Arabitch bath

Studiolum@Poemas del río Wang visited the so-called Arab baths* at Palma de Mallorca and discovered that in some language or another they pertain to “A woman from the middle east or Arabia that is a bitch.”

*Gabriel Ensenyat i Pujol of the University of the Balearic Islands, mysteriously absent from the THE’s current list of the world’s top 400 universities, says for reasons that are unclear that the baths are Jewish, and that if you publicly disagree with him about anything he should be able to denounce you to the authorities.

Föcked Translation (414): I posted to a light-hearted blog called Fucked Translation over on Blogger from 2007 to 2016, when I was often in Barcelona. Its original subtitle was "What happens when Spanish institutions and businesses give translation contracts to relatives or to some guy in a bar who once went to London and only charges 0.05€/word." I never actually did much Spanish-English translation (most of my work is from Dutch, French and German) but I was intrigued and amused by the hubristic Spanish belief, then common, that nepotism and quality went hand in hand, and by the nemeses that inevitably followed.
