Language mixture redundancy

Thursday, July 12th, 2012

Our everyday language is cluttered with some really funny things if you look for them.

Los Angeles means the angels in Spanish. Now, when the Anaheim Angels returned back to their original name, the Los Angeles Angels, they were asking us all to call them the the angels angels (if you want it all in English) or los los angeles angeles (if you want it all in Spanish).
