Teri Hatcher said she seems to know less about Superman than anyone else. She seems to be right because she said that she starred in 88 episodes of Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, but actually she was one episode off. The series consisted of 87 episodes as the first season had 21 episodes, not 22.

'less than anyone else'? So everybody else would have said 87 iso 88? Don't be daft.

I'm not daft, just an advanced pedant.

Haven't seen the episode yet, but I do like the new homepage.

I liked it. What is the German fascination with naming all the animals after pigs?

And they're sticking to the tradition of putting something Danish in the end credits just for me!

The German Animal Names Flowchart

English isn't averse to the odd porconym either: groundhog, hedgehog, guinea pig. And porcupine comes from the old French for "spiny pig" [etymonline].

They forgot the German for pangolin, which is Tannenzapfentier (pinecone animal).

My German colleague raises an objection to the description of a Turkey as a "threatening chicken". Whilst "hahn" definitely means chicken, "trut" doesn't mean anything in German, and threatening is translated as "bedrohlich".

AFAIK, a Hahn is a cockerel. A chicken is ein Huhn.
