title of the white-man-adopts-black-children sitcom cuts right to the chase: Blanco y Negro, or “Black and White.” Elsewhere, the show is known as “Little Boy Arnold Is Popular” (Japan) and “My Family Is a Mess” (Brazil).

BOB THE BUILDER
In Finland, this kids’ show isn’t about a guy named Bob, and he isn’t a builder. He’s known there as Puuha-Pete, or “Potter Pete.”

MURDER, SHE WROTE
In Germany, it’s known as Mord ist ihr Hobby, or “Murder Is Her Hobby” (which explains all those murders in that tiny Maine town).

Studies show: TV is the third most talked-about subject, after “cost of living” and “family.”

A man had open heart surgery, and when he woke up he saw that the curtains were drawn over the windows in his hospital room. The doctor came in to check on the man and noticed that he looked a little perplexed by the closed curtains. “Please don’t be alarmed,” the doctor said. “There’s a large fire on the grounds right now, and we didn’t want you to wake up and think the surgery was a failure.”

In the world of computer programs, what is a CAPTCHA?

A program used to verify that data is being entered by a human, not a computer robot or another automated program. Generally seen at the end of a fill-in online form, it typically asks the user to decipher a series of visually distorted numbers and letters. CAPTCHA is an acronym for completely automated public Turing test to tell computers and humans apart. The Turing test, named for British scientist Alan Turing, is used to evaluate the intelligence level of machines.

    Thanks. I also think it's sad that more people are interested in a rock star than a former actor and president.

A woman was at the department store, paying for her purchase. As she searched for her wallet, the cashier noticed a large TV remote in her purse.
“Oh, do you always carry your TV remote with you?” the cashier asked.
“No,” the woman replied, “but my husband refused to come shopping with me, so I figured this was the worst thing I could legally do to get back at him.”

TV TREASURES

At a sports memorabilia convention in 1984, a man purchased a 1951 Minneapolis Millers jersey (#28) for $50. He thought it was a fun relic of the long-defunct local minor-league baseball team. Then he found out who had worn it: Willie Mays. He could even verify it belonged to Mays because he found a picture of Mays wearing it. He took the item to Antiques Roadshow, where the jersey’s value was estimated at $80,000.
