We have currently a hat called "Joga Bounito":

Bounito? Which language is that?

It is clearly a latin-derived language, so not English, German, Arabic, Chinese...

  • In Portuguese it should be "Joga Bonito" (which means "Plays beautifully").
  • I'm not sure about Spanish, but I guess that it should be then "Juega Bonito".
  • I'm not sure about Italian either, but I guess that it should be "Gioca Bel".
  • In French (not sure) it should be "Joue Beau".
  • In Romen (really unsure) it should be "Joacă Frumos".

So, the best guess is that it is in Portuguese. Further this hat is basically a soccer ball, and in this year we had the FIFA World Cup in Portuguese-speaking Brazil, which is known for being a country where soccer is the main sport. So "Joga Bounito" would really be Portuguese.

But there is a small problem. It has a typo: It should not be "Bounito", it should be "Bonito".

    Oops. I didn't hunt down the spelling before this hat was shipped. I'll see if we transfer the extra "u" to the British. – Jon Ericson Dec 15 '14 at 21:16
  • @JonEricson is it safe to assume that when we spin the wheel of blame for Winter Bash 2014, it should always come up you? – psubsee2003 Dec 16 '14 at 0:18

    You surely spent lots of time and efforts on a bug report that could just say "there's a typo in [hat name here]". You deserve a bonus hat for that! – Shadow The Curly Braced Wizard Dec 16 '14 at 8:18

Now, it is fixed. :)
